Ouch!


I know childbirth's not exactly a rare biological phenomenon, so I'll try not to prattle on; suffice it to say we had a boy. All humility aside, at 9lb 13oz (4440g) I deserve a giant medal. The nurse for the 3-month scan wrote the gender on a scrap of paper and stapled it shut. The urge to look was strong for the first few days but soon wore off. Her '98% certain' proved 100% correct. Now, to discover his name.

Hi Flora, great blog and nice work (I had quick look in a rare quiet moment)! Thanks for the felicitations and also for reminding me there's an abbreviation for ounces.

You deserve a big medal, and a dear baby boy look forward to seeing you all in the summer defo coming round for a squeeze of his chubby legs. Congratulations to u both welcome to the word world of parenting !!

10? Really? And you did it twice? If the medals were real, I'd send you mine too!

Congratulations Lisa and Ed! 10lb must have stung somewhat. No gory details thanks, I may pass out. Hope you're all really well and happy, Kate xx
