Not Celiac And Pregnant

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

  So i am 4 months pregnant and someone in my family seems to think i have a Gluten intolerance (I feel fine and dont think i have a problem) a few weeks ago i ate gluten infront of them and now they wont talk to me saying that im killing my baby. My question, Is there anyway that Gluten could harm my baby in any way even tho i am not intolerant? Is there any literature online that i can print off to prove that i will be fine and am not going to kill my child. This is getting very frustrating!

That is confusing.  You have to prove you don't have Celiac Disease or Gluten intolerance to them?  Maybe ask them for their proof that a healthy person eating gluten will hurt the baby?  Tell them your doctor has said you are fine?

 

If a person diagnosed with Celiac disease eats gluten, they could harm the baby. 

 

 

This is for someone with Celiac disease:

If you have no health issues, there is no reason for a family member to assume gluten can harm your baby and If presented as you may kill your baby is being a bit harsh...imo.

 

Does this family member have Celiac or NCGS?  Do you have any health issues other than digestive?  Perhaps this person thinks you are dismissing symptoms of Celiac other than digestive?

 

If this family member has Celiac Disease and is a first degree relative, perhaps have your OB order a Celiac Antibody Panel...if you haven't already had one as ALL first degree relatives should be tested...regardless of pregnancy.

The person is an inlaw and yes they have a sensitivity. i was feeling sick after eating 8 or 9 months ago( found out pregnant and lost baby) symptoms went away. ate gluten and no problem. and again am pregnant and anything i eat makes me kind of sick,. so i am almost %100 sure that its hormones and not gluten. This tension and stress is not good on the baby.. i dont know how to deal with this. oh and i as well have a health issue that (they) also think has to do with gluten but talked to my doctor and they said it doesnt

Everyone feels sick when pregnant.  Its hard for you to prove something that is ridiculous.  It would be like me saying you shouldn't eat apples while pregnant and asking you to prove you it is OK.  There is no research because its not an issue.

 

I would just ignore her.  Say that your doctor says you are fine. It really isn't something you should worry about.  As it is your husband's relative, tell him to talk with them and tell them to stop stressing you out.  This is the time he needs to protect his wife and baby.

Wow! Thats crazy! I feel the same way! I feel they need to prove to you that you shouldn't eat it. I'm sure your Dr. Gave you a good diet to go on being preggers. Show them that or look on line for a good pregnancy diet print it off and show it to them. How frustrating for you! Ohh and Congrats!!

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
