I began lurking the moment I found out I was pregnant (a big surprise!), and figured it was time to post, as I've been so encouraged by the discussions here.<br><br>
I'm due in November with my first, and hoping for a midwife-assisted homebirth. In the meantime, I've been reading all the AP, breastfeeding, and natural childbirth books I can get my hands on.<br><br>
My husband and I live in Denver, but we'll be moving back home to Los Angeles in several months. At 4 or 5 months along, that should be interesting...!<br><br>
Happy to be here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Welcome to Mothering and congratulations on your pregnancy! If you've been lurking for awhile, you probably know your way around pretty well, but if you haven't already, please do come down to the Case Against Circumcision board - lots of very important information there for parents-to-be.<br><br>
Glad you found the boards (and decided to de-lurk).

Again, as a lurker you are probably savvy, but do check out your DDC in the Pregnancy board. It's a great way to get to know a small portion of the community really well.

Welcome and congrats to you, too!<br><br>
If you start your own introduction thread and ask your questions, some of us can point you in the right direction for the forums you might find most interesting!

Thanks, I definitely will. I've decided circumcision isn't something I would ever do to our boys, but my husband is convinced he should "look like the other kids in the locker room." As we'd planned to adopt (slightly older children), I didn't think it would be an issue; DH was happy to leave the boys as is. But the possibility of having a baby boy changes things, so I need to study up. Seven more months to convince the husband...<br><br>
And hi Cassie! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hola.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hola">: This is a great resource for all of our pregnancy questions--I feel like I've learned loads already!

one good way ( i think ) to explain is to say - well, it's no different then having a different nose or eye color. no two people are the same, yk. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Circumcision is a difficult issue for most circumcised men...but most will also come around, when they are given full information about what circumcision is and does (although that info can be hard to hear/take in, so it needs to presented gently).<br><br>
There are lots of Moms in CAC who have been in your position (have a dh they need to convince), so we can definitely help out!
