My own whine

So, as many of you know, I stopped (or at least greatly slowed ;-) eating gluten in order to get PG. I guess I probably have Celiac's Disease, considering how big of an effect it had on my fertility.
Well my whine is . . . I MISS BREAD. SOOOOOO MUCH.
And while TTCing I would occasionally cheat and let myself binge on bread once every couple weeks or so, but I have been doing more and more research and apparently for people that have Celiac's Disease, not sticking to a gluten free diet when you are PG can increase your risk of m/c, cause IUGR, and low birthweight. So now I feel like I can't cheat at all without risking having a m/c or in some other way hurting the baby.
There are a TON of good GF breads out there but not that are vegan as well. I found a millet bread that is decent but all the GF vegan bread stuff just does not sound appealing AT ALL right now in the middle of m/s food aversions.
Like I REALLY REALLY want a tofu pup (vegan hot dog :-) right now, with ketchup and mustard and the whole bit, but I want it on a REAL BUN. WHHHIIIIIINNNNEEEE.
I know there is no solution here. I could eat non-vegan stuff if I want to, and who knows, maybe I will--but I haven't (willingly knowingly) eaten non-vegan stuff in so long. The idea of eating bread with eggs in it just . . . well, is probably enough to make me vomit because it wouldn't take much at this point. SIGH.
Maybe I could make crepes with buckwheat and eat my tofu pup with that--Hmmm, that is a thought.
I just feel like here I am on bedrest, I feel like there is nothing I can eat and even less that I WANT to eat, I can't drink, I can't have sex, I can't do ANYTHING. I'm just complaining, I know there's no solution, I just wanted to complain a bit--thanks for listening anyone that made it through this patheticness.
