  1. Thank you everyone! I am already struggling with this diet (as some of you know I am a veggie too so having a hard time finding food things to fill me up) so I am glad this forum is here for support! I was thinking of stopping for awhile since I was so overwhelmed but now that I'm pregnant I know it is important to stick to it!
  2. LOL because of all your advise I took a test and sure enough....I AM PREGNANT! Going gluten-free mush have caused me to ovulate super early. GFinDC I didn't have to wait 6 months because my endoscopy showed very minimal damage. The dr said my body was already absorbing nutrition just fine bc the Celia hadn't really been affected yet, anyway, it is going to be hard bc with my last pregnancy I was super hungry and craved pasta all the time!
  3. Hi, I think I am experiencing my first time getting Glutened. Stomach cramps, nausea, hurts to push on stomach. I was dumb and ate French fries that were fried in the same oil with other stuff without thinking! I just overall feel yucky. How long will this last? What can I do to feel better? I'm so frustrated I am just crying right now thanks for your suggestions
  4. I am celiac but had no issues when I was eating gluten and that's what makes me want to go back do that I can get my cycle regular again. But I will wait a little longer to see if it regulates. Will it eventually go back to normal? I think my hormones are out of wack because I have been super snappy and irritated lately and I don't know why. will that get better? Thanks for you help! And yes, I do eat a lot of soy but always have bc I am a vegetarian...I'm not eating any more than normal.
  5. Hi! I am newly diagnosed and gluten-free for two months. I have also been a vegetarian for 16 years and will not be changing that (I do eat dairy). I am finally getting a hang of eating gluten-free at home through cooking and have been bringing frozen gluten-free foods for lunch at work. My biggest problem is finding foods to take with me to eat a meal if I'm not around an oven or microwave. When I'm hungry I'm REALLY hungry and snacks like nuts, bars, fruit, veggies just don't cut it. I need real and a real meal. Any ideas and suggestions? (I don't like any gluten free sandwich breads so that is already out of the question) thanks for the help!!!
  6. Hi, I have a one year old son and had no problems getting preg. I have always had extremely normal cycles, ovulate at three weeks and period two weeks later. I also always have Symptoms when I ovulate. Anyway, i have been gluten free for 2 months now and have not ovulated and no period!!! What's going on?! My husband and I are ready to try for number 2 and I'm strongly considering going back to my normal gluten full diet!
  7. Welda, I just checked and they are not gluten free...made with wheat...
  8. Thanks all! Where do you get culturell from?
  9. Hi, I am about a month into gluten-free and for the last two weeks my face has been breaking out all over! Acne, whiteheads, blackheads...the whole 9 yards! Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea why or what I can do? TIA
  10. Thanks for the support, feedback, an positive words. I think it is extra frustrating because 1) I am also a vegetarian so my food is already limite and now many of my fav go to soy products are off the table and 2) I had NO symptoms prior to diagnosis so its not like I have the motivation o feeling better and, on fact, I am now having severe gastrointestinal issues ever since I stopped gluten so I feel worse than ever. Grrrr...I'll be ok though...just super frustated
  11. No way! What brand of soy hot dogs are gluten free????!!! (I'm really excited)
  12. Im sure this has been asked but I am new here. What is a gluten free probiotic you recommend? Thanks!!!!
  13. I don't feel like I am living a normal life! I am newly diagnosed (one month) but completely agree with those analogies. It's not "normal" that I can't go out to eat with my friends and family anywhere they want, it's not "normal" that I have to scrutinize everything I put in my body for deaf of getting sick, it's not "normal" that I have to cook three meals for my family because I am the only celiac and dont want to make them suffer this shitty food just because I had to and I have a baby that HAS to be exposed to gluten, and on that note, it's not normal that I can't kiss my baby"s hand he reaches out to me because it has cheerio dust covering it and he doesn't understand why.... I used to give his hands kisses while he was eating. No, I'm sorry, but I don't feel normal at all!!!
  14. My mom has a good analogy for people who just don't get it and say "a little bit won't hurt you though." she says, "it's just like if someone has a peanut allergy, it doesn't matter if they have one peanut or a handful, it still does the same damage and they would have a bad reaction. Celiac is the same, just a little bit is just as bad as eating a whole Bowl of pasta." now, yes we know celiac isn't an allergy but it still gets the point across as most people can understand the peanut thing.
