My first child
At the time my first child was born I had been on the diet for many years. After coming off "the pill" I conceived with 1 month which surprised both of us!
However, I suffered badly with morning sickness throughout the whole 9 months of pregnancy, being taken into hospital with hyperemesis gravidarum long before my daughter was born.
While I was still at work, I lost so much weight that my engagement ring fell off my finger, never to be found again.
My daughter was a healthy 7 and a half pounds when she was born and I was at last able to keep food down again.
Following advice from my doctor, it was suggested that I was tested for celiac again. The tests indicated that my villi were "normal" and that I could go back to eating a gluten full diet. I was happy to try this and started eating bread, cakes etc with gusto.
I soon began to feel very ill and reluctantly put myself back on the gluten free diet. However, even this short foray off the diet was enough to play havoc with my body.
