Hey,
Im Meaghan, 18, and have CPKU. I am the same way as your husband. I am the only one ever in my family tree to have PKU. My mother is “normal” and ate all the foods she normally would while she was pregnant with me and I turned out great. The only deterement that would be done was if you had PKU and were pregnant and you didnt stay on the diet. since that is not the case you have nothing to worry about. If you want to see if your child can even possibly have PKU there is a blood test that you could take to see if you hve the gene. Your husband and you would have to getblood takena nd they compare your genes to his and they will let you know if it is possible.
