Re: Painful contractions at 29 weeks.

I would definitely go in, if for nothing else just for peace of mind. If you're comfortable checking your own cervix, you can see if you're dilating at all. Since you've had 2 c/s, I wouldn't think you should be able to fit more than a fingertip in there, so if you can, I'd definitely go in.

Also, ask for a Fetal Fibronectin test. It tests for a protein that is only present if labor is fairly imminent. As someone who has had to be on labor stopping meds during a pregnancy, this is definitely a case of better safe than sorry!
