Terri Riehle was already happy that she was going to have her baby on August 9, 2010 -- 8/9/10. "I'm like 'Oh, easy! I won't get my kid's birthdays mixed up. 8/9/10. It'll be easy to remember, good to go!'" she said.
But her doctor, Dr. Peggy Heis, noted another interesting possibility. What if the baby arrived at 11:12?
But 11:12 a.m. came and went without a baby.
"Everybody was making bets and guesses on when she was going to come out," Scott Riehle said.
Just before 11 p.m., the labor started getting more intense for Terri.
"And baby popped out and I looked at the clock and there it was, 11:12. So some things are just meant to be," Dr. Heis said.
"She was set on that time. She wanted to be unforgettable," Terri Riehle said.
Ella Rose Riehle almost took the numbers game a bit further.
She weighed almost, but not quite, six pounds and seven ounces.
