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 (11), DS William (8), DD Violet (6), DS Gabriel (4), DS Peter (2), new baby due 1/27/17

Noel (12/06), Chris (03/09), Francis (06/15), and Jude (10/15), always in my heart

Yay Joanna! I'm so glad you had a positive birth experience. Welcome little Gabriel :)

Married to my love, mama to twin boys J&O (6), and expecting # 3 this December!

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.
