I was curious about how many of you ladies out there struggle with food allergies/intolerances and how you handle this in relation to TTC. I have Crohn’s disease and as a result of that I try to avoid gluten and I’m also allergic to dairy products (allergic, not lactose intolerant). Unfortunately I’m not very good at sticking to this and often slip up on my gluten and dairy free diet. After seeing Mrs.Charpentier’s post about her allergic reaction and early AF I started to really think about how my diet will impact TTC. I have a cousin that has never been able to carry a child to full term and I’ve always wondered if she’s undiagnosed Celiac (it runs in my family). I know I’m going to get mixed responses but I’ve done my homework on autoimmunity and diet based on my own issues and am curious about what other people think. I know that after this weekend I’m commited to getting the crap out of my diet again so I have a better chance at a sticky baby. I’d love to hear your thoughts/stories/experiences.
