My daughter has been gluten intolerant for years (in fact, her childhood IBS was probably linked to this). A sniff of wheat, and she has terrible stomach cramps - so pasta, bread, biscuits etc have been off the menu for years. But since she's been pregnant she has discovered that her intolerance has disappeared! (hence currently stuffing herself with pasta etc etc).
Questions for Gransnetters:
* how can such a well-established intolerance just disappear on pregnancy?
* might it have gone for good, or is it likely to return after the birth?
* given that she intends to breastfeed, how long after the birth should she wait to test her reaction to wheat again?
