QMy 1st born child was diagnosed with ASD, if i'll have another baby, will he have the same condition?

My 3 1/2 yrs. old son was diagnosed with ASD-highly functional type. My husband &I, (before he was diagnosed) was planning to have another child so it won't be too lonely for him to be an only child. We've been trying for more than a year, but i didn't get pregnant. I still want to have another child even after the bad news we got about my son's condition 4 months ago. My husband on the other hand, changed his mind totally. He's scared (now, I am too) and worried that if we'll have another one, it'll have the same condition or worst. Is, this possible? The doctors here in the Philippines can't really tell us the cause of my son's condition. I gathered from my research that there are too many possible causes to become autistic. But, my husband seemed to think it's genetic (w/ my son's symptoms &our research about this challenge, he figured out that he is ASD-highly functional type too). What are the odds?
