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. :)

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.
