Right so, I'm 41+3 today and for the last 4 hours have been having contractions which followed on from constant back ache and twinges all of last night. My midwife said not to call the hospital until they were 5 minutes apart and lasted about a minute or more. For the last hour they've been every 5-6 minutes but only last about 30-35 seconds and I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to overreact and ring the midwife (I'm a first timer) but I also don't want to be giving birth on my bathroom floor 😂 Basically I'm just looking for some reassurance from someone or advice on if this is normal?
