Early labour!?

I was told this morning that i was having early labor symptoms. Meaning that my contractions were 8 minutes apart!?  
Do you think i will have my baby like in the next 24 hours!?
Also i went to l&d because i thought my water broke but it wasn't my water. Help someone!?

Keep track on contraction on how many minutes are they. And be ready in any case. What week are you?

Good they should get painful. Just keep moving stay active. Its a good sign that baby is on its way when contractions are under 5 minutes apart and you cant walk or talk through them. Are you timing them with a contraction timer? It will make it so much easier if you download an app
