Is this contractions? Read Description

Every 4 or so minutes I have a sharp pain for a few seconds then it fades away. It makes my uterus feel hard, like a tightening. I have a laminaria placed in for my d&c tomorrow, and doctor said the laminaria may cause me to go into labor instead. What do I do if it is contractions??? It's bearable but very uncomfortable
