Question To circumsize or not?

Hi, I don't know if this is the right board to post on, so I'll post it here anyway...I am pregnant with baby #2, and think this one may be a boy....my question is...my DH is not circumsized, and I wonder if I should or should not circumsize our baby if it does turn out to be a boy. I mean, I don't want him to feel embarrassed or inadequate in his teen years if he isn't circumsized and most of his peers are, but in the same aspect I don't want him to wonder why he doesn't look like Daddy. And I don't even know if I could put my baby through that pain...a friend of mine had her little boy done and I happened to go visit that same night...now I wish I hadn't because I ended up having to help her clean a messy diaper and saw how painful the procedure was, the poor little guy screamed during the entire diaper change and his little package looked so painful, I got tears in my eyes. My husband has never had any problems with hygeine because of not being circumsized, so I'm not worried about that...I don't know I guess I'm just curious what you think....I know this can be a pretty heated topic so please don't critisize me for wondering what I should or shouldn't do, because my first thought is not to put my baby through that pain, but I am just concerned with how he will feel about my decision when he grows up. Geez, this is going to be a hard choice.
