36 weeks 2 days: Don't call us, we'll call you

I called the mohel last night, and we finally talked today. I am not optimistic right now. He said that he will have to do a conversion. Whatever. He also didn't sound too comfortable with the idea of doing OUR bris, regardless of my Jewish status. He said he was going to call me back, but I'm not holding my breath. He tried to make me feel better about the conversion by saying, "No one will know it is happening but you" but in reality, I'm the person whose feelings and thoughts matter most here. I recognize his attempts to make sure the baby is accepted as Jewish so he is spared this later, but I can be spared it right now, by using my OB and the reform rabbi.

I am disappointed, but in truth, kind of expected it. I guess we will be talking to the OB tomorrow.
