Its sounds to me like it may be the early stages of labour. Very Happy

Id ring your midwife, and dont worry about what they say coz your most important thing is making sure you and baby is ok. Stuff them if your wrong, at least your mind will have been put at rest.

Good luck & let us know xx

def phone the hospital for advice. i had the same problem when i had my baby last week. i even went into hospital and was sent home cos "I was too early in the 1st stage to be admitted!" 8 hours later i was 5 cm dilated and needing some extra pain relief! the midwives will understand that ur confused cos it1s your 1st so dont worry about what they think about u, they have to deal with calls like your everyday!
