When I thought I was in labor with my daughter I called L&D and the nurse told me to do this: fill the bathtub with warm water and get in. Drink a full (large) glass of water within the first 5 minutes, and then another full (large) glass of water in the following 20 minutes, all the while relaxing in the tub. If it is labor, your contractions will get more consistent and closer together. If it is not labor, they should go away. It is definitely worth a try, and will at least relax you some. Getting in the water is so nice when you feel so heavy from pregnancy!
