See below...: Labor is defined as regular contractions that are changing your cervix. At 32 weeks, it is not necessarily normal to be dilated, and hopefully your doctor has addressed any concerns about preterm delivery. If you are not clear on when to call them, then call them now and get this clarified.

labor is defined by regular contractions with cervical change. It is normal to be 3-4 cm before going to the hospital. 1cm is very normal for 32 weeks
