... I too find this interesting. I had numerous ultrasounds with all of my kids. In fact, we used to joke around with the techs telling them that we could read the ultrasounds better than they could because we had so many. I had at least 5 ultrasounds with each pregnancy.

... Thirty years ago I had my three children, all of them had the same doctor, treatments, ultrasounds, vaccines, etc. But the first one is the only one with autism. He had all sort of problems, looking back really they were not serious but I was scared as the way the doctor presented to me. My theory for his 'autism' is that his immune system was affected through me. My... (25 replies)
... I am in the same position as EBoegel. I am going to throw a curve into to this also. I only had one ultrasound with my autistic daughter, Cara. I actually had several ultrasounds with my older daughter, Josie (NT). And yet, does it matter what caused Cara's autism? I can't go back in time and change it. I can only go forward and work with. Of course, there is... (25 replies)
... It may be premature to be blaming yourselves, Moms. Remember that many, many Moms had ultrasounds -- not just the small % that ended up with kids on the spectrum. I didn't have any ultrasounds at all w/my DS. He did have a shock reaction to pertussis vaccine, and I believe that is what did him in. In the future, we may find that there are subsets on the spectrum,... (25 replies)

... I to had ALOT of ultrasounds!! The day I found out I was pregant I had one and every week for five months then the dr didn't think I needed them as often. But then when I was seven and a half months pregnant problems started again. I had them once every other week. I also had amniosentese I don't know if that is spelt right. I have never given the ultrasound thing a thought... (11 replies)
... What an interesting thread. I had four ultrasounds, so not such a high number, but I did go into premature labour at 28 weeks (which they managed to stop) and then my boy was induced (lots of drugs, obviously), plus he wasn't breathing when he was born. I've wondered if these different factors might have triggered something off. There's also a possibility that I was... (11 replies)
... My sister proposed the same theory. She and I both had quite a few ultrasounds, but I haven't found it to be a common thread around the other parents I've spoken to. My nephew is very high functioning aspergers and my son is very high functioning pddnos. (11 replies)
