I found some interesting research regarding Celiac Disease and pregnancy and I wanted to share it with others. My son was induced at 36.5 weeks because I no longer had any amniotic fluid. When he was born we discovered that my placenta had failed and he had IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction) weighing only 4 lbs 11.5 oz. We were blessed because he was fully developed so other than some extra days in the hospital everything was fine. When I became pregnant with my daughter I asked what was found in the pathology report that was done on my placenta. They didn't find anything in the report and had no idea why my placenta had failed. I figured it was a fluke so I made sure I was getting 80 g of protein daily and my daughter was born at 37.5 weeks weighing 6 lbs 14.9 oz, much better. The thought had crossed my mind before to see if there was a correlation with CD and placental failure and when I did a search yesterday I found a lot.
It seems women with CD that are not following a gluten free diet have an increased chance of IUGR, placental failure, and pregnancy loss. Here are a couple articles and there's a lot more out there if you're interested.
I've never been diagnosed with CD but this finally gives me an answer as to why my placenta failed with my son.
