I have a beautiful little girl with ASD that will be 7 this month and am pregnant with #2 that is due March 27th. This one is a boy and I was told because it's a boy, the odds of another ASD diagnosis goes WAY up. My husband has autism and is fully functional and a wonderful dad and husband. I was scared of having another one with ASD and that is why we waited so long to have #2. Does anyone have any experience with this?

It will be difficult and you might just ask sometimes - why did this happen? But you know, it's the reality. YOu just have to deal with it and seek for help. The kids are undergoing their individual OT and counseling sessions. Once a week, we also do family therapy as a group. When I feel like crying due to exhaustion or being overwhelmed due to the kids and my h, I go to betterhelp for instant assistance. There are times when the stress is taking a toll on me and I just can't operate. But I have to, you know. We are moms.
