As some of you may know, Anna was diagnosed with Celiac Disease on February 1st after months of stomach issues and skin problems. For those of you who are unfamiliar with CD, it is an auto-immune disease where her body can not tolerate gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley). Instead of processing it, the body turns on itself and destroys the villi in her intestines. So, to be healthy and to keep her intestines running smoothly and absorbing nutrients, she must never eat wheat again (breads, cereals, pastas, and most processed food contain gluten). This has obviously been a big change in her life and in our home. Since going on the diet, Anna has had all of her horrible symptoms go away, and has had an increase in energy. She is quite happy on her gluten free diet (thank goodness!). We are so grateful to have answers finally!
Getting closer to meeting our new little one. Here I am at 32 weeks.
This is me, obviously bigger, at 34 weeks.
