  1. Great advice Merika! I'm seriously trying to have that outlook. I feel a little wiser this time around, if not a little confused from the celiac disease. I've also decided to embrace every change and expect the bad with the good. Knowing it's coming and knowing it'll end is probably the best advice I could give myself
  2. Jules, Thanks so much for the welcome So how long have you been gluten-free? Congrats on your first child. How far along are you? Mine is still a weeeee little embryo.
  3. Angel, Thanks so much for your reply! I am feeling welcome already. When will you know for sure your Dx? If you even suspect a gluten intolerance of any kind and have already done bloodwork I'd suggest immediately beginning a gluten free diet. It's not the easiest thing to get started, but you'd be amazed at how much better you'll feel. Also I've noticed, day by day, more and more products and recipes are being made available in gluten free forms. So it's definitely DOable! Convincing your family may be another story, but don't let that deter you from doing the best thing for YOUR health. Thanks again for the welcome
  4. Hello to everyone This is my first time here. Dx of celiac disease in February, gluten-free since THAT DAY. It's been such a change for me and my whole family. All so supportive and refer to me as the "No Wheatie Sweetie". Anyway, ALSO I am newly pregnant as well with my second child. So happy, but a little nervous as far as the celiac disease is concerned. Anything I should increase, decrease, watch out for, or advice is MUCH appreciated. Thanks!
