Pregnancy After Bad Experience (w/ Celiac)

Hello everyone! I am new to the forrum and have a few questions.... I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 5 years ago (when I was 18). My husband and I would like to get pregnant in the near future. This is a major step for me b/c we had a VERY bad experience with preggos about 2 years ago. I was on BC pills at the time and was completely surprised. I tested neg until I was 7 wks along and at that time I couldn't keep ANYTHING down. Everyone told me that was normal and would pass in a few weeks.....

It didn't. It only got owrse. They prescribed me Phenergan and B12 but it didn't help at all. I literally couldn't get out of bed. I ended up hospitalized at 4 1/2 months with a feeding tube, IV electrolites, an array of meds (all preggo safe) and was there almost 2 months. One night I started crashing and the next morning we found that I had lost the baby. It was coded a still birth and it took me several months to regain my strength again.

Basically, I'm very scared. I'm scared of getting sick like that again. We just recently had a misscaraige (about 4wks along) and I had an IUD (non-hormonal). That is out now, lol, obviously.....

OK... Sorry about the long winded post. I'm just nervous and hoping to find some info. Thanks!

Hi Melinda,

Having a baby is always a leap of faith. We never know what the outcome will be. Even if we did everything PERFECTLY things can still go wrong. And some women who do everything WRONG have perfectly healthy babies.

My suggestion would be to make sure you are 100% gluten free for a good 6 months to a year BEFORE you get pregnant. During that time eat the healthiest diet you can and take supplements to make sure your body is nutritionally ready to carry a baby to term.

You can get tests to find out any deficiencies you might have and really mega dose on those. Make sure a good well rounded multi and REALLY make sure that your iron is good.

Also get your Thyroid checked. If it isnt working right that can affect your ability to carry to term.

I wish you strength and courage. :)

    • There seems to be a new auto word change that changes all instances of  "gluten-free" to gluten-free in case it does it to this post G F without a space gets changed to gluten-free. I was trying to reference a brand name and it kept on changing it to this and messing me up and drove my OCD mad. If your here and do not know what G F means then you probably do not belong here.
    • ....OK ADMIN just delete this one just another slap in the face article. " After demand from the neighborhood, they will soon add gluten-free options, though these crepes will be prepared on the same griddle, so they're intended for those with mild celiac disease or those who just prefer to eat gluten-free. " 

      Sorry Numskull but "mild celiac" FFS there is no such thing, bloody residue smaller then crumbs and you get months of heighten antibodies an damage. This is very misleading and can lead to people newly diagnosed hurting themselves. NOW if you have no problem with gluten free oats, you can make a crepe like batter very easy, it is a bit fluffier like a hybrid between pancakes and crepes but try this one.
      I used to use gluten-free Harvest oat flour to make these but as I have adverse reactions to any kind of oats I gave this up. 50g Oat Flour
      1/4 tsp Salt
      1/2 tsp Cinnamon
      1 tbsp Maple syrup
      1/2 cup water
      2 tbsp applesauce
      Mix all ingredients togehter then let sit for 10mins for the it to thicken up before pouring in the pan. I used to cook them like pancakes but can be used for crepes due to the texture.
    • I’m so sorry you feel you must steal, that must be awful. The only thing I might consider is that it can become a habit, especially the self-justification part. Not that I'm recommending it right now for you , but with a ketogenic diet, the body goes into ketosis, not ketoacidosis, which is something that people with Type I diabetes can go into: in addition to their bodies burning fat, they also have insanely high levels of glucose in their blood. There’s no risk of ketoacidosis on a ketogenic diet, and in fact in the old days before insulin, one of the remedies was a ketogenic diet. It’s still often used for seizures as well. Plumbago
    • Hi Mary Anne, They take the skin biopsy from adjacent to a "lesion".  There are many possible symptoms of celiac disease.  DH is the skin rash symptom of celiac disease. It can take a year for itching to go away from what I've read.  Reducing iodine intake during symptoms may help reduce their duration.  You have to be gluten-free for symptoms to subside as DH is an immune reaction caused by celiac disease. A good place top start looking for knowledgable doctors is in a local support group.
