12 Weeks Pregnant And Cc'd

Recommended Posts

I'm really worried that I've done something to hurt my baby. Last night I really wanted pizza, so I bought a gluten free pizza from this place that I've eaten at lots of times before. I've never had any problems when I've had their pizza before so I wasn't worried when I ate it, but an hour later I've had my classic glutened symptoms. I went from being extremely constipated from my pregnancy, to having the worst diarrhea all last night and this morning. I've been drinking lots of water so I'm not getting dehydrated from it. I'm having my 12week ultrasound tomorrow, so at least I will be able to see if the baby's ok.

My celiacs test came back negative (even though from what I've read here, I don't think I had enough gluten in my system to get an accurate result) but the drs at GI specialist all told me I don't have celiac and getting sick from gluten won't have the other problems that celiacs have, but I can't help be worried about miscarriage.

I can't believe how stupid I was to take that risk. :(

My guess is that your baby will be just fine. If you were to gluten yourself on an ongoing basis, that might have an effect, but it sounds as though you're being extremely careful. My mother's celiac was triggered when she was five months' pregnant with me and had to have an emergency appendectomy. The result was that I was born with Ricketts because she wasn't able to absorb Vitamin D and perhaps calcium. Since she didn't know she had celiac, she kept eating gluten throughout her pregnancy. You, however, have knowledge on your side.

Please let us know how your ultrasound goes, okay? Many of us here will be thinking of you....

Even if celiac, one incident is almost certainly not going to cause a miscarriage. The troubles with celiac and pregnancy come from untreated celiac, not contamination lapses.

Thanks for your replies. I had my scan today and the baby was really well. I will just eat at home now so I know that I'm safe.

I'm glad to read that the baby is doing great! Of course it's important to be careful and of course you are doing your best, but I want to also put it out there that no pregnancy is 100% perfect and most babies come out just fine. :)
