Contractions and then nothing. Is he near??

So I'm currently 40 + 4 with my first baby.
I woke up at 3 with contractions every 10 mins.
Went and had a bath. Had contractions in the bath. (They say they're real if they last throughout a bath).
Got back to bed and they were every 5-6 minutes and lasting about a minute each so called the hospital. She said if the pain was too bad to go in otherwise to go back to bed and call when they're every 3-4 minutes. 
Went back to bed and fell asleep. Just woke up and nothing. Grrrrrr
Does this mean I'm close? Is something likely to happen today?!
