Contractions or Braxton Hicks

31 Weeks 4 Days, 3rd Pregnancy.
I have never had BH before with my boys but for the last 6 hrs I have been having contraction like pains that are about 7 mins apart and last between 1-2mins. I have them like that for about and hr then they stop for an hr then they start again.
I have been loosing pieces of my mucous plug since last Thursday and today I had this discharge that was white and sticky (looked like ovulation discharge). I have also been having lots of pressure and crasmping since I started loosing my plug.
I go to see the doctor tomorrow was just looking for opinions, I know that if it does get worse I will be going right to the doctor tonight. But would like to hold off until tomorrow as it is a 2hr drive.
Thank you for your opinions.

I am having them again but they are still a bit apart and they aren't close enough to call or go the doctor. I am just looking for suggestions. Thank you :)

Hmm are they quite painful?  If they get to be 5 min
Consistently apart I would go in. But f they aren't too painful and keep coming and going I myself would probably wait till tomorrow too.  Good luck.
