"It was shocking, because there's not going to be another 12-12-12," Insogna said.

Brenda Robbins, Insogna's mother, said her daughter was extremely nervous going in.

"Well she wasn't too happy to give birth, period," She joked. "It was her first time ..."

"It felt like it took forever," Insogna said.

Hartz said two other women had gone into labor Wednesday, but they had not given birth until after midnight. Wednesday was a slow day for the birthing center, according to Hartz.

Dec. 12, 2012, using the Gregorian or Christian calendar, is the last concurrent date for almost another century. The next time three numbers will align as they did on 9-9-09, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 will be on Jan. 1, 3001, or 1-1-1.

Jerri Cortese, spokeswoman for St. Mary's Hospital in Amsterdam, said that St. Mary's also had two births Wednesday - two girls, born at 3:54 a.m. and 9:22 a.m.
