|Stalled Labor .. Again??

Last night, around 1:00am I noticed my contractions were coming pretty close together (I've been in prelabor for over a week, so I'm used to having them), so we decide to time them. For nearly 2 hours, they were under 5 minutes apart, most of them being 2-3 minutes apart, and lasting for a minute.|
They were pretty ouchy, but didn't get to a point where I wanted my mommy or anything. Since it was nearly 3:00am by then, my husband suggested we try to get some sleep. I really didn't want to, and end up losing my "progress", but I knew staying up was stupid, so I just hoped they would get stronger while I slept. No dice :(
It's now 8:00am and I can't sleep because I'm so anxious! I'm still having contractions, though their intensity has died down a little. I should probably keep trying to sleep, but I can't help feeling cheated! This is the second stalled labor routine I've been through! Part of me wants to give in and try all the tricks (walking, sex, bouncy ball, etc), but I hate getting my hopes up.
Help me, ladies. What should I do???
