I'm freaking out... today was really hot and on our trip I gave all the drinks to my daughter. I know I'm dehydrated and I know I'm having contractions but they're too irregular to be the real thing so far. They are getting stronger as the night goes on and I'm worried; is there anything I should do besides drink water and lay down? I hate calling my doctor this late for questions, I just feel rude haha.

I'm sure your doctor would want you to call in a situation like this. Either call or got to the hospital and tell them what is going on. Maybe they can stop the contractions.

Thanks everyone, I held off calling, was able to get some sleep and woke up feeling 100% again.
