I'm glad everyone is settling in. Three is hard, but hopefully your girls are great helpers.
I told my husband about your birth and he said that if we have another baby (which he knows I want to do at home) he'll get out his dad's catcher's mitt. I also have fast labors.
Well, we're still doing okay. DH is back at work (pilot and out of town) but my mom is here, so that's helping. I'm going to have my hands full when my mom leaves and DH is out of town again. I'm thankful that I've gotten lots of hot and frozen meals delivered from my Sunday School class at church. So, all in all we're doing well. Canon has been going back to sleep after most of his feedings at night the past three nights, so that's been great. He's finally back up to his birth weight of 8 lbs 5 oz as of Friday. We went to the birth center for a weight check and a check on my mastitis, which is doing much better, too.
DH and I are still thinking about whether or not to have C circ'd. I don't want to, DH does. We met with a pediatric surgeon our pedi referred us to, but he wants to put C under general anesthesia for the procedure. That doesn't make any sense to me because that's a risky thing imo. There is a retired pedi that my midwife gave me the number for and we may get in touch with him. I told DH that as long as he's done his research (and I've been sending lots of links) that I'll try to be supportive of whatever decision he makes. All that said, I get very emotional over the issue and cry and have bad dreams. We'll see what happens.
Sorry to hear you've been stressed about circ-ing or not. It must be difficult when each parent has a different desire on the issue.
