So I started having contractions at 4:00 AM, they were 45 seconds long and about 4 min. apart.  I took a shower and they moved to about 1 min. long but 6 min. apart.  I did a self cervical check and  can feel something roundish and bulgey, but I don't think it feels like the water sac.  Can anyone tell me what that might be?

 

And how close together should the contractions normally be before getting into the birth pool?
