Welcome to the world........

.... my gorgeous baby Brandon. Just a quickie as I haven't much time but as soon as I have i'll tell you girls all about his birth. He was born at 11.25pm on Thursday 15th July weighing 6lbs 7oz.
He is absolutely amazing and his Daddy and I are over the moon. Still feel very sad when I think of what should have been with Ryan, but I can't help but smile inside and out when I see and hold my beautiful baby, who I am so thankful for beyond words.
Had to stay in hospital until tea time Sunday due to the group b strep. I was given one dose of antibiotics in labour, but because he was born on the Thursday at 36+6 he was classed as premature and so he had to be given antibiotics and had some tests done which took 48hrs for the results. Its crazy, if he had come on the Friday, just one day later he would have been classed as term and they would have just observed him for 24hrs.
I can't tell you what it felt like to give birth to Brandon and to hear him cry. I broke my heart. The silence after I gave birth to Ryan was soul destroying.
Wanted to say thankyou to you all for your kind words and advice over the last few months. You have all really helped me when no-one else could. I hope you are all well and I will try and post a proper BA as soon as I can. Look forward to talking with you all again very soon.
Take care, lots of love, Kathryn xxx


  • Oh lovely, congratulations I really am over the moon for you. Brandon, what a gorgeous name and god I can not wait to hear the cry at the end of labour. It must have been an incredibly emotional experience on so many levels and I'm just so pleased it's resulted in a beautiful baby boy at home with you.
    Take care of yourself and congratulations again x
