So after calling/visiting a few people to tell them our news I decided to go public on Facebook. Most reactions have been good. My cousin however said 'OMG!!! Are you nuts?!?!?!'. I figured she would be stupid about it. She didn't have kids because she hated her childhood. I responded 'Why would you say/think that?'. She could have atleast said something nice before calling me nuts. Maybe I'm just being sensitive.

Thanks.

Her next response was...

"I dunno know....I guess kids scare me a little. LOL...congratulations though."

I guess I don't have to go all hormonal now.

Don't let her get to you. Enjoy this special time! Unless you have a large family yourself people can't understand what joy it can bring. Remember for every handful of supporters your gonna have 1 who is negative ignore that person and relish in the pregnancy!

as long as your baby is loved by its parents, nobody's else's reaction should matter

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Thanks. I ended up removing my announcement from my page b/c I just couldn't take the comments right now. I'm feeling really emotional about it. I don't know why I care.
