Contractions every 20 mins for 13 hours

and although they are getting so painful now they are not getting any closer together. This is my 4th DC and I thought it might have been quick but I just don't seem to be progressing. The pain is but that's it.

I called the MW at the hospital and she said it was entirely up to me when I go in as I was aware of my pain threshold and body. I could go in and be put on a ward and DH be sent home. I've not been able to sleep as I wake up every 20 mins with the pain.

Should I call the hospital again? It is a 40 car ride away and I don't want to go there to be sent home. I'm so tired and really don't know what to do.
