ledzepplon, I am having this, too! They don't always stop or stop completely when I get up, but most of the time they do. This has been going on for almost a week now. They're worse when I'm on my right side as opposed to my left or back as well. It's kinda annoying b/c it keeps me up at night, gets my hopes up!
I had this happen in labor with our fourth baby. The strange thing is that like you I only had contractions while lying down. When I would get up they would totally stop. After a long labor with a posterior birth, our daughter came out with the cord around her neck three times. I think my body instinctively knew what to do for her is all I can think. Her heart rate stayed strong the entire time though. A very strange way to labor, unlike any of my others. Try to listen to your body, as there is probably a reason for the way things are happening.
