Okay so I wanted to get opinions. I know we're only half way there, but with all the boys over taking the board this past week, has anyone else thought about circumcision?
Also I'd love to hear mommies who already have boys why or why they didn't have their boy circumcision.
DH is VERY insistent on getting our son (wow a son!) circumcised.
But I'm not totally convinced.
DH doesn't make many decisions...most of the time it's whatever I want (ha ha)...like 97% of the time. It's because most of the time he doesn't care. But this is something he really wants done. He said he believes since he is a man himself he should get to make the decision (what?!)
I know most of my friends who have boys got their boys done. There's one friend of mine who has a son but he's not, mainly because where he was born they wouldn't do it (weird huh?!) But she's not sure if she's wanting to get it done anyway, whereas her DH says he's getting it and even his mom will call her asking if she's gotten it done yet!!!
My thing is, I think it seems mean to get piece of his penis cut off (lol I make it sound horrible) just after he's born. Granted he won't remember the pain when he's older, but is it really necessary? And I mean it's not like I can say I got it done but not actually do it...DH will be changing diapers too lol. I guess if they put something to numb it I wouldn't feel as bad lol.
What are your views on it?
