I am 21 weeks and just found out is a boy! While I am so excited about having a boy after 2 girls, there was always ONE thing that scared me about having a boy... the debate with DH about circumcision.
I am very much against it. All of the research I have done indicates that it is not medically necessary and that there is a greater chance of a problem occuring BECAUSE of a circumcision than the need for a man to have a problem and need to have it done later in life. I do not think "to look like his dad" is a good enough argument to just ignore the research, not to mention the pain the poor baby would go through.
DH on the other hand, is very in favor of it. We haven't had a real conversation about it yet, but have any of you encountered this problem? I hear so many moms say they let the dad decide since they know more about it, but I don't think that is necessarily true. How have you handled this? I don't want this to cause a problem between us, but I also cannot allow my baby to be circumcised!
