Placenta Previa

3 posts in this topic

I have been diagnosed with celiac disease for almost one year now. My husband and I are pregnant with our second child. I'm 22 weeks along. I just found out that I have placenta previa and was ordered to be on both pelvic rest and moderate bed rest. I'm just wondering if any other celiac mamas have had to go through this as well. It's such a rare condition and there is little research, but I did find a scholarly article that suggested a link between the two.

Congratulations!  So excited for you.  

I would not worry.  (I know, easier said than done.).  The good news is that you have been gluten free for a year.  I would imagine that avoiding gluten at all costs is critical.  Stick with whole foods and I personally would not eat out!  

My cousin had placenta Previa.  She was able to carry until full term.  There was a lttle tearing when she went into labor, so she had a C-Section.  She is gluten free now, but was not at the time of her pregnancy.  We do not know if  she has celiac disease, as she went gluten free prior to getting tested.  There is no way she'll ever consider a challenge.  I've seen her belching and looking six months pregnant after a glutening.  Not to mention brain fog, abdominal upset, etc.  So, we at least know gluten gets to her.  

My OB  though I had it too.  But turns out it was actually a strangulated fibroid tumor.  This happened around week 23.  Yeah, the rest of my pregnancy was spend in and out of the hospital with uterine contractions.  I was in bed the rest of the time. The tumor grew so large that my baby was in an inverse position and every kick was torture.  Everyone came to see the pregnant tumor lady at the hospital.   But she was well worth it.   My celiac disease diagnosis was a few years ago.  Anemia was my main symptom (has been since they started recording it at 16).    I am pretty sure I had it while I was pregnant, but it worked out.  Took us over a decade to get pregnant too and nothing was even wrong with us, but i bet it was celiac disease.  

I recall my hubby packing me a lunch in a cooler next to my bed.  It was the same lunch every  day!  😳If your hubby is not good in the kictchen, ask for help, but train them to keep you safe from gluten.  If help is offered, take it!  People can shop for you and clean.  When they offer, they mean it!  

Do you have thyroid issues?  Make sure that is monitored closely by your OB if that is the case.  Make sure all meds and supplements are gluten free.  I would be extra safe and stick with certified gluten-free.  Pack your hospital bag with gluten-free snacks.  Talk to the hospital dietitian and confirm that they can feed your properly.  

Try not to worry.  Get some books, watch TV, and enjoy your older child and hubby.

    • I think that's the answer. You can see plenty of others experiencing the same: My own experience is that my neuro symptoms took longer to go. The exception to this would be brain fog which happily lifted pretty quickly. I get occasional POTS on standing or a kind of sensation from in my head sometimes which is really difficult to describe which I think may relate to cross contamination but I don't neccesarily get any GI. I think its those symptoms which are maybe last to go, first to show...
    • There are some nutritional issues to watch out for in a vegan diet.  Personally I don't think it's great idea when the person has a chronic digestive disease that is responsible for causing mal-absorption of nutrients.  Vegan in a celiac seems kind of like pouring gas on a fire.  The vegan diet makes getting some important nutrients harder, and celiac disease does the same thing.  I don't know of any studies on it, but my guess is a vegan celiac may take longer to recover their health.  And since it can take 5 years or more to recover from celiac damage, it seems to me that is not a good thing. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/vegetarian-diet/art-20046446?pg=2
    • What language are they speaking in the video? Is there a version with subtitles? 
    • So, if I were to make this with white sugar, how much would you recommend?  Can you substitute the almond butter from peanut butter? what cereal do you recommend? A regular style that would be at a standard grocery store I mean, not something I'd have to order  I'm lazy like that.  Sorry to massacre your recipe. Wish you were in NC and my neighbor so I could just buy your stuff.
    • There was a thread on here some time ago from someone struggling to be gluten free on a vegan diet that got some good responses from vegan celiacs. Maybe worth a search, this forum has had so many members over the years who have been through similar.
