He is still reluctant, but as I have posted before, has come so far around, considering he started from the "it's just done" point of view. He now agrees that he wouldn't want to have it done, even if I just left it up to him at this point. He also admitted, that while life would have been a whole lot easier for him if I had never presented an opposing view, he does not regret being more informed about the subject. He is still a little panicky about the whole thing, since our son is due in 2 weeks now, but I think (and he agreed with this) that it is all pretty much because there is this deep nagging feeling that either our son's penis is "messed up" or dh's is. I think it all boils down to insecurity. He thought this operation was done to make him somehow "better" in that department, but to find out it really has no point is so hard. We are beyond presenting information at this point. He knows it is all about emotion now, and what he needs to come to terms with. He miserably said "I just wish if they couldn't come up with a good medical reason to do it, that it would not be legal."
I was just like "hmmm, good point honey" (meanwhile, inside ) I really love dh and it's times like this that he reminds me why I married him.
I wish the rates were dropping faster in this country. I wish people would just think about this more before sacrificing their sons... but at least I know that in our tiny little corner of America, things will be peaceful and gentle, as nature intended.
I know it's bittersweet, though... on the one hand, your baby will be intact (yay!), but on the other hand? Your husband is going through some tough thought processes. Keep us updated, and enjoy the last bit of your pregnancy.
