My son's got stuck to the gauze, I was a first time mom and my fiance' at the time wasn't there. I felt soo bad and cried and held him after I, gently as I could, removed it. It was horrid, so was the whole procedure for which I was in the room for. One of my biggest regrets in life is getting him circumcised, if we have any more boys they will be left as nature intended. My husband wanted it done so he wouldn't look different from him but now he regrets it as well. It's an unnecessary cosmetic procedure. I don't mean to be pushy I completely understand the social, family, spousal, etc, pressures. Just trying to give you some food for thought.
If you do decide to go with it, lots and lots of vaseline. I also used some neosporin to try and help ward off infection.
Congratulations on the up coming birth of your baby boy!
