We recently found out that we are having a lovely, healthy boy...and the topic of circumcision came up - what are your thoughts?

I think... Discuss it with the father, with your doctor and find creditable facts, then decide what you feel is best for your child.

I did it with both boys, no hesitation. Discussed it with their doctors and agreed it was for the best.

The problem is that it's such a mine-field! Hubby is not circd,  yet he has had a couple of issues...I dont know where to go from here. Too much pressure and not enough resources.

This is a good start point for you then. Were hubby's issues exclusively to his body, or is it something he learned others have had to deal with? Was it easy to deal with? Or did his resulting feeling wish that he had been circ'd?

Don't ask anyone here!!!!! It only ends in war. Talk about it with more reasonable people like DH and you Dr.. It just ends in pettiness here.

I had this discussion with SO before we even got preg. Hoped for a girl since we had different opinions. I have 2 boys from a previous marriage and neither are circumcised, because their father wasn't. Lo and behold, I ended up preggo with another boy. SO is circumcised and wanted it. I told him that if we get it, HE is responsible for caring for it until healed because I was against it. We had it set to happen on Valentines Day and it got canceled. SO almost changed his mind, but his mom talked him back into it. Oh well. Only thing it caused to happen was to explain the difference to my older boys.
