Annasophia Monica Marguerite

Annasophia Monica Marguerite was born at 1:09pm EDT on Monday, September 22nd, 2008 in Knoxville, Tennessee -- just two hours after the Autumnal Equinox. We had been planning to "induce" her the following day, but she had an earlier arrival in mind. So after regular contractions began at 3:00am, we arrived at the hospital by 8:00am.

However, baby Annasophia's shoulders were too large to pass through mom's pelvis. After about three hours of Pitocin, Annasophia's heartrate began to go down during contractions. So Renee's Ob/Gyn decided to bring her back to the O.R. for a Caesarian Section.

But all is well that ends well. She weighed in at 8# 6.2oz, 21" long, and a crown of 13-1/2". Though her birth was considered "urgent" (not "emergency"), her APGARs were 8 and 9.
