Answer: Hello, It sounds like your waters may have broken and if this is the case then yes, you do need to be checked by a midwife and/or doctor. Having a "show" or losing the mucous plug is not so much a sign of labour onset but regular and progressive contractions and water loss (ruptured membranes) are both signs so you do need to be checked.
