I need to catch up on some earlier comments by Brianne and Jeffrey:

I have not noticed anything that makes me think birth order is correlated with AD/HD, but I have always wondered if alloimmunity (mother-fetus) problems were associated somehow.

I say this because my parents were Rh-incompatible, I was a first child (but rarely do 1st children have problems because of this), and my sister is a second child (but she apparently had no problems either). A third pregnancy terminated itself abnormally, so my parents left it at two.

But since both parents (probably) have showed signs of AD/HD, and my sister and I both are convinced we have it, I'd still go with the family inheritance thing in our case, not birth order.
