So I have to ask cause this is playing on my mind.
A few weeks ago friends of ours had their first child a little boy. We vista then in the hospital and last weekend were invited over for a visit at home.
We asked how the birth was and the father said "oh I wouldn't know I didn't get to see it" apparently her labor was about 14 hours and at 12 hours he decided he was a bit tuckered and wanted to sleep in his own bed. Keep in mind the birthing suite had a sofa bed so he could of mapped if it was that bad but apparently it was too noisy with the nurses coming and going and the heart monitor.
Granted the midwife had told them they had at least4-6 hours to go and he was planning to be back in 3 hours, my friend just suddenly dialated quickly.
So my question is had anyone had this before? What are your thoughts? His wife just shrugged and had a laugh but you could of picked my jaw off the floor.
Before you say it - he is legitimately a really good guy. He is in no way a jerk.
He has been odd with timing like that though. Like if everyone was at a bar and dinner reservations were at 8 and it was seven and he was hungry - he would just order dinner and sit in the corner an eat it on his own. Wouldn't occur on him to wait the hour to eat with everyone else if that makes sense. Or sleeping was the same - he had us over before and just after lunch took himself off for a nap. We were like oh of your tired we will go home but his wife was like no please stay... Hour later he just comes back as picks up the conversation like he never left.
