What is going on? Slowest labour ever?!

After having strong BH for over 24 hours I started timing them this morning - a very regular every 20 mins & lots of lower back pain.
I called the assessment unit as I was a bit worried - I'm only 35 weeks - and after lots of waiting and monitoring etc they told me I'm 2cm dilated and my waters were bulging. So I was admitted and now I've been in hospital for about 12 hours.
I was last monitored about 6pm and contractions then were every 10 mins. I've been trying to get some sleep now but every time I do I either get a contraction or someone presses their alarm.
They do seem to be slowly creeping closer together but it's really not what I would call painful.
This is nothing like my first birth, I'm not even sure I'm in labour. What will happen if they check me in the morning and I'm no more dilated but still contracting? I'm so confused!
