Can Gluten Cause Problems With Celiac Pregnancy

Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I'm an atypical celiac who was diagnosed almost a year ago (after 5+years of thinking I was just allergic to wheat). My 2 yo son and brother have recently been diagnosed as well.

A restaurant mixed up my order a few days ago and I was sick for 24 hours, though not with diarrhea. I think it's ok, since I was a gluten-eating celiac my first pregnancy and everything turned out ok (other than his baby tooth enamel which is a bit weak), I just have a tendency to worry during pregnancy...

As an atypical celiac, diarrhea and weightloss are not major problems for me, I tend to gain weight and get constipated more often. My other symptoms are the most potent, (depression, anxiety, joint pain, thyroid trouble) perhaps because I don't get the gluten right out of my system.

Odd thing about this pregnancy, is my body is less forgiving of me, my celiac symptoms are much more pronounced, I'm much more sensitive, and my food allergies are enough to drive me nuts. My biggest goal is to avoid triggering my immune system as much as possible, but it seems to be on high alert. Just the opposite of my first pregnancy.

I think you and your baby should be fine. My G.I. dr. told me that I should not eat out until the baby comes. And that I should get my blood levels checked monthly for deficinces. My insurance would not pay for that so I never did the baby seems to be growing fine anyways. But I do try not to eat out. Of course it is hard and I do eat out at places that have a gluten-free menu. Congratulations by the way! I hope you start to feel better.

KayJay...is that your greyhound I have the exact same one. My Culver is male..and 10 years old in July. Anyway I am about to try to conceive my 2nd ...my daughter is going to be 5 and I got diagnosed last year with Celiac. I am looking for Folic acid and Calcium supplements...I have mild osteopenia any suggestions. As for symptoms I find that Milk products around my menstrual cycle especially will cause similar symptoms to gluten oopses. Good luck.

Virginia :)

    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
    • It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it.  With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative.  But in looking at previous blood tests-she had a cbc run about a year ago that showed that her MCV was high and there was no mention of it.  Makes me wonder if that along with a deficiency in her vitamin D levels can be attributed to celiac.    On a side note--she has been experiencing lots of leg pain-to the point where she is sometimes in tears because they hurt so much!  She had her endocrinologist appointment yesterday and mentioned that and he didn't think that this could be attributed to the celiac.  Is that true?  As I stated before she is having the biopsy this Tuesday but I think she is hoping that this is a symptom of the celiac so that it will resolve going gluten-free.  Any thoughts?
    • I eat oatmeal and granola made with certified gluten free oats. I have to be careful of those that are labeled just gluten free or organic oats on the label as I have had adverse reactions. I also eat Rice and Corn Chex.  If I am traveling, I can usually find them in grocery stores even in small towns. Took Chex cereal with me when I had to evacuate for hurricane.
