Prego

So I've been prego before, only for a few weeks. This time I'm a month in.

But...I took one of my L-glutamine pills to help heal my intestines and had a bad reaction. I had avoided taking them for a few days but tried one today :P

and this is what happened:

hot/cold flashes

nausea

dizziness

sweats

fainted

migraine

freezing cold hand (blue/white)

SO...conclusion, when it says "Consult a doctor if pregnant.." I'M GOING TO DO IT!

Sometimes (shakes head) I just slap myself.

I will be getting a doctor soon.

Yeah when taking medicine ask the doctor. Also if you don't have one yet you can ask the pharmacy they can help to.

Congrats! Yes, a doctor makes sense. I'd skip taking anything but prescribed prenatal vitamins and any medications you and your doctor decide are absolutely essential if I were pregnant.

So I had posted a reply about L-glutamine. But looks like that was erased by the website wardens. But L glutamine is a supplement perscribed by my doctor. It's not to be taken while pregnant, I had a bad reaction. I'll try and "keep it simple" for the wardens.

Well the pregnancy test said I was still prego, but I've had three gluten episodes in a row since my fiancee brought oatmeal into the house. My belly has been way swollen and painful. I'd like to feel better. But first someone is getting a talking to. lol

Oatmeal that isn't steal rolled is never allowed in the house. Too much dust. So unfortunatly I don't think the babay will survive, again. :S

You said in your first post you would be getting a doctor soon. I hope you have seen one by now. If you don't have insurance get to a clinic and if you are low income check and see if you are eligible for Medicaid if you are in the US.

I'm so sorry to hear that. :( I hope you don't lose your baby because of gluten. This disease is so miserable sometimes... Sounds like you need a complete ban on oatmeal, not just steel-cut! Some people with celiac (maybe 10%?) have a full gluten reaction to oats.

Yeah! That's what happens. On the bright side, when they are 12 and you are " the meanest mom evah!" you can remind them of what they did to your cute figure. :)

Seriously, a lot of times it will go back into place. Glad the baby is doing good.

Yikes it's almost time! Now nine months prego and the day is literally around the corner!

I do have some concerns, I've had a couple cross contaminations with gluten (darn potholder was sitting on top of the steamed vegetables) you can probably guess that wasn't fun last night.

My question is, since celiac disease does indeed throw off my hormone balance each epsidoe that I have (usually delaying my period), would it throw off the hormons necessary to trigger the beginning of labor?

I do believe baby is getting a steady supply of nutrition from my stores of fat and shouldn't be delayed in his growth if I have a gluten episode, but...will he be able to come out on time if my hormones aren't signaling the time for labor is due?

More of a test study question than something people could easily answer I'm sure, but that's kinda on my mind.

I think it is unlikely that these particular hormones will be thrown off. It's a combination of a number hormones, including ones that baby and placenta produces.

That's good to hear, I'm overdue though but it is my first one. I'm told that it's pretty typical for the first. Although I am trying to naturally induce with several different methods that the midwife has suggested and I've found on a pregnancy website that's pretty legite. I think I just need to practice patients with this one and let the good Lord pop him out when he's ready lol It's so hard to to experiement or theorize what could be going on, I'm kinda like that with everything it seems. Just a bit of a scientist in the blood. ;)

I am thinking that the babe has arrived, d/t no postings in a while...everyone needs to remember that 9 months and 10 days is a MEAN. If your mom ran late, so might you, and the reverse.

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
