  1. Hi, Im due to have a baby any day now and although I will breastfeed first, Im wondering about formula. I think I read that Enfamil is gluten-free, what about similac? Any insight on this would be appreciated. Thanks, Amber
  2. Anyone Have Infertility.....

    Hi, I have 2 miscarriages this year. I have had 2 normal pregnancies in the past (last one was 8 years ago) and now am having problems. I believe it is due to Celiac and not being gluten free. Everything I have read has said this can lead to infertlity and multiple m/c. I am now gluten-free, just for the last few months. We would like to try again when I have been gluten-free for awhile. Although I know that does not gaurantee a successful pregnancy. I have also been told that once you are gluten free your chances of m/c are the same as any "normal" persons would be. Anyway, I probably havent helped you much, just thought I'd let you know that I can kind of relate to what you are going through. I would say just learn all you can about Celiac and being gluten-free, that has helped me alot. Good luck to you!
  3. I'm Pregnant!

    Congratulations! All you pregnant women give me hope to be able to carry another pregnancy someday. Ive had 2 miscarriages in the past year, probably due to celiac disease and not being gluten free. I have 12 and 8 year old daughters, and had them with no problems before I new about the celiac. I have been gluten-free for 3 months now. Hoping next year we can try one more time with positive results. So happy for you! Good luck with the morning sickness, sounds like that part is almost over.
  4. Oral Contraceptive Pills, Gf Or Not?

    I was wondering the same thing since Im just starting on Yasmin. I actually called the manufacturer just yesterday, and they said that it is safe , gluten-free. Hope that helps. Amber
  5. Hi there, Im new here, but not to Celiac disease. I've had it for years and stupidly ignored it. Im now on a gluten-free diet. I've had 2 normal pregnancies (last one was 8 years ago), but now have had 2 miscarriages in the last 6 months. Im realizing now that they were probably due to untreated celiac disease. My question is- has anyone had a miscarriage, got gluten free, then be able to carry a normal pregnancy down the road? Im worried that I have done too much damage to heal enough to ever be able to carry normally again. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks
