its really good for me to hear about preggos whove had kids while pku. i really want kids someday, it won’t be soon but i am 25 now and when i was 15 the doc explained it all to me, like being on low levels before conceiving and stuff but what i wondered most about is, can we breastfeed?
like i said it wont be an issue anytime soon but i am curious. the doc said at the time yeah i think but that was 10yrs ago i can’t remember…..
its nice to know it’s possible, hard but possible…
