Early labour starts

At 1.00am, i started getting painless braxton hicks. I started timing them, and i was writing it down everytime i was getting them. They were irregular. After about an hour, i said to my husband, ''i am going to bed now, they are not regular and i am tired'
I switched off the light, we both got into bed to sleep. About 10 minutes later, i started getting a period like pains and a contraction. It was getting more painful as time went by. I rang the hospital and they said to come in so i can be checked over.
By 4.00am, i went to the hospital with my husband and told the midwife at the labour ward of whats been happening. She gave me an internal examination and a membrane sweep. [OH BOY DID THAT HURT]. She said that i have not dialated yet and my cervix has started to soften. She said that i am in early labour.
After i went home, i had painful contractions all night. At 8.00am, they eased off and stopped. I made an appointment to see the midwife tomorrow, [29th January 2009]. I was fine for the rest of the day.
