Be very careful to consult your doctor. As a CPKU female it is very importnat to keep you levels under control well before “getting pregnant”.
As the father of four young children of which one (my 3 year old) has CPKU, I followed up on this since my wife and I were going to have another baby and we wanted to know what the fourth child would face if born a girl with CPKU.
My wife and I are both carriers and thus we had a 25% chance of having another baby with CPKU – fortunately we had our fourth child (now 7 months old) and HE did not have PKU – unfortunately HE was not a girl – but we love him anyway
