Is This The Start Of Labour

niki - December 7

i am overdue by 4 days, have lost my mucus plug over past few days, and was 1-2cm dilated 6 days ago. Yesterday i felt off side and nauseous, and felt constipated with backache. all through the night i had mild contractions every 30 min. today they have continued but at irregular times, they are now getting stronger, and paracetemol has helped the backache. But is this the start of labour or false labour (had contractions now for 19 hours-they are bearable) seem to start when i'am moving, although am getting some when resting-though not as often. I'am so confused. i can feel the contractions up my r___m and lower abdomen, my whole tummy tightens, but they only last 20-30 seconds. Any advice, would braxton hicks last as long?

Keep changing your position as often as possible (if laying down stand, if standing sit, if sitting walk around), empty your bladder as much as possible. Are you timing your contractions?
