I'm 16 wks along with my first child. We find out what the sex is November 30th. DH and I were watching Nip/Tuck last night and it was an episode about circumcision. Particularly about how young girls find an intact penis to be disgusting and a turn off. I am completely against circumcision. DH knows this, we have had multiple discussions. I have even lamented about how DSS is circumcised and I hate that he had to go through that. DH asks me, "So why do you not want the baby to be circumcised if it's a boy?" Out of nowhere. Really? I thought this was understood and a closed case.
Turns out DH still thought that it was a possibility. "Well DSS and I are circumcised, I don't want to have this baby feel different." No. You just don't want to have to communicate with him about why two different choices were made. I explained some of the basic, "There is no medical reason for it, why put your child through pain, etc." This turned into a small argument which ended in us both being frustrated and my mind running for another couple of hours before sleep came.

The one good thing is that my father is a 60 yr old intact man who is a registered nurse. He is with me on this. I just feel like I am bracing myself for some heated discussions. How have others dealt with this? I
