I'm nearly 8 weeks pregnant with my first baby and I'm looking for advice. To me, pregnancy feels exactly like I've eaten gluten all the time. Is this normal? If anything I'm being more careful. Taking less calculated risks. By which I mean not eating as many things without any advice at all I.e. no 'may contain' warning or gluten free labelling, but no gluten in the ingredients.
Has anyone else been pregnant and felt glutened the whole time?
I haven't changed my diet much apart from to cut out some pregnancy no nos.
I'm genuinely perplexed.
I know pregnancy slows down your digestion. Could this be what is causing my gluten like symptoms?
