  1. Exactly! I don't know how else to put it; that's the only way I can compare
  2. Thanks mommy2be it's good to know I'm not alone
  3. It's not always something specific, but usually bread and buns and goodies as those are my favorite. I have good days where I have the motivation to stay away but the bad days take over the good. I have talked to my doctor about it some and she gives me the "this is about you and your baby" talk. I don't want to be judged as I know the harm im doing and I feel like the worlds worst person. I feel like I'm a drug addict using during pregnancy... I guess that's essentially what I'm doing. I dont see my counselor for another couple weeks I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. I wish there was a rehab for gluten addicts...Its everywhere I can't get away from it and as soon as I see it I want it.
  4. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was 17 I am now 23 and going on my second baby. I have followed the diet off and on since diagnosed, but not constant until this past September when my fiance went away to school and I could really focus on myself. However, when I got pregnant in February I haven't been able to control my cravings!! I'll do great for a couple days and I give in. I'm addicted to it, I know I am, but I just don't know what to do. Every day is such a struggle, I feel I can't control myself. I am so embarrassed by this because I know the harm I'm doing to myself and my baby I feel it physically emotionally and I'm also starting to get the spots all over my body from it. I am seeing a counselor but it doesn't seem to help. I've seriously considered a hypnotherapist but I just don't have the money as its $150 for one hour. Any advice or encouragement is appreciated
