Anywho My husband and I are finally going to be moving soon and will be located near a pku clinic YEAY!! But anywho I am starting the maternal diet before we concieve and Im just wondering if there is anyone out there who would be willing to help me and possibly give me advice about things. I have a daughter who is normal so I have done this before but if I have the support of those who know what I am going through that would be great! thanks Maria

    Gosh I am also very sorry about your baby boy. I am 15 weeks along in pregnancy so have just recently gone through the whole preconception thing. I would be only too happy to help. Add me as a friend and message me with any Qs or anything. Having done it before you may even be able to help me too!! x x x

    I am very sorry to hear about your son. I think you and I could be good friends as I am also starting a maternal diet prior to conceiving. I have a blog quite similar to yours and I have had a lot of helpful comments posted, you should check it out! Becky (who posted here) had some wonderful information to pass along! I wish you the best of luck! Hope to hear from you soon!

    PS- where will you be stationed? We live in Norfolk, VA and there is a very nice clinic just down the street from us!

    Hello Maria,

    My condolences to you and your family.

    My name is Kelli. I decided to contact you because I realize the challenge associated with the maternal pku diet. I began the diet at least 3 months prior to each conception and followed the diet throughout each pregnancy. I have three healthy happy children that I am very thankful for.

    Were you on diet for your children? How did you find the diet? What were your biggest Challenges.

    I found that the first three months were very difficult because the diet was soo strict and sometimes I felt soo sick. As the pregnancys progressed I could eat more phe and it was much easier. My biggest challenge was drinking all the medical food that I needed.

    I hope that all goes well for you. It’s great news that you will be near a pku clinic. Do your best to follow the diet and do regular blood work and you should have a healthy happy baby.

    Contact me any time If you want to chat.

    Best of luck,
