If you are having contractions (not really sure if they are contractions) but they aren't regular, should you go to l&d after 24 hours or when?

In brief: Now

This is an impossible diagnosis to make via the internet.
You should go to l&d now so that you can find out if these contractions are changing your cervix or not. You didn't say where in your pregnancy you're at, but at any point, preterm labor needs to be ruled out for your and baby's safety. It might seem like a waste of time if you get sent home, but i guarantee the information will be help!
