I tried to inquire about autism tests when I got other genetic testing and was told there are not any reliable tests for autism yet.

I have heard Soo many different things....Age, having flu while pregnant, not enough vitamin D, too much testosterone in embryonic fluid etc.

Husband is 50 and I am 43. This is our first baby...ever. I am taking vitamin D, and drink soy milk 2-3 times a week, eat some edamame soy beans 2 times a week to boost a little estrogen in womb. Got flu shot....don't know if it will help odds...It really is in God's hands and I will live the gift god gives us no matterwhat!

Children with Autism are born with it. There isn't any real reason. It's just who they are. They are amazing people honest to God. My sister is Autistic and she is amazing! I couldn't imagine her any other way honestly
