Wow. If i were 4 cm, 80% effaced (although I was much further along in the dialation than you) & my doctor wouldn't induce my labor, I'd probably be looking for another doctor! I remember when I was about 38/39 weeks pregnant. My doctor was going to induce my labor, but I opted to wait. What a mistake! Another doctor was on call when I decided that I would have my labor induced, but she wouldn't do it. Three days later, I went into labor, and I arrived at the hospital too late for an epidural. Now had labor been induced, I would not have been crying & screaming for my mommy; not a pretty sight, at the age of 40.

That really sucks, why isn't she more understanding? Maybe if you tell her exactly what is going on? Maybe cry? I don't know. My OB has agreed to induce me at 39 weeks if I make it that far. I am sorry you are having such a hard time. :o{
