Actually you've been very helpful, thanks!! :)) It's good to know it is common with other kids (even though I don't wish it on others kids, if you kwim!). He's going to Kennedy Krieger at the end of the month so hopefully we'll get answers! Thanks so much for responding!  
I have a strong suspicion that my son (32 month old, with ASD) has allergies. First, I am quite sure he has bad GI issues (we are going to Kennedy Krieger this month and will hopefully be referred to a ped GI specialist)... won't go into it too much but let's just say he has loose stools 3 to 5/6 times a day that STINK horribly!! :(   So a week ago these bright pink, BUMPY circles (rashes) have shown up on his face. I thought maybe it could be viral, since he has had...
Thanks Mosaic!! What do you mean by hormones, like BF hormones??
For the last 2-3 months I've been having bloating off and on, like you get before AF. I haven't gotten AF back yet. With my 2nd baby I got AF back exactly 2 months after I weaned completely (my milk dried up around 7 months last time b/c I had to go back to work around 3 months, pumping wasn't working, yada yada). I don't know if I got it back in that time frame last time because I weaned or because I would have gotten it back at 9 months regardless.   So for the...
I'm so sorry about what happened to your son, that's awful!! So glad your counselors had your back and it's so reassuring that there are actually people out there who truly care about kids!   My son isn't nonverbal, he has language but it's mostly all echolalia (he can sing songs, repeat words and phrases, and label), but he still doesn't use words to communicate so he wouldn't be able to tell me if something happened to him, at least right now.   Thanks so much for all...
Thank you thank you thank you for all the great advice ladies!!!!!!!!! You have made me feel SO much better!! I will be reading your posts every time I start getting worried again!
  Thank you thank you thank you Queen!!!!!!!! This post will actually help me sleep easier at night, thank you so much (and flower97 and Azik's mom as well)! That's great advice about meeting everyone who he will come in contact with. Did any of your kids take the special ed bus and how did they do? He's gonna start right when he turns 3 and he's such a tiny little guy, I can't imagine him getting on a bus without me    
I don't mean to reply to my own post but the "edit" button isn't working for some reason. I just realized that the VA incident happened 2 years ago, I think it has come back in the news b/c of the lawsuit.   Am I the only one with these fears? I am grateful for all the programs they have in my county, but it's so hard to have that trust when you have a child who cannot tell you what goes on.   Maybe I'm just being paranoid...
In light of some recent news stories (one being the Alabama special ed teacher Jeremy Hollinger who made fun of one of his students on FB, and the other was the bus driver and attendant in VA who were caught on camera hitting an autistic student on the bus and spraying him with an aerosol can), I am becoming so scared about sending my son to special ed preschool once he turns 3 in March! The thing is I think he'll love school and he'll get so much more than I can give...
Thank you so much mamas!! You guys made me feel so much better. And I'm so glad to hear your LO's were totally fine! :))
