Great news, Stormi - so happy to hear everything is ok :)
Good to hear you liked your midwife, Jill. We are using the same doula from DD's birth so we are lucky to already have that relationship. I LOL at the non stop talking doula you met...that could be a bit much, I agree!
Cathy, that sounds weird to be having gluten symptoms with food you are used to..definitely could be pregnancy related. Do you have celiac disease? I have never gone to be tested (not a big fan of endoscopies ;) ) Congrats on an almost completely clean and organized home!! We hope to be that way by Tuesday....
The doctor that I was seeing thought I did, but because I went off gluten, its harder to tell unless your having symptoms and I did not want to go back on it.
THere has been some around the web lately about "cross-reactivity" and gluten, where the body reacts to other foods as if they were gluten. http://www.thepaleomom.com/2012/10/gluten-cross-reactivity-how-your-body-can-still-think-youre-eating-gluten-even-after-giving-it-up.html
I'm having major GI probs, but that's because i ate gluten. It have got to get myself off this stuff again!
Ugh. I have been eating this pecan rice bread all week. It's been easier since DH is on Spring break and maybe my body thinks I'm eating it again. :( It's not something that I haven't been eating on a regular basis though. I guess I need to go more paleo. Good thing the weather is warming up and there will be lots of fresh local produce to eat again.
It was horrible too last night I had major cramps, bloating and gas all night. Not conducive to a good night's sleep.
