QOTD 8/15

Since we are all respectful ladies I figured we could ask some of the more controversial questions as well...

Are you for or against circ'ing?

Hubby is pro-circ I am not. I just don't see the point in doing it when it is not harmful to them. I see no point is causing pain at a day old for a cosmetic procedure that isn't necessary to the health of my baby. I'm slowly changing hubbys mind about this (: I really hope I get him on the anti- circ wagon if this little bundle is a boy!

We circ'd Ronan so we will if the next is a boy. DH is, so that helped make the decision, but also the cleaning aspect. I know it's not hard with un circ'd, but it was just the right decision for us. I do have to say that seeing him afterwards and taking care of it for a week or so was so hard emotionally! I really don't think its something that is worth the arguments that some boards have about it- some people get so heated it's like they're out for blood! To each their own, right?

We circ'd our first son and will not do it again. I have changed my views on it since having him. I just think it is a pointless procedure to do (unless done for religious reasons). I have even watched a couple be done (when I was in nursing school) and is quite horrific in IMO. My hubby is not quite on board with the NOT circing but I know I can change his mind. It also helps that we won't be having this babe in a hospital so we won't have the choice to get it done right away. I am just NEVER putting a baby through that again. I do respect everyone has their own beliefs about it and would never think badly of someone that did circ. I just cannot have it done to my baby again.

We're non-circing here. My son isn't and comparing cleaning his peep to my nephew's when they were babies, uncircumcised is WAY easier. You clean it like a finger, no ridge to clean off. DH is wildly against it, too and he is. I think he got mad when he read that that tiny little bit of skin has thousands of nerves in it that makes sex a whole lot more enjoyable. LOL

DH and I won't be circ'ing if it's a boy. DH is not circ'd, so we'll be keeping all our bits intact, lol! Wink

We are against it. DH is but DS isn't and if this baby is a boy he won't be either. There isn't any reason medically to get it done and all surgery has some risks so we decided against it

both our boys are circ'd for various personal/family history reasons. if this is a boy he will be as well. i am very much for everyone making their own decisions that they feel are best for their child.

We are not circ’ing. My husband is but after much research we decided against it with my son and we didn’t know the sex so it was great that we were set against and not undecided when the time came. I think we were asked 4 times in the hospital if we were circ’ing him and one girl was even “Oh good, we were worried we missed one!”

We thought to do it just so he’d look like my husband wasn’t a good enough reason to put him through that pain and risk of infection. It can turn out badly where they take too much and they have pain and issues as adults. I hope he’s proud that we didn’t circ him when he’s older. The cleaning hasn’t been a problem at all and my friend who did circ her son has been to many visits at the Dr because of red/irritated penis.

I'm really not sure I am stuck on the fence here. DH is done but to be honest we haven't even discussed it at all. I think once the baby is born we will decide then I we by chance get a little boy.
