Amniocentesis

I am wondering if anyone knows much about amniocentesis testing during pregnancy, mainly if it can detect autism? My husband and I are older, I am 34 and he is 43. From what I have read older males who impregnate someone have a higher risk of an autistic child?

I am aware of amniocentesis and that it can detect birth defects, but I wasn’t sure if it could only detect down syndrome etc or if it was sensitive enough to detect autism? I’m not pregnant yet as this worries both of us. Judge me all you want but I wouldn’t want my happy life ruined by an autistic child so if there was any chance of that happening I’d abort, without question. My biggest fear is if they are born with autism or any other form of retardation if you can sort of ‘adopt’ them out? I mean no testing is guaranteed so there is that off chance. I also know some friends who kids turned out to be autistic and they didn’t know until they were nearly 3, are you able to adopt a child out at that age? What help is there to parents who no longer want their kids?

There must be something in place for this type of thing. Worries me how there is so much autism and how people just brush it off as normal. Autism isn’t normal as much as parents of autistic children want to believe it is. I have friends with children aged 10+ and they bite! My dog doesn’t even bite, not normal. Saddest part is they brush it off as sensory issues and don’t even punish him so you are just suppose to sit there getting bitten? I’m sorry but at 34, travelling the world, making well over 6 digits, I don’t want to give it all up for poop smears on the wall. Some people find that endearing, I do not.

If we do decide to get pregnant I am hopeful for a well rounded, intelligent kid who plays sports and is just all around a ‘cool kid’. I worry about getting a loser :/ I’d be disappointed haha

    Did you really say you’d give your child away at age 3 if they had autism or other issues? Do you know how that would ruin their life…..they would have attachment issues for the rest of their life. Maybe a puppy is a better choice for you.

  3. Please DO NOT get pregnant.

    • You don’t know the baby will be fine or not. We always hope they will be.
      On the other hand my own parents were older when I was born and MY PINK UNICORN is on the boat!
      She seems unduly worried over everything. I don’t understand where she came up with the fathers age being a worry.
      What does worry me is her giving away the child if something is wrong with it.

  16. I’m not sure where to even start with comments on this & actually hope you’re just a troll. NO child is perfect or cool….parenthood is a LIFETIME commitment of worry, stress, heartbreak, unconditional love & support until it drops you to your knees. Having children means that you are no longer a priority & putting their needs first – comes first. Both my kids are highly academic, athletic & usually excel at most things they try…..but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy at all – we’ve had our issues – that’s what raising kids is all about. I for one wouldn’t change it for the world – they are my life & the reason I put in my best effort everday. I’m setting the example.
    Some people aren’t meant to raise kids – & that’s ok.

    [0]
  17. My son is autistic and I wouldn’t change him in any way.
    You really need to learn about autism before having kids if this is your attitude. There are many different forms of autism, which is why it is called autism spectrum disorder. People are affected differently with different levels of severity. There are many famous people with autism like Bill Gates, Dan Akroyd and Isaac Asimov just to name a few

    • She should’ve been aborted! There are so many well adjusted, high functioning autistic people out there…you wouldn’t know the difference. The class that graduated the year before mine had an autistic valedictorian. Who also graduated with honours. Some people just need to be educated to understand what autism actually is lol

  31. Wow I hope you are a troll and not really the selfish self centered asshole you sound like. Do not have children, keep your cushy life and narcissitic tendancies. No child, even a neurotypical one should have to have a parent like you. Seriously, your parents effed up in raising you.

    [0]
  32. I think it’s easy when you’re not a parent to make these kind of comments and feel genuine. After you become pregnant it’s a completely different story. We went the whole 9 yards to make sure our baby would be okay because I have a life long history with chronic illnesses. A mothers love is unconditional, even if you don’t understand it right now.

      There is no test for Autism as there is no genetic/ chromosomal/ dna marker so amnio will not help. If you’re worried about having a baby with issues don’t get pregnant adopt a baby you know has none and trust in your parenting abilities to raise them well enough they will have no other issues. There is no such thing as a problem free child PERIOD.

  36. You madam, are not fit to accept any gift of a child. If you have a “normal” child you will be unable to stop yourself from destroying their life with your disgusting attitude and unattainable standard of what you believe to be a good child. As for a poor wee child that requires help; your holier than thou, need to mention I make 6 figures attitude (oops, I also make 6 figures so really that means less than nothing unless you feel so inadequate you need to throw out how great you think you are) means you are ill equipped to even have a gold fish under your care. Seriously get a pet rock, maybe it will survive your “love”.

  38. Please do the world a favour and DO NOT REPRODUCE!!! If before you are even pregnant, you are trying to adopt your child out to other people, you don’t deserve a baby. I have a feeling that even if you had a perfectly healthy child, if her hair didn’t grow fast enough or if his eyelashes were longer than yours you would “adopt it out”. Just don’t have children…or pets for that matter!

    [0]
  39. It’s Posts like this I wish this page wasn’t anonymous this person deserves to be bashed to the finest, I don’t believe in abortion but you should get one cause that child will be perfect no matter what health issues it may or may not have and if you can’t see that then you don’t deserve to be a parent there’s people out there that would kill to have a child that can’t so if this is your concern that it will ruin your life over something that can’t be controlled….. and just that fact that you would be able to just give away a child just like that shows you do not deserve to be a parent, you should be ashamed of your self, go crawl in a hole

  41. Wow!! How horrible!! I really want to say more but…I don’t think any of it would be useful. You can not guarantee anything with children. Children are all blessings and if you are so worried about a child who is not ‘average’ please don’t have one. Kids with disabilities are still amazing kids worthy of everything that an ‘average’ child is!!!

  43. You should be ashamed of yourself. I was in my 20s when I got pregnant by an older man. My son does indeed have autism. He is wonderful. I wouldn’t change him for all the money in the world. He is now almost 9 years old. He is smart, funny, loving, affectionate and incredibly intelligent. High functioning and in a regular class in a regular school. Shame on you

    [0]
  44. Children are a gift and a blessing. Yes sometimes those gifts come with different wrapping and a little extra surprise. But none the less they are a special gift. If you cannot see this then maybe you are not meant to have this precious gift. And anyone that uses the word “retardation” definitely does not deserve the privilege or right to bring a child into this world.

  45. Lisa Boone Lisa Boone says:

    yeah, maybe you shouldn’t have children. Adopt a dog or a cat; actually, you’d be better with fish. I cannot even begin to list how incredibly offensive, inhumane and completely without compassion your post is.

    Children do not come with guarantees and there is no promise of it being easy. What are you going to do if you have a “healthy” baby, and it is diagnosed with a mental illness later in life? Auction it on ebay? Leave it at the Rescue Shelter?

    No seriously, don’t have kids.

    Don’t forget normal kids get sick. Sometimes they puke and stuff. It’s messy and smells a lot. A nanny will do all the work FOR you!!!
    What if you have the greatest kid in the world and they fall down skiing and have a head injury? Maybe have to have a wheelchair for the rest of their lives? Could happen you know. There are many “what iffs” to having a kid.
    Maybe you should just adopt the nanny as you can send them back and it’s OK.

      Agreed – the wording is so ridiculous and inflammatory the post is clearly fake. A couple minutes of googling will tell you amniocentesis doesn’t predict autism.

    • Well anyone who knows what autism is will realize that no there is no test. They are perfectly healthy just different. And she has a sad description of what autism is lol cause I have a child with autism never has smeared poop on walls or bit anyone and yes they can do that but so can a neurotypical child LOL. So yah to me this is some troll that wants to make people upset. And it’s so easy to say when you post anonymously but let’s see them say it to someone’s face (they wouldn’t cause they’re so scared of being judged by others themselves lol).

  55. Please consider that with any child there are no guarantees. If what you seek is perfection nothing can guarantee this. How aweful it would be for any child if they were given away for not meeting your expectations. Give this some thought. Parenting any child comes with challenges, but also with great reward.

  57. Good god, please chose not to have children. I’m not sure if you’re just trolling for hate or this post is actually serious. My niece is autistic and she’s beautiful, courageous and strong. You could learn some compassion from people with autism or down syndrome. I believe you are the one with a more severe disability and it’s hard for me to accept that people like you exist.

  66. Worry about getting a loser? Omg if anyone is the loser it’s you for even thinking that. A child is a blessing not matter what challenges they face. I think you should NOT be a parent. When yup become a parent no matter what happens they are your child and you should love that child no matter what. Do everyone a favor and don’t have kids if you feel this way. I feel sorry for you actually and wish you luck.

  77. If you are not willing to give up your perfect life you should not have children if you worry about these things happening. No judgment. Some people just shouldn’t have children because even if the child did not turn out handicap in any way I can tell you that a child without any handicaps can be a real handfull of craziness in your life. If you are worried about a child ruining your life then you just shouldn’t have any because you are not willing to do what it takes!!!! You need to be willing to give things up in your life to have children and it may be hard for you to give things up. When you are ready to give things up and have a child that child can bring you many many joys. You really have to want to bring a human being into the world and want to teach them how to really live and enjoy their life and be proud of who they are even if they are not perfect according to you.

But the fact is that it happens, and it’s a lot more common now than it used to be. What if your child goes to school and wants to play with the autistic kid? Or makes friends with a kid with down syndrome? Will that be encouraged or not allowed? You really need to learn about other people so you can teach your child tolerance and love

With our 3rd I tested high in some hormone that indicated possibility of our baby having Downs. They offered us Amnio and we refused because it didn’t matter. I already loved my baby in tummy no matter what. He ended up not having downs. Even with 3 healthy babies there was still poop smears now and then…you clean it and go on!! So many great lessons can be learned from challenges in life and these lessons make us better people and parents. I think you should just keep traveling the world and making your six figures (we are now retired empty nesters traveling the world so I understand your love of travel)

  102. Wow where do I even start. I have 3 boys and all are completely different. The oldest has the biggest heart you will ever see. Not a natural when it comes to sports but has more drive then anyone I’ve ever seen. However when it comes to computers you wont find anyone smarter. He can do things with technology that would baffle you. My middle child would, by you ,be considered “perfect”. Perfect report cards all the time. Naturally gifted athlete, played on U14 summer boys basketball team at 11.And all around great kid. My youngest would be your worst nightmare. Autistic, sensory issues and ADHD. I guess where I am going with this is every child is born with their own special talents. It takes a loving person to see that. I don’t love one of my children more. I don’t praise one child more. I most certainly do not regret any of my children. My son with autism actually has taught me so much about life and the world around us. He sees things differently in such a wholesome manner which I hope you don’t ever have the privilege of experiencing. You don’t deserve a child with Autism. They are perfect.

  113. Woah…. I don’t even know where to start. I was afraid of physical defects with my children when I was pregnant I was sexually assaulted by a special needs man when I was 13. Seeing people with special needs on the buses or in the supermarket give me severe anxiety and panic attacks. To the point I stopped going out. So having a child like that scared me. I also thought I’d never give up gaming after having my first.

    Your whole life, in it’s entirety changes the instant you become pregnant. And it doesn’t stop there. As your child grows inside you you continue to change. And right at the moment your child makes its first sound you’re hooked. It’s like a warm wave of “oh my god, this is it…i’m a mom” washes over you. Then you see their little faces and you melt. Your afraid, nervous, anxious, so totally in love with your creation.

    Your priorities change. How you view yourself and others changes. You will never be the person you were before.

    No child is born cool or perfect. It’s thru our teachings as their parents and their caregivers that mold them to be the children they are going to be. And you can only shelter them from the world and it’s influence for so long. They’re going to grow up. They’re going to learn so many different things. And it’s our job to make sure that our fears and anxieties don’t become theirs.

    Autism is a thing of the world now. All you can do is screen for it as your child grows. To insure you catch it early enough and work with your child and their doctors and professionals to manage it.

    Being a parent isn’t for everyone. But you have to put in the time and effort and love into your child to insure they grow to their full potential.

    There is no love in this world that compares to the love you have for your child. None.

    God bless you.

    I teach wonderful children with a variety of diagnoses, including autism. It continues to be my passion. I love leavening from my students.

I have the most fulfilling career, I am constantly laughing and smiling. I feel privileged to teach such unique and amazing children.
    I hope you understand there are so many different disabilities and diagnoses out there, autism is just one of many. If you can’t cope with the idea of having a child with a diagnoses, please don’t have them. What will happens if you have a healthy child but then your child gets depressed or if they struggle with mental illness, are you going to abandon them?

  130. I spent over two and a half nearly three years more in then out of the hospital with my daughter during our battle with aplastic anemia. Which is bone marrow failure for those who don’t know. And I wouldn’t trade a moment of it for the world. Only thing I would change is more time with her and her getting better rather then gaining her angel wings. And yet there are people like you, who worry about autism and the like. Be grateful for the gift of life or go get your tubes cut and cautorized so you can’t procreate. I would happily give you a Darwinism award for doing so and doing us all a favor and not reproducing. A child is a gift. Even if you never get to hold that child in your arms or lose that child when they have barely lived to me having a child with autism would just mean more love for me to give that child.

    Your attitude sickens me. And shutout Edmonton you make me sick for approving this disgusting post. By doing so your validating this sickening drivel and encouraging the behavior.

  147. Amanda Rose Amanda Rose says:

    even “typical” kids can disrupt your “Happy life”. What about the possibility of your child having allergies/asthma, making playing outside in the spring/summer unbearable? What about endless earaches, resulting in your child needing surgery, because the pain keeps him up for hours every night? What about the possibility of child-hood cancer, heart defects, cerebral palsy, or anxiety, just to name a few. If you want a “perfect” child, don’t have children, as there is no such thing. If you think you are able to give away your child at 3 years old then it is apparent you yourself have some major psychological problems. Children are people, and people have problems. I wouldn’t trade the hugs and snuggles and fun I have with my kids. Along with all the incredible experiences came numerous hospital visits, many restless nights, and worry, but at the end of the day, my boys are the BEST thing that happened to me. They are worth every Dr visit, every night time waking and every minute spent worrying. They are my life. If you think your kids will be anything less than your world, you would be doing the child a disservice. If you don’t want your “imperfect” child, better not have kids. But..you’ll never know the joy you’ve missed out on. When you’re old and grey, who will visit you? Who will take you to your Dr appointments? This is probably the saddest post I ever read.

If all you will accept is the picture you have in your head about what your child should be like you should NOT have children!!! EVER!!! Also, your ‘education’ about autism lacks a lot of education. If you are actually worried about it you need to go get some new statistics and knowledge. In the end, what I’ve gathered from your post is that you are waaaay too self absorbed to be pregnant and give birth to a child. Here’s something you need to know… a child… ALL children are a gift.

  157. Honestly, whoever you are, I really hope you don’t have kids because from reading that post, whatever kid that has to deal with you as a mother I feel bad for them. My brother is classified as being on the autism scale and he plays sports all the time. He has ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s, anxiety, extreme separation anxiety, PANDAS disorder, and a couple other things. If you want that perfect child, then you shouldn’t have kids. Because from reading that, you’d be the mom to force your child to be perfect. You’ll most likely end up with a depressed teenager. A kid with autism is a normal kid that just needs a little more help. So honestly, if this is what you want, you can go screw yourself.

    -Sincerely a teenager with medical problems, and a teenager with a younger brother who is on the autism scale.

    I hope in your heart, you realize that a kid isn’t meant to be your perfect little experiment.

    An amniocentesis only detects if there are additional chromosomes (trisomy/down syndrome) you are offered genetic testing early in pregnancy. But autism isn’t diagnosed in utero usually.

Yes I get you are worried due to your ages. But your child we be who the will be loser or not. When I was expecting at 27 my only worry was is she going to be healthy, have 10 toes and 10 fingers. Yes having a child with special needs would be a lot of work but even if my daughter had some sort of special need I would still love her and give her the life she deserves. You my dear are selfish and honestly don’t deserve a child. Sorry. Being a parent means you know have to be there for your child no matter what. No matter if they need glasses, braces or extra help leaning. You love that child you brought into this world. If you want a child that bad you need to realize this.

You want a healthy child that’s “all around cool” then teach them that. Better yet….maybe you shouldn’t have children or pets. Maybe buy a cactus.

  175. why don’t you try and adopt a child ,that need a home,this way you can make sure its healthy ,has no defects etc ?? its kind of sad,because even healthy children can become a handful as they grow,and i have a feeling you would not be able to deal with that either,by the way i had my last one at 34 and she is totally normal,smart,happy etc etc,i had 5 all together,and it was not always easy,despite the fact i did not exspect perfection ,like you seem too !

  176. On one hand, it is good you are thinkIng about this. On the other hand, don’t have kids if this is where you are honestly at. No child is perfect, whether they have “defects” or not.

    There is no such thing as the perfect child nor perfect parenting. We are given the children we were meant to have.

Just different than others. You are definitely NOT fit to be a mother! Especially with that shitty attitude! I am currently pregnant with my 4th child. And guess what! They are all different. They all have different needs yet none of them were born with any deficiencies! DO NOT GET PREGNANT!

  204. That is so cruel. Having an autistic child does NOT ruin your life. Shame on you, you don’t deserve a child if you think like that. All babies are perfect human beings no matter what their label is, whether it be Autism, Down syndrome, delayed whatever or any “defect” for that matter.

  205. Just don’t have children….PLEASE!!!!!
    There is no test for autism.
    And no matter how “perfect” a child is at birth, there is no guarantee as to how they will turn out, no matter how “good” a parent you are.
    There are far worse things than autism to worry about. I encourage you to do a lot more research before deciding to have children.

    I had my last three kids in my mid 40s 44-45 to he
    exact of my six kids they are the most intelligent of them all.

    The real question should be?? Am i healthy. Your mineral and enzyme levels ate good, your iron, zinc, copper levels are good, your liver enzymes are good, your hormone levels are good, your kidney and thyroid functioning are good.

    And you nutritional life style is good.

    No dairy, no soda, no junk food, no boxed food, no can food. Organic is the way to go.

    Staying away from plastics, house hold toxic cleaning products. Filter (Berkey is the best over the counter) and shower filter.

    Clean laundry soap, and hand soap, no perfumes unless there essential oils

    Try and keep your cell phone off your person as much as possible. Use wind up alarm clock snd keep all electrical devices out of your bedroom.

    Get chiropractic care at least once a week, i highly recommend maximized living chiropractors.

    Doing earthling daily and 20 min of pure sun, no sunscreen, just use coconut oil, and if your afraid of that Mercola has a good nontoxic brand he sells on his site.

  214. Pretty simple for this person – don’t risk pregnancy.

    She plum forgot about the effects & risks for her body & mind..

    Nope, just shouldn’t procreate.

    Enjoy your six figures & shame on you for suggesting your husband could produce offspring that isn’t perfect, (by your measure) simply because of his age. That’s ridiculously rude & disrespectful to the possible future father of your children. But we all already know – anything you deemed imperfect about your child.. would be blamed upon him. Sad.
    Hope he figures out this post & makes some big choices before it’s too late.

    What are you going to do if you get pregnant, raise your designer kid until 10 or 11, and then they’re are brain injured in a car accident. They won’t be neuro -typical or your “designer baby” anymore. Are you going to give them up at that age?

    Parenthood is a commitment of 100% for life, there aren’t any manuals or guarantees. I give you credit for asking, and realizing that you aren’t cut out for raising someone with special needs, but don’t bother getting pregnant or adopting. Society needs kinder people, not born or bred trolls like you.

  225. Patti Fraser Patti Fraser says:

    There are only a certain amount of human defects that they can determine by an amniocentesis. They can determine some congenital defects with just the ultrasound. Even if you adopt a child there are defects that can show up much later in life. You could start by going to a genetic counsellor and discuss your concerns. Nothing in life is 100% — it maybe you should reconsider what it is you want for your life. Maybe being a wonderful Aunt would be more rewarding, not everyone is cut out for having children.

  244. Don’t count on a child slipping into your life like a kit love. Your life will be upside down no matter what. Once that child is born….. there is a MYRIAD list of things that can be wrong with it. Don’t focus on cause celebes. If you are worried you don’t want anything but a “perfectly healthy, normal” kid don’t have kids. And what if your kid is born healthy but gets cancer and dies at age 2. Listen lady, having kids is going to eff you up. BEST case scenario is it effs you up in predictable ways. Worst case scenario, you are scarred for life because something that grew inside you, was a part of you and you (presumably) feel some measure of attachment to, is now dead and you will never get him/her back. From what it sounds like, you aren’t REALLY interested in having kids anyways, are you? Oh snap. And then I read the rest of your post. Yeah. Don’t have kids; you will not be happy. You will not find joy in those disgusting and shitty moments. I’m tempted to say it in judgement but really, I say this as just straight up advice: DO NOT HAVE KIDS! Your salary and travelling are more important to you and having a kid that you resent because you’re “awesome” life is gone, will make your life far worse.

  246. I think a pet rock is more what your looking for. Even the most intelligent, well rounded kids can be a handful and cause disappoint it is all part of the process of being in a parent/child relationship. Ehat your looking for a fairy tale not reality.

  247. You don’t really get to pick that. You can do a nuceal testing early on and if that turns positive you then can look into an amino. But amnios are interesting as they often make you miscarry. It’s actually a higher risk of miscarriage getting one then of having a child with autism. Also they can’t always detect these things in pregnancy. Often you don’t find out until after birth or even years later. Everyone wants the perfect child. But honestly getting one and parenting like you describe sounds a bit like a fairytale in your head. If you want to have kids you have to be ready that anything can happen. Also you may take years to get pregnant if you even do. So by the time tests can even happen you may change your mind. The chances of finding out something is wrong early enough to abort is also very low. So maybe you should ask yourself if you are ready to be a parent no matter what. I’ve had 2 preemies. There are just some things you don’t ever see coming. Like a sick kid. If you expect lollipops and roses, you won’t get it.

    If you want to “adopt out” your child if they don’t behave normally, you shouldn’t have a child. Parenting is about adapting and accepting, not about getting rid of a kid who didn’t fit your perfect dream. And honestly, did you expect a positive response? How about you go adopt that perfect kid instead of worrying about making your own.

  250. As far as I know, no they can’t test for autism. As far as I know the test can detect downs and a few other abnormalities but I’ve heard cases where doing the test caused issues with the pregnancy.

    As for anyone willing to give up their child, after raising them for years, unless they are unable to support that child financially, I don’t see why it’s ok to just ditch your kid, saying that however I’m sure there would be people willing to care and nurture that child and the sperm and egg donars should no longer be able to have children.

    As for your want of a perfect child, no one can blame you but what would happen if there was an accident which left your child disfigured, lose brain function or other such potentials? Would you ditch your kid because your kid is now a so called “burden” to you and your lifestyle? If I were you, I’d go get my tubes tied and live the rest of your life.

    If fear of a less than “perfect” child would have you giving up a child after 3 yrs I think you should seriously consider never getting pregnant. There is no such thing as a perfect child, they make messes, get sick, talk back, get into things, rebel and so on.

  260. You’ve posed a few questions here.
    Can autism be detected by an amino? Not that I’ve ever heard! Anyone have more up-to-date info on the magic that may exist on this?
    Is there evidence to suggest that women who are “impregnanted” by older men have a higher chance of birthing a child with chromosomal anomalies or autism? Yes
    Can children with “autism or any other form of retardation” (considering how this word is generally used in our society, shame on you) be adopted out? Handed over to the system. Yes. Child services loves to farm out special needs children to under-qualified foster homes where abuse is imminent. But then, doesn’t seem like you’d care.
    Are you able to adopt a child out at 3? Yes, bad parents may abandon children at any age.
    What help is there for parents who no longer want their kids? I’m not sure that there’s enough psychological help for someone who doesn’t want their life ruined by offspring. But ask your doctor for some happy pills and you won’t notice your lack of compassion.
    And as for sitting and being bitten. .. yes I’m sure that’s exactly what happens. People just sit and let their children chew on them.

    Bottom line. If you don’t want your life to get messy, dirty, stinky and uncomfortable, just stick to a dog. At least you can kennel it when you travel with your hundreds of thousands and not worry about where the next toilet is for potty training. It seems to me that you have not taken into consideration parenting at all.
    Nothing wrong with never having children. Plenty wrong with your thought process.

  265. So if your kid was ever in a severe accident and ended up with a massive head injury would you adopt him out? If yoir child got cancer would you adopt him out?
    My daughter has down syndrome and i wouldn’t trade her for anything shes the sweetest most loving soul.

    I was told she would never roll over as a baby. She was rolling by 3 months.
    I was told she would never say mom. She said mom when she was 12 months
    I was told she would never walk. She took her first steps at 18 months.

    Yes this life has its challenges but I promise the good days far out number the bad.
