  1. Hi, my name is Kelsha. I turn 25 in March. My husband and I have been married for 5 years in Feb. We never used birth control, and managed to get pregnant a year and a half after we got married, but miscarried at 10 weeks. It was that following summer that I started going to my Dr. and he told me that my body was allergic to grains...Well, I "tried" to stay away from wheat...Managed to loose 30 lbs...but, just really mentally/emotionally was not ready to give up the ego part of me that said I should be able to eat every gosh darn thing "everyone" else was... At that time my dr. had told us that he wanted us to commit to the life style change, and be on Birth Control for 6 months... A year and a half went by, of struggling to just maintain weight...Gained back 20 lbs...Finally, in Feb 2008 me and my husband decided we were just going to do it. Stop the excuses, we had recently moved away from all family and friends...so, we knew it was a good time to start since we wouldn't be going to all the family things... I am now down 30 more lbs from that weight. Well, the beginning of July I had emergancy surgery for an ectopic pregnancy...I was 3 and a half months along! Which would have meant that I got pregnant a month and a half after not eating wheat anymore..Which, then my husband and I felt dumb, remembering THEN that Dr. Porter had said we should give ourselves 6 months to be healthy enough to carry... So, now here we are...I do have more hope for getting pregnant now...I do wish I would have followed Dr' orders, and let my body heal a bit before we got pregnant...Now I am down to one tube.... Hope this helps lift some spirits!
