I also wanted to mention my DD had a lot of other issues I never *connected* with vax that I now *know in my heart* was from vax and b/c since we stopped vaxing she's all better. I know I mentioned about the blood in her stools. She also had something similar to night terrors, but of course the Dr said she was too young yadayada I took a video of it for her and then she panicked into we need to get her to a specialist i think she's having seizures in her sleep. Ironically by the time the specialist would see her we had already stopped vax and she wasn't going through it anymore.
It is also hard to say b/c my DD was so calm and wonderful before her vax, but right after she was screaming 4+ hours a day. IDK if she got that "syndrome" or w/e it is that the Dr says can happen where the baby just cries all the time as a side effect, but she was also in immense pain b/c right after the vax was when her intestines started flaring up causing blood in her stools, and those "night terrors" started happening during all of her day sleep...every single nap until we stopped vax.
So anyways I had a dream reminding me of all of this and thought I should let everyone know. I didn't start out every questioning vax at all, I just trusted the Drs. I knew I wanted an un-medicated birth and to BF and BW and did all of that and still am, but besides my birth and choice of feeding DD I trusted the pedi with everything else, b/c heck I am only 23 and had her at 21 and don't really have family and did not know much about any of this parenting stuff. Once I felt things were just all wrong, that's when I started researching everything and found out about AP, and CIO, and all these other things I did or did not support. Then after I joined mothering I saw some people didn't want to vax...well how come? Researched all the vax and diseases and found my answer. I also must say I am still FUMING that no Dr ever told me I should consider not vax b/c we have a history of seizures! My mother died of complications with a seizure, my bro is on meds 3x a day for seizures, and I have mini ones in my brain sporadically that seem to have no effect...
I am so thankful, that even though we went through absolute hell with DD's vax side effects they were not as bad as they could have been, they were reversible, and hopefully she will not have any affects from them now.
On another note, When DD was 8 m/o she was saying 10+ words, she did get some of the 9 m/o vax and had a fever for 4 days, nothing else though, but I have noticed she doesn't see to be at the same level as she was. She's 15 m/o now and says probably 15 words...she's still very smart, she just used to be very advanced (even her Dr said so) and now she's more average, maybe a little advanced. I mean I don't have any *proof* just that I am a SAHM and have seen her every single day and have never been away from her more than a handful of times for short periods, so I *feel* I notice when something is just different.
Anyways everything I see as a vax reaction I have gotten a million excuses for and of course none were reported as such, b/c there are just too many other reasons for what she went through...I wish I could take back all that screaming and all that pain.
