Should I go to the hosptial ?

Patient

Q: Hello, I am 39 weeks and 6 days pregnant with my second child. Last night I started to have consistent contractions at about 2-4 min long and 4-5 apart for over an hour but the intensity only reached a pain leave of a 5 then after all that time went down to a 1-2. I went to bed thinking if I was in labor I would wake up if the pain got worse. I woke up at 2pm to use the restroom and found that I have consistent cramping but NO "show" and water has not broken. What do I do?

Symptoms:  Cramping and contractions
