  1. I have been gluten free for about 6 months and my husband and I recently started TTC. I went and bought the Jamieson's prenatal vitamin which is clearly labelled "no gluten" and started taking it. Ick! I started having symptoms very similar to my celiac symptoms, but think it might just be a reaction to the iron in the pills. As a young teenager I was moderately anemic and had a similar reaction to just straight iron pills before I started having any celiac symptoms whatsoever. So I went off the vitamins for a while just to make sure that was what was causing it, and felt way better. Recently went to a drop-in Dr who chewed me out a little bit and said at least go on Folic Acid. So I've been taking them for a couple weeks now and found out yesterday I'm pregnant, YAY!! I don't have a family doc to talk to about it, has anyone else had this kind of reaction? Is there anything else I absoloutely need to be taking until I get hooked up with a doc? Thanks!!!
  2. Thanks everyone, that was really helpful. No test for me!! I don't feel like a slip of paper will make me feel any better. I've been feeling so great, I don't want to mess with it. Thanks again!!
  3. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. A few months ago I had a positive blood test for celiac and was referred to a specialist for a confirmation biopsy. In the meantime I went gluten free as my symptoms had become so bad I was having difficulty working. The other day I got a call back from the clinic with my appointment date, but now I'm not sure I want to do it as I would have to start eating gluten again for it to be accurate. Since I've been dating gluten free I've noticed I've become even more sensitive, if I accidentally eat something a bit contaminated I have a pretty strong reaction. Is there any benefi to the biopsy that would compel me to go through this process I imagine to be so horrible? Thanks:)
