I got my Zofran directly from Glaxo-smith Kline, and it wasn't gluten free - at least not when I got it in late 2008 and early 2009. I've heard that it depends on where it was manufactured. Too risky for me b/c I was reacting to it.

This time I took the liquid orally, or I took it through my PICC line.

I know how you felt with the loyalty thing with work. I am stressed about the same thing, but SOOOO sick all day every day. Today i finally called out...and the guilt is eating me up on top of throwing up everything i've tried to put down today. Stupid ethical conscience.

While perusing the site, I saw the "I'm Miserable" post under pregnancy and I had a feeling it was regarding morning sickness. I have one child, and she's 7, but I still remember the awful pregnancy I had. I now realize that it's very common for undiagnosed celiac's to be very ill throughout the pregnancy. I was hoping for the other women on this board that following a gluten free diet would ease up the symptoms. I pray that you are like most women and in a couple of weeks the symptoms will go away.

The hardest thing for me about my pregnancy is that I was hanging on the promise of feeling better by the second trimester. Truth is I was nauseated the entire time. It took me awhile but I learned to manage it. I ate CONSTANTLY. I started out underweight so the doctor wasn't concerned with my weight gain, until the end. I think I was still underweight at 20 weeks, and then I went on to gain 40 pounds in the last 20 weeks. But eating eased my symptoms. There was a Thai restaurant by my work that made a great ginger soup. I went there every day for lunch. Finally when my belly started popping out that realized why I was eating the soup every day. They didn't even take my order...just brought me my soup.

I don't know if this is still recommended but I took Unisom and B6 in combination and it really helped with the nausea and helped me sleep. (This was okayed by my gyno). Also for the very worst months when I couldn't keep anything down I took Zofran.

Toward the end of the pregnancy I let myself drink a tea every day (with caffeine) For some reason that always settled my symptoms.

I don't know if you're working or if you have other kids, but my plan was to stay home after we had a baby. I don't know why I continued to work so hard fighting the nausea every day, when I wasn't even going back. I just felt too loyal I guess. Anyhow, finally about 2 months before my daughter was born I quit working and I just felt so much better. I think the stress was really adding to the nausea. If you can at all set up a world where all you have to do is grow that little baby, which is a HUGE job, then do it. Don't feel guilty.

If you need to send my a private message you are welcome. I will try and encourage you in any way I can. My best friend had a baby 9 months before I got pregnant and she was sick the whole time too. I called her every day (didn't even think that she must be exhausted with a new baby) but she talked me through so much. Sometimes just having someone say, "I understand...you can do this" makes a huge difference.

Hang in there. IF you already have kids you know it's so worth it. YOU CAN DO IT! Rest, eat, ask for help, give yourself a break!

Good luck!!!

    • Dr. Alessio Fasano from the University of Maryland's Celiac Research Center published a paper in Clinical and Developmental Immunology last month. It focused on a new drug developed by Dr. Fasano that has shown promising results in both animal and human trials. But is this the 'magic pill' that will cure celiac disease and gluten sensitivity? Let's take a look. View the full article
    • Thanks for this, ironictruth. I personally believe that should my dx be accurate, it's not recent; my complaints are pretty consistent and go back years. But the logistics of analysis and reporting methods are always at play and you've raised some great points that are helping me think through this a bit more. Regarding #4, I've been reading that IELs are typically found more towards the base of the villi and thin out towards the top, and that celiac can affect this distribution by making it look more uniform (because of more IELs present at the tip than usual).  What you say about blunting affecting that is interesting, but the Marsh classifications include both degree of atrophy/blunting and the IEL counts, no? So it must be possible to still gather info on IELs even when villi are blunted. I will have another endoscopy at some point to assess a change following the gluten-free diet, I think what I'll do it try and get the same blood work done that was initially positive somewhere along the line as well. If that all comes down, then I think I'll feel a little more certain that I'm in the right place diagnosis-wise.
    • Thank you guys! I am afraid to do the gluten challenge because eating gluten makes me bed ridden sick. I've read on different sites on how much you need to consume for 'X' amount of time, but is it really necessary to suffer that long? I want to make sure that I have plenty of time to consume gluten before going back to the doctor to be retested, though. It just seems like torture is all. I appreciate all of the support already! Thank you so much for the replys!

    • Exactly!  It talks about moderation in meat consumption.  It never says we all need to go vegan.
