You may be in labor or may not be. Preterm birth is termed when a baby is born before 37 completed weeks.

A cervical dilatation of 3cm or more with frequent uterine contractions is a good sign showing that you are progressing into the first stage of labor.

I do not think you are in active labor now. A complete assessment of Bishop's score is required in you. A bishop's score of >6 is favorable. Please ask your midwife about your score.

Hope this helps.
