Braxton Hicks...or more than that??

I have had BH contractions through out the day (four times in the last 6 or so hours to be exact). However, two of them came in the last hour and a half and I have also started feeling cramps in my lower abdomen that are just about steadily there instead of coming and going like the contractions would. Depending on the doctor you ask I am between 28 and 30 weeks pregnant. Is there a possibility that these are just increased braxton hicks, or could I possibly be going into premature labor? When will I know to call the L&D?
