  1. Thank you for your prompt replies! They did antibody tests and they said they weren't suggesting a definite problem, also had thyroid and tsh and all was fine. I went in and specifically had a test to check my folic acid once I found out i was pregnant & that is ok too. I would now like to get my vit D tested as one of you suggested...I find this frustrating that I have to do my research and go back and ask for specific tests as they are not suggested. Anyway, thanks again & I will get on to the vit D. My first pregnancy was fine & resulted in a perfectly healthy child so I will do my best for this to be the same!
  2. Hello, I have recently been told I could be celiac as severely anemic & carry the gene. They cant do gastro biopsy as im 6 weeks pregnant so don't want to put me under for it. I have decided to eat gluten free just incase as I dont want to not be absorbing vital nutrients for the baby. Im taking, iron, pregnancy supplement & calcium. Is there any advice on what else I should be doing/not doing? It has saddened me to hear of a lot of mis-carraiges & still births among celiacs so I really want to ensure Im doing everything possible for a healthy baby. Thanks very much!
