How is everyone else?

Then, Tuesday around 5pm I had a horrible tummy upset and, well, let's just say I emptied out
Contractions picked up, strong, and between 7-10min apart.
I was a little concerned, and asked DH if we could run a few errands. We got towels and washcloths and sheets at a discount store--the last of the things we wanted to have on hand for the birth. While out, the ctxns were 2-5min apart.
We came home, and I took a brief bath. It slowed the ctxns down a little. We watched a movie and DH made me a weak drink. I haven't been timing the ctxns since; I think they are about 10-15min apart.
Now it is one in the morning! I'm tired but also antsy and stuffed up (ugh, sinus allergies) and unable to sleep! If this is it, I really don't want to be up all night and exhausted when things actually get going.
I think I will drink a tall glass of ice water and use the neti pot and PRAY for sleep. UGH.
