late to the party here, but Gabriel Keith arrived three weeks early on 11/26/11... I had another positive, unmedicated hospital birth (my fourth!). We're thrilled to have 2 girls and 2 boys now. :)


Birth story is here:



DH Collin


DD Elanor (8), DS William (5), DD Violet (3), DS Gabriel (1), DS Peter (born Oct. '13)

Noel (12/06) and Christian (03/09), always in my heart

Love your birth story!  I can very much relate to the "I can't get on the bed" feeling.  That is exactly what happened with #3-- I was in the shower and realized I wanted to push . . .barely made it to the bed and was in the same hands/knees position when the MW/DH helped me up.  It was the best because she came out so easily that way but I would never have planned it.


I love the part about the L/D nurse, too!  How sweet! 


Gabriel is too adorable!  Congrats to you all.
