Someone help! My ds is circumcised-mainly because I didn't bother to take a stance and/or research it at all. My husband and I made a mutual decision to do it and I will never forgive myself. I am still having nightmares which I'm not sure will ever go away. I am now pregnant with number two and am terrified about the thought of doing it again. No, I'm sorry, I WON'T do it again. Problem is, my husband has a huge problem with circing one and not the other. I've run out of ammo and need some help. I understand his concerns, but why should my second baby (if it's a boy) suffer because I made the mistake once? To make matters worse, an acquaintence of his who is a psychologist says that circing one and not the other is a bad idea. Why would the kids think it's a big deal if we don't make it one? He's concerned about how to handle the situation when the kiddos ask about it-how do we not make ds #1 feel like we "messed up" with him. Any suggestions or thoughts?
