Celiac disease: It certainly can, as celiac disease can cause significant illness including malabsorption issues. It is necessary to obtain physicians that can treat the celiac disease as any pregnancy will probably be a high risk pregnancy if the celiac disease is not well controlled.
Dr. Jack Mutnick
Allergy and Immunology 17 years experience
Celiac: There is no documentation showing problems with celiac disease in pregnancy. Keep the gluten free diet and consider meeting with a dietitian to come up with the best diet during your pregnancy.

Can be minimal: If avoid gluten then your symptoms should be minimal and you can absorb all the nutrients you need by eating a well balanced diet. If you are finding it hard to eat a gluten-free diet, try looking at some cookbooks from southeast asia, such as south india or thailand as these are regions that eat a rice based diet.

Pregnancy loss: Untreated celiac disease, even when subclinical, has been associated with pregnancy loss, menstrual disorders, and infertility. Treatment of celiac disease appears to prevent these problems.
