34 weeks fingertip dilated 😳

Today I'm 34 weeks- been having a contraction every minute or so consistently for about two weeks- was checked last night and I'm a fingertip dilated and 40%. My doc wasn't very insightful- is this good? Still way too early? I'm assuming 40% effaced? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated! Feeling worried 😩
They gave me a steroid shot for his lung development and something to slow contractions down.Β
