Hello. I just wanted to tell you that DH and I had the same concerns when I was pregnant with my second child. So far he seems okay. He does have some quirks...but nothing too severe. I think deciding to have another child is a very personal decision...

I guess I put my trust into a higher beings hands. I figured I am only meant to get what I can handle.

Good luck with which ever you decide....and good luck with OT.

Hi and welcome to the board. :) Although I don't have any set statistics for you, I can tell you that, although my 6yo DS is on the sensory scale (and has lots of anxiety issues as well), my 4yo DD is calm and extremely easy-going, with no sensory tics in sight...the complete opposite of her older brother. ;)

I wish you lots of luck. I think your fears are totally legitimate. But IMO, everything happens for a reason, and that includes our children and their *quirks*. Easier said than dealt with, though, right?

Your fears are valid.

We didn't find out about our oldest daughter's SPD until our youngest was a year and a half. So we didn't have those thoughts going into another pg.

However I can tell you that our youngest is showing zero signs of sensory issues at this point. Those little things that our first daughter did I look back on now that we know about SPD and think....OR COURSE! That explains it! I look for those things in DD2 and they aren't there. Not to say that we're "out of the woods" because DD1's SPD issues weren't enough to interrupt her life until she was 6.

Having additional children is a big decision regardless of a first born's needs. You just have to make a decision that is right for your family. I guarantee that if you do decide to have another child, you'll never regret it. Children are such blessings no matter their make-up!
