I had DS in the hospital, and we actually were planning on having him circumcised. Don't think it was a thoughtless decision; there are pages and pages in his baby journal I keep for him about my soul-searching. Anyway, that was the plan.
Then DS was born with a hydrocele--very swollen scrotum because of fluid passing from his abdomen.
His scrotum was so swollen that the doctor who was going to perform the circ couldn't get at the base of his penis to give him the necessary anesthetic, so she wouldn't do it.
We were asked if we wanted it done and had to sign a couple of release forms, so my hospital wouldn't have done it without our permission. When we were asked about it, it was pretty low-pressure, a very casual "so, do you want a circumcision or not?" kind of thing, rather than an assumption that we would have it done. Nobody tried to talk us out of it (although his pediatrician is SO happy we didn't have it done), and I don't get the impression that anyone would have tried to talk us into it, either.
In retrospect, we're really glad that circumstances conspired to stop the surgery. After agonizing over it and talking to lots of people and reading lots of websites, we were kind of relieved to have the decision made for us. And it was the right decision, so that's lucky, too.
