Honestly, I don't know. I'm don't want it and DH does. I'm not sure what we will do, but we decided to not talk about it until we found out. With DD we had several unnecessary fights about it, so I'll let you know around 25 weeks

Yes. We're Jewish and following tradition. We had a Mohel (in the Jewish tradition a person who is certified to perform the procedure but doesn't have to be a Rabbi), but we chose someone who is also an M.D. (urologist & surgeon) do it. DS cried from being held in place, but after the procedure, went right to sleep as if nothing happened. We did ask he use a local anesthetic.

The procedure wasn't covered by insurance but was important for us it be performed by an expert because of horror stories we read.... Results are excellent as per several pediatricians.

Other than the religious view, our son has mild hydronephrosis (left kidney takes longer to clear urine, which thankfully is getting better) which puts him at higher risk for UTI's. Being circumcised makes it a little easier to keep things clean which is even more important for him than normally.

Other than that, it's a personal choice. Whatever u decide, better sooner than later.

I had /have no opinion about this but my boyfriend is not and thought that we should not circumcise our son, so we didn't. If this baby is a boy, we won't circumcise him either.

DH is not, so if we ever have a boy, he will not be either. I'm pretty much in the line of thought that he'll be able to show our son about cleaning and taking care of it, etc. so it's never been a discussion, just a given. My sister circ'd her baby boy though and before I met DH, I never really thought much about it. It really is a personal preference I think.

Nope, we wouldn't. When we were pregnant with our first (which ended up being a girl anyway, lol) he was adamant he wanted a baby circ'ed... Until he researched it and was appalled. DH is, but I guess they did something weird b/c it messed him up.

my husband and I have decided that we're not going to circumcise because he wasn't and we're not Jewish. I have read and experienced that men who are circumcised have less sensitivity during sex. All you have to do is keep it clean.

Besides, having an uncircumcised husband, I think that his "manhood" looks alot more attractive than men who have theirs circumcised.

Ultimately, it's your preference!
