I second the antibiotics. Of the egg broke inside her, it could easily lead to a nasty infection. Just keep doing what you are doing. More warm baths, more lubricating, etc. During the bath, also massage her her from her belly towards her vent. That tends to help move things along. I have also heard of people making a small incision in the vent to enlarge it for the egg to pass, but you should probably only do that as a last resort and only if the egg is right at the vent.
