Im 30 weeks and 3 days and all weekend i've been having contractions. Even when i was sleeping, they actually woke me up. My next appt is tuesday but should i go in tomorrow instead? Cant go now because im babysitting and the kids are sleeping and its pouring out right now. Also I've been having back pains and cramping =/

 Call your Dr & see what they say, they should give you somethings to try before they have you come in. I've never had contraction that early so I don't know exactly what to do.

You may want to give your doc/midwife a call.  Hope all is well.

If this were me, I would do everything I could to get them to go away.
That might mean really hydrating, eating healthy snacks, resting, walking, showering/bathing, more hydrating.

How many children do you have already?
Did you have intense braxton hicks with them?

15-20 mins apart isnt close enough for labor, but they may be causing you to dilate and efface, which can be good bc its less you will have to do when the real labor starts, but i would go ahead and give your dr/midwife a call if it would make you feel better. and watch them to make sure they dont start getting closer together and stronger....

try to drink a lot of water and pee often. if you are dehydrated, or hold your pee too long and your bladder gets too full, you will have more contractions
