I had back labor so I'm not really sure what the early contractions are meant to feel like. I just had wicked back pain. I'd be timing them just in case, some people don't really feel the contractions and don't know they're in labor until baby's coming out lol. If the nurses said you were contracting though I'd be inclined to think that you were getting close, especially since you're past your due date.
