Baby's weight gain plateaus/slows down in the final weeks...google it, I don't have a link for you, but the baby doesn't just keep packing on weight indefinitely! That's the good news!
And for the contractions, look at the bright side; when you do go into labour, you will be fresh as a daisy and well-rested from not having any prodromal labour (which sounds like it would be awful, but at the same time seems to serve a purpose = shorter labour? I don't really know)
Maybe take a walk, then come home and put your feet up and see if that helps with the swelling. It will at least take your mind off things for a bit...
