Been trying to conceive #1 but DP and I both keep freaking out, as his brother has severe autism, and his nephew (from another brother) is also on the spectrum.
I'm madly researching prevention, genetics, gut flora, GAPS diet, anything to allay our fears, on top of my own issues (age, endo, ivf). Stressful! 😣 I also have gut issues myself (candida, food intolerances) so with his genetic trigger, n my s#t flora, I'm seriously panicked and about to give up. Was thinking of sperm donor also but not sure how much this would change things.
Just wondering if anyone else has been in the same boat. I know it's a scary topic, appreciate anyone's response thank you.
