I can't decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing, or a no accomplishment thing.

After a huge fight and my "uphill battle w/ DH" post, we agreed, if we DO circ our son if he is a boy, he will be old enough for proper effective pain relief and it wont be at the hospital when he's born and a DR we both agree with.

I wont ever agree to it, PERIOD, unless he can say "yes" or "no" [and is over 18], or it becomes medically neccesary.

But how would you view that? Good, bad, nothing?

If your dh was previously completely FOR circumcising, and he is now saying he's willing to wait, I'd call that progress. Once he meets your baby and sees what a perfect and beautiful body he has, he may soften up big time! I hope so! Hang in there.

Yeah, he was and still is 100% for circumcision. And I think deep down, he knows what i'm saying is right, and once he see's the baby, if its a boy, and realizes a forskin isn't a disease or something. He'll change his mind. That and from what i've been told, almost no insurance companies cover circ's, and medicaid doesn't either, and the cheepest around here is $200+ which we don't have [the joys of where my mom used to work, LOL!].

I agree, it's progress...but, I'd be cautious about implying that you'll compromise and allow your baby to be circed if X conditions are met, unless you're positive they won't be able to be met. Does that make sense? You don't want something to come back and haunt you, with your dh saying, "Well, you said we'd circ if _________. You can't go back on your word." KWIM?

If you make the condition that he find one major medical organization that recommends routine infant circumcision or something like that-of course, he'll never be able to meet that condition and if he's determined to circumcise, it will definately get him researching, lol.

PS. Speaking of the money issue, check out my new siggy blinky.

That is my issue right now. I wont agree with circ, unles [1] he can make an informed decision on his own without other's influences. And i'll never agree with a DR that circ's [in fact one of them I know is hypocritical, says no point to it/no need, but to each there own], for any reason other than true medical neccesity.

I love the money thing! Its so the truth. I have much better things to spend $300+ on than to cut part of my kids body off, without medical indication.
