Quoting Zhander&Zoey:" I feel so much pressure. I know SOs mom would start some smurf if I tell her I'm delaying or not doing ... [snip!] ... that COULD potentially make it worse. What do you ladies think? Do you believe the hype that it could cause or make it worse?"
Oh I have caught smurf from people and I always tell them My kid My choice. Its hard when you dont have family support, I am lucky and have both my DHs side of the family and mine. Maybe not tell your SO's mother of your choice, its not really any of her business anyways.
As for the Autism thing, do I think there is a correlation. Yes. Personally I believe there is. I think that its caused from Toxic overload. I nannied for a family for 5 years who had a son with autism, I have asked his mother her personally opinion on the subject. She told me that she noticed it after a round of shots but she still chose to vaccinate her next child. Im not sure if she does them all or some, I never got into to much detail.
My biggest fear really isn't the whole autism scare. Its the harmful chemicals and the effects they have on the body. Aluminum is used as a binder which stays in the body forever. Its supresses the neurological system severly. Look at all the increased diagnosis in ADD, ADHD, Alzheimers, Cancer, Autism, Etc.
Ontop of that we add formeldahyde, Mercury, Aluminum, Animal Bi-products, Aborted Fetus' to name a few. Im not ok with that.
