Thanks, ladies. I try my best to encourage her to be active and eat healthy. We've been starting with walks but she's not so gung ho about eating healthier. I eat a decent amount of steamed veggies and she frowns her nose at that. LOL
Hi all,   It's been a while since I posted here. Last time I was really active was 5 years ago when my wife and I were expecting our first baby. Well now, we're in for round 2! My wife is 3 months pregnant and we're expecting the little one to arrive sometime in July.   But here's the catch: My wife never really shed the weight she gained from baby number 1.   She's WAY above what she was in college when we first met and the OBGYN was concerned about her...
Is this the first time AHRQ is tracking this?  Usually the National Hospital Discharge Survey data is used, and in 2006 they cited 1,146,000 circumcisions.   Anyway, 55% means circing is still the majority, but I wouldn't put it at more than 58%. Jewish people only make up roughly 2 percent of the population and they make up the majority of post-birth circs, I think.
Looks like a well-informed and intelligent response.
While I generally say live and let live, I don't think I'd advise foreskin restoration as a cure for meatal stenosis. It's a lifestyle decision, not a treatment.
That's a side effect of circ. It's called meatal stenosis.   http://www.urologyhealth.org/print/index.cfm?topic=650   http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001599.htm   http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/health/info/urinary/diagnose/meatal-stenosis.htm
  Right. And going by your logic there should be no male gynecologists because none of them know what it's like to have a vagina. This is a silly argument.    
That's pretty much the long and short of it for me.
  I don't know why you'd make such a sweeping generalization. I bonded with my son the minute he was born. I will never forget his birth and the immediate impression his being born left upon me. And many other fathers I've spoken to said the same.
Sounds like the obesity played more of a factor in any difficulties you had than the presence of a foreskin, as the fat pad of the pelvis overwhelming the penis made getting to the penis difficult.   As an intact male, I've been cathed with no problem. In normal healthy intact males, retraction is not an issue.
