Baby Dois, henceforth to be known as Stephen Thomas Campbell, arrived at about 9:15 this morning. He weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. and was 20 3/4 inches long. He is healthy and perfect and already nursing like a champ.
In comparison to my labor with Alex, which went on for almost 3 days, this one was a piece of cake! In fact, we barely made it to the hospital in time. They were just getting us settled in our room, and they told me to go change into a gown in the bathroom. I sat down to use the toilet, and all of a sudden, I realized I was pushing. I yelled out, "I'm pushing!" Rusty and two L&D nurses managed to get me to the bed, and Stephen was born with the very next contraction, before the doctor on duty even had a chance to get there. No time for a labor check, IV, nothing. I'm just glad we left the house when we did, or he would have been born in the car!
Pictures will follow soon. Thanks to everyone who prayed for a short and easy delivery for me -- I'd say God really answered your prayers!
