wasn't even something that we considered or discussed when we found out we were expecting a boy. to me its seems as strange as considering female circumcision so was always a non-event.
we then got our results from our scan and bub has slightly dilated kidneys - it normally resolves itself before birth or within the first 12mths, but at its worst it can cause UTI and if his foreskin is playing some role is preventing him from urinating medically it may sometimes be recommended.
it broke my heart honestly to even have this thought in my head; to have to remove some of him but FX it will resolve itself /be manageable and we won't ahve to even discuss medical circumcision.

There is no reason to remove ANY functioning, healthy part of the human body prior to a medical issue arising, 'just in case'. This includes gallbladders, tonsils, ears, labia, breasts and yes, foreskins as well.

Open and an internal organ is removed to the cutting off of a foreskin is bloody stupid .

I won't push my views on you - what I will strongly recommend though is to look up the procedure on U-tube and watch how it's performed (including your DH). If after viewing this you still want to go ahead, then that's your choice as the parents.

You offered your DH as an example as a pro-stance to the op, I offered myself as anti-stance to the op. I didn't not shove my opinion down your throat and I am glad you will discuss this subject with qualified medical people. I fail to see why you are getting upset over having an opinion challenged.
