You're not supposed to feel pain, but many women notice that contractions get stronger & more painful over time.
With concentration and acceptance (no fear), a woman might even feel zero pain. :-)
Contractions tend to start out like little practice braxton hicks and get bigger & more frequent. The tightening might start high and wrpa around the belly to the back. Usually moms will desribe a "menstrual cramp" feeling.
Please ignore the "4 centimeters" stuff, that information is not relevant to you~ just work on getting through all your other stuff. Whatever your cervix is doing (in numbers and percentages) will not help you now. You can avoid getting checked in the future, too.
