Congrats to you and your family!

I had a similar slow labour experience, but the delayed time worked in my favor as I was in Canada attending University whille my SO was back home in Bermuda.

My water broke on Monday afternoon, Nurses sent me home and told me return on Tuesday at 4pm. I had a very slooowwww progressing labour and the contraction kicked in about 2am. I accepted any and every pain medicine that was offered and nothing helped. That was until I was given that shot of epidural.

For money reasons, SO didnt catch a direct flight (over $1200 ticket change as I was due in April and my son dedicded to come in mArch). SO overnighted in Boston for 1 night and hopped on the plane heading to Halifax at 2pm on the Wenesday afternoon.

I was so thankful for my friends who had supported me throughout the night, and even those who came to visit the next day only to be told I was still in labour. My son finally popped out at 3:15pm on Wednesday March 11, 09.  And unfortunately, SO missed the whole birthing experience by 10 minutes.
