So, hubby and I are expecting our 3rd child, our first boy. I have been against circumcision from the start for our little man, but didn't want to make it a big debate between me and hubby. I expressed my concerns and let him marinate on them a bit.
He had the typical responses - he didn't want our son to be made fun of or for it to get infected if we didn't have the procedure, etc. I shared what information I had found that countered his concerns and just let him think about it. I told him that I respected his thoughts, and that we would keep discussing it, but that my concerns and wishes hadn't changed.
Today hubby brought it up and agreed that we should not circumcise our son! I am 38 weeks day after tomorrow so I couldn't be more happy that he agrees with me at this point, and that our son will stay in tact!! YAYYYY!!!!
I just had to share this with a community of people who would understand why this is such a big deal to me. <3
He will thank you for keeping him intact later on, because he will know just how much you cared for him and how much effort you put into protecting him. When that day comes i suspect it will be one of best days you will have.
Good luck to you and that cute little baby boy you have sitting inside you now.
