Sleep! It wont stop your labor if its real. You will need the energy...also they could have been off about your due date :)?

I think I'm going to. I don't know, I probably sound like an idiot, but I can't believe it's happening. With my son I was woken up by them and they hurt. This time I was just sitting there getting ready to watch a movie. Each time it hits the ten minute mark I think, "I'm not going to get one this time" but I do each time.

I would get sleep cause once u go in you won't get much more. Rest while u still can just in case. And if they do go away you're still early so it doesn't matter.

This. If you haven't gone in already, I'd say to drink some water and lay on your left side. If they don't go away or get different, then go in. It doesn't hurt to call right now and see what they'd like you to do.

I don't even know what's going on anymore. I've only been up for a little bit and I'm starting to time them again, though they woke me up on and off all night. I've no idea how consistent they are, though.
I'm also feeling really sick, though, and I don't know if I'm sick or if it's just pregnancy. I just posted another topic about it, actually. No idea what's going on with my OB's office since I woke up, ran to the bathroom with diarrhea and vomited stomach pile, and called about an hour ago and haven't gotten a call back. No one else seems sick so I don't know if I should be thinking it's food poisoning. I've had morning sickness the entire time and I know diarrhea is normal with labor, so I don't know.
I'm thinking of calling my OB back but our phone situation is awful. Our house phone is broken and our cell phone only works on the opposite end from the bathroom.

I'm still actually the same as I was before. Still having the contractions and they haven't gone anywhere. It has me exhausted, but I'm okay. Thanks for asking!
