Q. What are the chances that my children will have autism? My fiancé and I are planning on having children eventually. In his family, three of the five children have autism. My side is clear. What are the chances of us having a child with autism??

A. Autism is related to several genes and not just one. Therefore you can’t really tell if your children be autistic or not- it depends on how much “autistic genes” you and your fiancé have and how much of it you will inherit to your children. Regardless, you should check out this website:

A. Savannah, first congratulations for your pregnancy!

Actually RA is an autoimmune disease, the exact cause of RA is still unknown, but many researchers believe that one of the factor is genetic factor. since your mom had been diagnosed with RA, it means that you're in risk of having RA also.

Now that you're pregnant, you need to consult with your doctors about your risk factors. it doesn't always have to be you're also having RA. but during pregnancy, because of the body weight gain, it can make the RA more manifest, because of the weight load the affected joint has to bear.
If you are diagnosed also with RA, you need to consult with your ob-gyn doctor for the drugs of choice that is safe for the pregnancy.
