Hi everyone

I am so excited that everyone is doing good while pregnant.  My daughter just found out that she is pregnant and we are both really scared.  Her first dr. appt is sept. and hopefully the dr will know what to do with a pku patient.  She is already in touch with her nutrionist and has had the first blood work done.  We don't know the results yet but her tyronsine is low so she will have to start supplements.  She is getting her levels down and tells me she's fine, so hopefully everything will be ok.  First pregnancy's are scary enough without the added stress.  Will keep in touch and if you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to share.

How exciting for you batwoman, and good luck to all!
