Contractions + preterm labor?

On Sunday I went to the hospital at exactly 32 weeks to be checked for dehydration. Turns out I wasn’t dehydrated, but I was dilated to a 1 and was having cramps on the monitor without even feeling them! After two hours of monitoring, I was 2 cm dilated and 60% effaced, so they admitted me right away and started me on Procaria to stop the contractions. I didn’t dilate any more after that but they did give baby steroids for her lungs over the two nights I was there. Now, for the past 3 days that I’ve been home, I’ve been having sharp pains in my pelvic area and pretty strong contractions throughout the day. However, they’re irregular so I dismissed them as Braxton Hicks. But it seems like at night they become regular starting around 7 pm, I’ll get them every few minutes and they’re pretty strong!! Should I be worried? I have no idea if what I’m experiencing is changing my cervix or not. I don’t want to have this baby yet :O
