    Ugh. I think it is unnecessary, and I understand the ethical arguments against it, but I think, as a woman, it is more asthetically pleasing, and I don’t want to impact his future sex life negatively. Sooo…I don’t know. Fiance is, but FBILs are not. I might just need to get their honest perspectives on it.

    Yes, we’ll do it before we leave the hospital.  We’ve done the research on why it’s not medically necessary and the possible complications of doing/not doing it.  I feel pretty good about our decision to circumcize.

    The Mister and I are really in agreement on this one. Definitely at the hospital before we leave.

    I’ve never heard of NOT doing it.  So, yes.

    No, we both consider it genital mutilation, and there is significant evidence that it is unnecessary.

    I don’t know since I’m not pregnant yet, it will probably be another year before we try. My FH is not circumised so he believes that a baby boy should not be circed. I on the  other hand I’m not sure. I will say that my baby nephew’s boy part looked like raw meat after the procedure was done in the hospital.

    i understand the ethical arguments, but I feel like a little boy would want to look like their father.  At least around here, it’s very common, and i wouldn’t want to cause future stress or heartache. I know that someday the person may be upset that it was done, but i think that the chances of that are SO much tinier than the hurt feelings about having body parts different than his family and peers.

    I voted not sure since it’s not really something I’ve researched (and I wont be researching it until I actually get pregnant and it’s confirmed that we’re having a boy lol). My husband is, and I think my brothers are. I know there isn’t much of a medical reason, but I wouldn’t want him to feel self consious about it or anything. I think in this case, my husband’s opinion would have a little more weight to it than mine since I can’t really relate so I think he’ll kind of get the final decision with this.
