Hi there. Well, I've been a "lurker" for about 3 yrs. now and I have just decided to finally log into and join.

I am 8 wks. preggie with my 3rd. This is my first preg. since diagnosed with celiac disease. I am due Aug. 20th. I am in the very tired stage and for the last week and a half, I had felt queezy all day. I thought to try something. I haven't taken my pre natal vits. for 2 days now and all the nausea is gone. They were GNC gluten-free vits. Does anyone have another they reccomend? I don't want to buy any off the internet, so is there one in a store or pharmacy? How about walmart brand? I hate being off them, but I feel much better.

Also, what kinds of menues or dishes do you eat now that your preg? Before, I would not be so gluten-free consious. But now, I'm paranoid that I will have something with gluten in it. Can anyone give me some ideas. Right now I can't get enough salt!!!! I love freetos!!!

Thanks for any advise that comes my way. Good luck to all and bye for now!

I craved salt also when I was pregnant. The OBGYN told me that as long as my blood pressure was okay not to worry about it. Check with yours and hopefully he will say the same.

Try some b-complex for the nausea and fatigue. They worked wonders for me with my four pregancies (3 live births).

I know that Perrigo labs are gluten free. They are distributed as store brands through Kroger, Wal-mart, and Target that I know of. Their logo looks like a rounded rectangle with a comma hook off the right side. Since I know that their lab is gluten-free, those are the only OTC meds that we use around here.

Hi deener

Glad to have you here.

I do know that when my daughter was pg, the prenatal vit made her sick all the time. So the doc told her to try flintstones. ;)

Check and make sure they are gluten-free first of course :)

Thank you ladies :D I will definately be on the lookout. I am also waiting for my GI DR. to call me back with a list of perscription. But it would be great if I could get some that aren't so exspensive!!

Bye for now :P

    • Just for your information - Celiac disease is not a "gluten allergy".  
    • Hello! Not sure if this has been posted before, as I did not see it. But as you all know a lot of us have problems with getting enough nutrients and even those like me that don't, its also just as important.  *Tangent* I think as a society, not just America but in the UK as I noticed while living there and I am sure other territories as well, we seem to ignore one of the biggest vitamins of all - WATER. 55-65% of our body is made up of this crazy vitamin. Not only does it help in our most crucial bodily functions, but it also aids in the building of our cells. Specifically those with celiacs, it is vital in the aiding of fixing the problems we have with not getting enough nutrients. After removing gluten from our diets, our bodies need to work SO hard to get itself back to as normal composition as possible. Water helps build our cells back up, carries nutrients, brings oxygen to our brains, and so so much more. I just want everyone to keep this in mind whilst continuing their journey through this confusing disease.  Please please, I urge you to drink your 64 oz of water a day!
    • Atkins is bad for your body, ketosis for the most part is fine (depends on your body). People who intake too much fat while trying to go through ketosis are at risk for stones. I think your route is the best though to be honest. Sweet potatoes and some antioxidant enriched fruits are a good source of carbohydrates while having a low-carb diet. 
    • Hi all.  I'm new to this forum and so happy to be able to ask questions.  I'm a makeup hound and realize I will need to start replacing.  I'm acquiring Arbonne products and really like what I'm using.  I have tons of lipstick and, obviously, need to make some changes quickly.  DLoes anyone know which of the higher end department store brands are safe.  I've been an avid Lancome, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique person, but I am fearful to use anything but my Bite lipstick now.  Would appreciate your wisdom.    
    • Growing up my Dad was a competitive bodybuilder.  He would go into ketosis before competitions.  He knew because he used pee strips.  I thought ketosis was hard on a person, as in bad for your body. Personal update:  I have been grain free for a few days now and have almost completely avoided brain fog.  I still eat sweet potatoes so I am getting enough carbs and sleeping well.  I weigh the same and I am happy! Friday is my colonoscopy and endoscopy to see how I am doing now at the 1 year mark.  I also have eosinaphalic esophagitis, hiatal hernia and GERD.
