My son is on a wait list to be evaluated for Autism. My husband and I are certain that he is on the spectrum, but is high functioning. He has difficulty with his speech, socialization, and can be known to have explosive tantrums.
We have been trying for a second child for almost three years, without success, and now because our son is struggling we are not sure if we should continue trying. I have P.C.O.S, and am on fertility drugs.
I am just wondering (for those who have autisic children)
: Was it hard to adjust with a second baby with the first being autistic?
Was your second child autistic? What are pros and cons? If you could redo anything, would you still decide to have a second child?
Our son is three, so would be around 4 when the potential baby would be born.
