Owen Marshall Compton
Well folks. He finally came yesterday at 1:39pm. We went in to be induced at 7am and they were crowded so we had to wait till our room was clean. They didnt actually start me on the pit till just after 9am. Labor went really smooth, and his heart rate didnt drop at all. Apparently Owen means lucky. Once he was born our doctor gasped and said, "wow did you see this?" he had a knot in his cord. Thank heaven for modern medicine and being able to be induced early. Who knows how long he could have had that knot, or how much longer he could have lived with it. The doctor said usually if there is a knot you have a still born. I was a lot more nervous with Owen. More worried about if he was going to have health problems, and I know there was angels watching over both of us. Everything went off without a hitch. And we now have a sweet little Owen Marshall to add to our family. We're now a family of 6 and I cant wait for my kiddos to get home from Grandmas to meet their new brother.
