I am 41 weeks pregnant and am 80% effaced and 2 cm dialated as of Friday. My appointment isn't till Thursday but I have been having severe contraction pains since Tuesday, march 19th. Am I in an ok position to call my doctor ASAP about doing a possible induction? I'm in so much pain, I don't know how much more I can take.

I'd call the dr Bcuz maybe if they do a check ur hurting that much u may be in first stages of labor and inducing will help regulate the contractions. Good luck let us know
