Pretty urgent...never have gone into labor on my own this it?!

Earlier I posted a question about some back pain, wondering if it could be back labor, but now I am having contractions. Some are much stronger than others, and they are ranging between 2-3 mins and 4-6 mins.

I have written down the times as follow:

12:18, 12:22, 12:26, 12:32, 12:37, 12:39, 12:41 (just now!)

It has only pretty much been since midnight that they have been going on.

How long did you wait? I have an hour drive and would have to wake up the kids, take them to my cousins in the middle of the I don't really want to have it not be real. LOL...then again, I don't want to deliver in the car either.
