They'll ask you how far apart they are and how long they're lasting. Time them for an hour first.

start to time them and if they are regular and depending on how far away from hospital you live you may want to get things ready sounds to me like it could be the real thing if they are constant I would leave your house if they are 5 mins apart or closer unless you live far away and maybe call L&D to let them know...good luck mama

right now it seems to be constant. how can i time them if not constant?

If the cramps worsen, go in. For now it sounds like typical end of pregnancy pains. Body getting ready for labor and whatnot.
