My boyfriend's 5yr old girl from a previous relationship has either Autism or Rett syndrome, the doctors are not sure. I am now 7 mnths pregnant with a girl. I also have a 5 yr girl from a previous relationship and she is fine. What are the chances of our baby having any of these diseases as I am very worried?
