Hi everyone, I'm new to the site and really excited to be able to chat with people like me!! I am 28 (very soon to be 29) and have classic PKU. I am back on a strict diet to try to have a baby, doing pretty well so far have managed to get my levels down but still having a few blips here and there. I am a primary school teacher currently doing supply and loving it, although do need to up my efforts to secure full time work as my bank account is suffering! Would really love to get to know others on here and share stories and experiences so if anyone would like to get in touch I would be really pleased. Not sure how all this blogging stuff works, am a bit of a techno phobe at heart so any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you for reading, look forward to making some new friends. alt

    I’m 31 and always had decent levels, but working on ways to get them really low for pregnancy also. I’m about to go to the National PKU Conference to learn more (it’s in July). I’ll try to blog/share anything exciting I learn. Are you on Kuvan? I am and that makes levels easier, but I’m not 100% on board with taking it during pregnancy.
