  1. Wow--how did this end up as a forum topic? I don't even know what that means! Clearly, I don't know how this all works! Krista
  2. FYI--Just thought I'd mention a good gluten-free prenatal vitamin. It took me a while to find one that was both gluten-free and had all the nutrients I was looking for (plenty of iron, not too much calcium, plus ginger & red raspberry). Rainbow Light has a line of "Just Once" vitamins. The prenatal is called "Prenatal One Multivitamin." Another plus, you only have to take one a day--many health food store brands have you take 4 to 6. Be sure you get the "Just Once" prenate, though--Rainbow also has a prenate that you need to take several times a day that contains wheat and barley grasses (supposedly gluten free, but I sure wouldn't go there!

  3. Red Robins In Arvada

    We also found the Red Robin in Colorado Springs to be great. The manager was very helpful and I didn't get sick! Plus, my kids love it there. Thumbs up for Red Robin! Krista in Pueblo
  4. Pregnant?

    Regarding pregnancy symptoms, I have three kids (ages 5,3, &1), and I only had symptoms of celiac disease with the last (my symptoms started the very day I got pregnant, in fact!). The symptoms of celiac disease were MUCH worse than any of the morning sickness, fatigue, etc. that I experienced in the first two pregnancies. And once I was diagnosed (just at the end of the first trimester) and I went on a gluten-free diet, I almost instantly went back to feeling as I had in the first two pregnancies. In other words, I think that if you are on a strict gluten-free diet, you should experience symptoms of pregnancy just like any other non-celiac disease person. With the exception of my three months of celiac disease-induced misery, I loved every minute of being pregnant, nausea, exhaustion, and all. And it is SO worth it when holding little munchkins for the first time!! Krista
