Latent labour? For days

I’m 35+4 with baby number 5 and for 12 days I’ve had period like pains, pressure in my bum and the worse very painful contractions. They come and go and can last a few hours at a time. Last night the contractions came every 5 minutes and last over a minute but have gone again now. My midwife said it could be latent phase of labour but wasn’t worried. Gone full term with all other babies but it’s 10 yrs since my last and this baby is with a different partner. Any advice please
