Ok...so people should be banned from talking about traumatic baby things when new baby mamas are around. I'm on a stepmom site where someone posed the question about vaccinations and its link to autism then proceeded to tell a story about a 2 month old that got vaccinations done and then almost immediately after started exhibiting signs of autism and now has been fully diagnosed.
Bella was scheduled for her 2 month vaccinations today. So, when I went into the immunization clinic on base I grilled the nurse about what she thought. She said it was very rare, the link between the two was an opinion with no factual basis and that she thought Bella should have the shots.
So she did. And those needles were HUGE for a baby. She cried...that open mouthed sobbing scream and that made me cry...so there we were in the little exam room and the poor nurse trying to comfort me and I'm trying to comfort Bella...
We survived the 2 month shots, but I can't believe I have to do this again in 2 months. Gaaaah!
