Having lots of pressure and slight pain... labor?

For the past 2-3 days I have been having period like pains and lots of pressure and some slight contractions. I had a membrane sweep over 48 hours ago. These pains are constant and haven't let up, but aren't getting worse. Plus I've had other concerning things going on such as dizziness, nausea, headache... Etc. Can I go into the ER and ask to be induced? I don't know how much longer I can do this... Just want to speed things up a bit. I am 40 weeks and 2 days today.

P.S. for the people that are going to tell me that she will come when sh is ready... Just stop. Your wasting your time.

You can go ahead and go to the er, the diziness could be related to something else. Since your so far along chances are you dr will say okay to go ahead and induce.

Go to the ER. If you're not ready they will send you home but they may end up just keeping you and inducing.
