Anyone have an autistic child from the first marriage? I have a four year old autistic girl and now a 2 month old baby boy with my new man. I'm plagued by obsessive thoughts wondering if he will develop it too and then I will feel to blame. It's awful! My ex has mild Tourette's, so I'm hoping it wasn't my genes that caused it . Not that I want him to have another autistic child, but he's not the one with a new baby! I didn't know autism was genetic, there is no one on either side of the family with it. I wouldn't have gotten pregnant if I knew. Anyone go through this? And what was the turn out?
