Lorraina Fortine of Hutchinson said she was 39 weeks pregnant and scheduled to have a C-section Monday, but her doctor said she would not go into labor before then so she took a weekend camping trip with her family to celebrate her 3-year-old's birthday, KWCH-TV, Wichita, reported Tuesday.
However, Fortine said she woke up Saturday morning at Cheney Lake to find she was in labor.
"I was feeling OK," she said. "I was having a few small contractions took some Tylenol, went and laid down. Well, she started coming out! I had her inside the tent!"
Fortine said her daughter, Summer, was born weighing 7 pounds and 13 ounces.
Paramedics arrived and took mother and daughter to a hospital.
