  1. Last year I was tested for celiac because of issues with bloating, exhaustion, and alternating constipation/diarrhea. The test came back negative, but I did notice having more energy while trying the gluten-free diet for a few weeks. I attributed the energy to the fact that it was summer (I am a teacher), and went back to eating gluten. Now I am pregnant (3rd trimester) and have had the WORST gas ever! I know it is normal to have more gas during pregnancy, but this is ridiculous. So I decided to try the gluten-free diet again. Sure enough, within 2 days my gas had almost disappeared. The diet is so hard to follow, and can be expensive (as you all know), so this week I kind of gave up. Well, it has been 2 days back on gluten and the horrible gas has returned with a vengeance. What should I do? Could I have gluten intolerance, or is it just a coincidence? Help!
