I finally took an appointment to get it done. He will be 3 months old... I'm scared and I don't feel well about it. I wouldn't get it done at all if it weren't for my husband and his culture but I know it would never work to not get it done... And I guess for my son's well-being, I would rather he get it done as a baby than as a toddler in Egypt or something.

I don't want him to feel any kind of pain and I'm worried about hurting the most precious thing I have in this world (Nora is equally precious of course but not affected by getting circumcised thank Goodness).
I hate to feel so forced about this. I don't believe it's medically necessary and to operate on my baby because of something I feel is nothing more than cultural hurts me. But for him it's not cultural, it's religious. There's just no way out of it for me. One plan was to tell him I had it done and figure he'd never notice, but it would be awkward when he found out. Imagine the teenager thinking all his life he is circumcised and looks it up online or reads about it in school and is like, WTF?! Tells his dad, who is also like, WTF?! Anyway...
