    Between our three hospitals in the capital city in Alabama, our New Year's baby was born at 0830. Pretty late in the day I thought!!

    Ours was born to a G11P9 methamphetemine user with all other children in CPS custody. They failed to mention that info on the news though.
    That sucks!!! BIG TIME!!! Cases like these should be screaming mandatory permanent sterilization!!!!

    The first baby on our county was born in the county hospital downtown, generally known as the hospital where all the druggies and indigent patients go. I didn't see her interviewed on the news, although they usually do interview. She must not have been TV material. I think the paper said the baby was born at about 0030. They usually get the first baby because of their volume of births, though, unless someone schedules a C/Section fo midnight at one of the other hospitals. I've seen it happen! Some people will do anything to be on the news! :roll

    We had a term, no distress FTP c-section delivered at 2357 on the 31st...

    I thought, you know... couldn't the doctor just have waited until 0000 and 1 second? Why couldn't he have? You know? Hell, I wasn't at the delivery, maybe mom wanted a Decembre 31st baby.

    We are still waiting for our 2003 baby, my niece is due with twins on the 15th and no others in sight so maybe she will be it. Our hospital is a 15 bed hospital in rural Kansas so there you go.

    The parents probably begged him to deliver before midnight. "Welcome to the world, my beautiful little tax deduction!" :chuckle

    Ours was at 02:30am. Usually it's earlier than that, but it was a slow night I was told.

    Ours was at 0525. First in the county and outlying areas.
    One year we had to wait for half the month before ours was born.
    We are a small hospital also.

    Did you see on the news about the twins that were born at 2357 on the 31st and 0014 (approx) on the 1st...how does that work for taxes....??????

    My guess is that the child born on the 31st will be able to be claimed as a tax deduction, and the other child will have to wait until next January to be "claimed".
