Pregnant And Missing Gluten!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else feel this way??? When I am not pregnant I don't miss it at all! I am SO sensitive and my attacks last days now that I am getting a little older that I don't want anything at all to do with gluten!!! I have been diagnosed over 12+ years ago, and it seems like now that I am pregnant with my 3rd I am craving it. It doesn't matter what commercial I see on TV or what place I drive by...I can smell it, taste it and just plain want it! Actually I don't crave anything much right now, and hardly eat at all because I have been so nauseas...hoping the next few weeks fly by right into 2nd trimester!!! BUT that doesn't seem to make me want this any less. Need some celiac companions to help me feel sorry for myself :D Thanks for letting me share! Why me? Why now??? AHHHHH!!!!!!

I didn't get a direct craving for gluten, but I did want my old favorite munchies. At some point, I gave in to the carb cravings and increased my purchases of the gluten free substitutes. gluten-free waffles have kept me happy recently. Fortunately with my pregnancy, the cravings went in waves and I moved on to something new every month or so.

Congrats and remember this craving will pass.

OH MY GOODNESS I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU!! I actually wrote a post about how I was craving Pizza Hut Breadsticks!!!!!! My doctor thinks I'm not getting enough fat so my body is craving stuff that it knows will fatten me up. Today, however I was craving pastrami so I had hot pastrami and provolone on toasted Udi's with mayo and mustard... SO GOOD! Naturally the morning sickness returned shortly thereafter but...at least I got a short reprieve.

Also, I have noticed that this pregnancy is MUCH WORSE, I can barely eat anything at all, and I have been to the ER 3 times for fluids and zofran in the past month. Not cool. I wonder if it has to do with diet...

I had a craving for BLTs during my pregnancy. I usually don't really like them, but I had two (on Udi's bread) one week in my first trimester. They were fabulous. And I didn't want any more! WACKY!

Isn't that just wild! I know exactly what you are saying K8ling. Maybe it is because I have been SO sick this pregnancy too! I am taking phenergan. Used to be all day morning sickness but it is getting better with acupuncture! UGH! BUT now all I want is arby's (really?) papa john's pizza (thought about writing a letter to them to see WHY Oh WHY they can't make a gluten free pizza) Subway (not in texas so no trial here for the gluten free bread) Penn Station philly cheesesteak sandwhich (the bread really) Olive Garden breadsticks...and yes I even want a WHOPPER! ALL 2000 calories! Sorry if I made anyone's mouth water...just need to get that OUT! I never crave this stuff...it makes me SO sick...but I can't help it. AND to be honest nothing really ever sounds good...not really craving much, just what I can keep down, and it is never any items remotely like these.
