I've been pregnant and vegan before but I just went gluten-free a few months ago, and I just found out today that I'm pregnant! Anyone else pull of staying gluten-free through pregnancy?
vegan, gluten-free, and pregnant?
Congrats lady! I was gluten-free-soy-free-vegan for a few months while breastfeeding, so it certainly can be done! A raw diet is 'accidentally' gluten-free and there are plenty of raw pregnancy stories (not that I'm advocating a raw pregnancy mind you).
Do you have specific questions? Good luck!
Well I guess I'd be curious to know if I'm going to end up craving wheat products, and/or the perpetual question of how to combat well-meaning concern of relatives. I'm already going to be dealing with a lot of "you can't be pregnant and vegan" sentiments but being gluten free is going to set off a whole firestorm of questions. It's easy to point people to the position statement of the American Dietetic Association to show that a vegan diet is healthy during pregnancy, but are there any similar resources about being gluten free?
