God's hands are the perfect place to place your fears. Congrats, momma! This is great news. So many of my friends are pregnant right now, in fact, my best friend just found out she's having twins. A lot of blessings on the way!

Congrats! I'm right about where you are. We had an ultrasound last Friday based on my climbing hcg levels (doc said at 5000 they should be able to see heartbeat, I was over 4000 2 days prior to ultrasound) but it was too early to see a heartbeat. We go this Friday to hopefully see a heartbeat. It's very exciting and like Looking for Answers said I know tons of women that are pregnant right now. Baby fever is in the air!

I'm so sorry Rachel, I really hope you aren't having a miscarriage, but i will be praying for you either way.

I had a miscarriage last year and it was really hard. Let me know how you are doing. ~Sometimes life is really hard to understand - it's hard to see what God has planned in it all. I still have a hard time with it at times.

I'm sure it must be hard for you tonight... having to wait for the test results. I'll definitely be praying for you tonight.

~Sarah

It is good you have such a loving hubby. Hang onto each other right now. You two will get through this, even though it seems impossible right now.

Rachel, people will try to be comforting, but will say things to you like "maybe it wasn't meant to be" and "you're young, you can have another"...they mean well, they are trying so hard to say what's right to make you feel better ....(it only made me feel worse). No one "gets it" unless they live it. Truth is, THIS baby is important to you and you will need to grieve the loss. Take time to heal, rest up and take good care of each other.

I am so so sorry for your loss. My sympathy to your hubby as well. It is hard, I know.

You have strong faith, I can tell. :) That's a very good thing.

I'm so sorry. I have had 4 miscarriages and each one was heart wrenching. I put it in Gods hands though and it helped me handle it. Hug that husband tight :)

    • Love reading this story as it is rare (I think) to find someone else with the swallowing issues!  Hate that this is your experience however!   My daughter also has the swallowing issues and it got so severe (we had no idea about Celiac) that she had to do intensive therapy to learn how to swallow again.  It got better but never resolved.  Once she went gluten-free it got way better though a recent exposure to oats caused it to flare up again.  Do you mind me asking - Has your swallowing issues 100% resolved being gluten-free?  Does it ever actually go away and stay away or will it always pop up from time to time?
    • I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day.  The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal.  Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer.   I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell.  Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.
    • REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people.  4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you.   https://animefest.org/ ^Convention info.
    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
