I been having contractions about 5-6 mins apart now for about half an hour. They last about 30 seconds each. How many more of these should I time before I call the midwife?

Still haven't slept yet and been getting contractions since 12:30 am last night. It's now 6:42 in the morning and these contractions keep coming sometimes every 4,5,6 and 7 min apart. No I can't talk through them they hurt really bad. I also had some bloody show for the first time. I should mention that I am 4 days past my due date. I'm so tired but there is no way I can sleep through these ones. Any one have tips on how to sleep through early labour. I know these could go on for a while. Also this does sound like the start of labout right?

girl, have you called your midwife? I think you should go into hospital to be monitored, and see how far you are dilated and so on. They also offer you pain relief which could help you sleep. If you are not in labour, or they think you have a long wait then they will send you home. Good luck xxx

Hi girl, call the midwife, not all women get regular contractions during labor. My contarctions felt like a cramp for 12 hours, not that bad at all, and my midwife came to my home to check on me and I was 8cm, I could talk through all the cramps, so my midwife did not believe that I was in labor on the phone.
