Well, how did that happen? Do most people just wake up one day and say, it sounds like a good day to start writing a blog? I’ve been thinking about this since I got diagnosed back in 2013. It’s been there and had several iterations before you found me here. This baby, though? He, she, it, we don’t know yet — has changed everything. It’s been one thing when the celiac impacts you — simply me. It became another thing when my at-the-time boyfriend got diagnosed 2 months later. But it was us. It was us against gluten.
But now… I’ve been given 8 months to think about all the things out of my control with a little one on the way. It’s our first and while I’m a nurse by trade — raising a baby is not on the list of things covered in nursing school. Raising a baby that has a high propensity for celiac disease and not willing to bring gluten in the house to find out… is definitely not a course in nursing school.
