Since my DH and I have decided to have our DS circumcised once he is born, I decided to youtube a video of it. I have never seen one done, and I figured, "Well, if I'm choosing this for my DS, I should at least know how it is done, right?" Oh man. The video I found on youtube, while very informative, had the baby crying the whole time. It just broke my heart!! All I wanted to do was hold the poor thing and keep him from being snipped. Now all I can think about is how our DS is going to react to his circumcision. Should I be there to watch the circumcision as support for my DS? I'm afraid that if I get upset it will upset him more. Would you guys watch or opt out on the viewing of it?
Note: I will probably have someone flame me for even choosing circumcision, but after speaking with my DH and doctors, we are still going to have it done. So please don't try to convince me otherwise. TIA!
