    I think so long as they are irregular and not very painful it is likely you will be told to wait.
    I have been getting what you describe on and off all week - sometimes the cramps are constant for a few hours, then they go away for a while.
    I think they will probably tell you to wait until the pain is in a regular pattern with contractions coming at regular intervals. If you're not sure though or are worried, no harm in giving them a quick call for some advice. Good luck!
