What's the chance

Aspergers Syndrome runs all through my family. I haven't got it but I was wondering what's the chance my baby could have it. I was told I could be a carrier.

No one can give you an exact probability on that.  While there are correlations within families, perhaps an increased likelihood of having multiple children with autism in a single family, it is impossible to say what the probability is.  The vast majority of children do not have autism even if other family members do.
