Doctor: Hello,If you are already 3 cm dilated then you have entered into active labour with active regular uterine contractio ns.As your pains have been increasing gradually, it is likely that you are experiencing a preterm labour and a possible impending delivery.Please visit ER as soon as possible.Regards,
