DS was circumcised. In our area of the country, it is very uncommon not to circ and that was a big consideration for DH. I went with him on the decision. I won't go further than that on the reasoning etc.

I think the actual circ was way more traumatic for me than for DS. I didn't even go with him for the procedure. The doctor said he would be topically numbed and given Tylenol. The Tylenol made him sleepy and made me stress out about breastfeeding for a few hours. I also hated that I had done something to alter the perfect little angel that I was blessed with. We will still circ DS2. I think it will be easier for me this time just because I won't be as stressed out about nursing and all that. However, I still struggle with this decision. I think it is the right one for our family though.

ETA: Also, my insurance did pay for it (minus copay of course).
