Yes, sounds like she's fine now and is very close, her cervix is probably beginning to dilate. It's when she starts pushing and doesn't start having puppies that you get concerned and go in. If she's actively pushing and not producing a puppy for 1 hour, 2 hours max, go in. If she has a puppy and there's 4 hours pass and she's not having a second puppy, go in.
Always go in sooner rather than later....The earlier you catch dystocia (stuck pups or pups that are too big to pass), the better your outcome will be for mom and the pups.
Hopefully she will have them all with no problems!
