Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

it sounds like you might actually be in labor even though you have 'mild' contractions

Dr Owen :

So you do need to have a cervix check to see if you are dilating - so YES please contact your midwife to see if you really are in labor.

Dr Owen :

Pressure and pain in the pelvis especially since you are already a day over due is an indication of labor

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
