I checked "no vaxes at all or stopped entirely". I started researching vaxes while I was pregnant with my first dd, and from that research I decided to vax on a delayed schedule, with no vaxes until age 2, and omitting some vaxes that I though were uneccessary or dangerous. However, our family tends to have very weird recations to medical stuff, and somehow I just couldn't bring myself to be okay with vaccinating my daughter. I just felt like, in the back of my mind, that it wouldn't be good for my kids, given the way our bodies work. I just couldn't. My own body isn't very strong when it comes to filtering stuff, and I mean that, as I can't even have a drink of wine without feeling like I am going to pass out(literally!). I caved once, and gave my dd the DTP shot at an ER visit for a deep cut in her foot, because she got it outside and I was scared. DD was 4 at the time, and a day or so later, she got pretty lethargic and had a fever, and vomited. I can't explain it, but I just *knew* she would have a reaction. With dd#2, she seems to be even more sensitive, and may have celiac disease, a darily allergy, and is slightly develpmentally delayed. Based on that and our family history, I have decided not to vax at all, at this time. I am still doing research, and my mind is open definately to learn knew things, but at this time, vaccinating isn't something that I feel comfortable with.
