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.

    • Hi I was wondering if anyone knew if red rose tea bags were gluten free? I have been drinking this tea for years now and the past few weeks I have not been able to drink it. I get cramps in my lower abdomen and this morning I got nauseated. I was wondering if this is something to do with the tea?
    • @LouiseBea Welcome!  Has celiac disease (dermatitis herpetiformis, skin version) been ruled out?  DH treatment requires a life-long gluten free diet.  
    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
