We are living in limbo land. DD has epilepsy and other probs that may or may not be genetic. We are currently waiting for genetic counsellor to do some more gene testing for Rett Syndrome and other conditions related.

We have always wanted 3 children, this changed when DD was 4 months old and diagnosed with epilepsy. We went down to 2 children and now we are not sure with recent diagnosis of Microcephaly as to whether we will have anymore.

Long winded explanation but I am 33 this year and was wondering how old you were when you had last baby NT or with special needs??

I was 29, DS3 has hyperactivity (with a high probability of ADHD), probable Autism (being assessed in May), SALT issues, hypermobility syndrome and life threatening allergies.

Awaiting genetic test results as DD and DS2 have the same issues, except for the allergies.

To clarify :

16 DD - Hypermobility syndrome, GDD, LD's, HFA, partially deaf, dyslexia, Dyspraxia, dyscalculia, SALT issues, APD, and two leaky heart valves that need replacing.

20 DS1 - mild, as yet undxd Hypermobility syndrome, and just starting the process of dx for Aspergers on advice of the school.

21 DS2 - Hypermobility Syndrome, GDD, ASD, partially deaf, dyslexia, dyspraxia, SALT issues, APD, chronic brittle asthma.

29 DS3 - Hypermobility Syndrome, GDD, probable Autism (awaiting ADOS in May), hyperactivity 'with a high probability of ADHD', SALT issues, life threatening allergies.

I have shite genetics.

My DC's have 3 different fathers. DD's father has two DC's that also have SN's. DS1's father is NT. DS2 and DS3 have the same father. He was dxd with Autism when he was 12, and has recently been dxd with Dyspraxia through his work.

I'm not having any more DC's, I'm waiting to be sterilised.

soverytiredofthis, have you had genetic counselling?

I was 22,23 and 29 when I had mine and my eldest is severely disabled. We were given a 10% of re-occurrence so stopped at two and then had a surprise!

My daughter has similar problems to your by the sounds of it, we never found a medical cause despite lots of tests. Retts is always tested for girls with microcephaly and GDD btw

32 with DS1, he's NT but geeky, a lot like my ex H.

34 with DS2, ASD.

37 with DS3, NT (ish) but very quirky.

For my family, DS3 has proved to be a very good decision, he's so good for DS2 (and just delicious blush )

31 - DS has DYS, DYS, ASD
33 - DD has DYS

Very intelligent children, both of them.

On both sides of our families, these conditions appear, also ADHD. Only realised this since DS his first diagnosis 2 years ago.

I sometimes think about my future grandchildren.....
