In brief: Consult Ob/Gyn
At term, you are getting close to labor when contractions are frequent and painful.
I you are intolerant of the pain, you need more rest, or consideration for delivery. This is a frustrating condition for patient and doctor. Continue fetal surveillance until a clear plan for delivery.
