hello ladies. i am 9 weeks pregnant with my second child. my first son is from a previous relationship, so this is my husband's first :) we're so excited. the only thing is...he really wants to cut the umbilical cord when the baby is born. my problem is, i am going to be having a c-section, and him cutting the cord makes me really uncomfortable. i don't know if i want him seeing me all sliced open like that, mostly because i'm afraid he won't be able to andle it & freak out. if he freaks out, i'll freak out and i don't want to freak out! i'm going to be lying there trying not to think about being sliced open, so for him to go all pale & pass out/puke/etc. or say anything at all to make me panic would kind of ruin that for me. but he says he really wants to do it, and it's been a touchy subject. i got mad at him and said NO but now i'm not sure....should i let him even if it makes me really uncomfortable? what would you do?
