A pregnant woman's quick stop at a Greenfield, Iowa convenience store on the way to the hospital didn't go as planned.

Abbie Hinrichs stopped at Casey's General Store about 2:30 a.m. Thursday to use the restroom. Hinrichs told the clerk she was in labor and was headed for the Creston hospital. Minutes later, the baby arrived.

Store employee Amanda Teas said Hinrichs "was calm as could be."

Teas ran outside to tell Henrich's mother, husband and son, who were in a car. Medics soon arrived and took Henrich and baby to the Adair County Hospital.

The family says Addison Nicole Hinrichs weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces. She and her mother are doing fine.
