If amniotic fluid was 22cm at 33wks, could it have increased by 35wks and cause pre term labour? Should my ob been more attentive to this?

In brief: possible

Sounds like you had mild polyhydramnios at 33 weeks.
However, most physicians stop trying to stop preterm labor at 34 1/2 weeks, which is why it probably was aggressively stopped at 35 weeks.
