Pregnant And Un-diagnosed

1 post in this topic

Hi, I'm pregnant- 5 1/2 months. I am lactose intolerant and was dairy free for about a year and then started having similar symptoms this past Jan. I was told by a few people that I may have problems w/ wheat so I stopped eating wheat and gluten and felt 100 % better. I've since learned a lot about celiac disease and am sure I have it. At this point I'm trying to get tested thru Medicaid.

So, I was relatively gluten free for about 2 months before I conceived. And I feel great as long as I don't eat gluten. I'm taking gluten-free prenatals and was for 7 mos prior to conceiving. Would this have helped? I'm not gaining much weight, tho I was losing weight like crazy- 25 lbs before I conceived after going gluten-free. I'm afraid that the baby may not be getting all the nutrients she/ he needs. And I feel like it's effecting my ability to bond w/ this baby because I'm afraid of miscarrying.

What are some safe tests that I can take during pg to find out for sure? I've already taken a blood test which was negative since I had been gluten-free for 5 mos prior.
