38 weeks and cervix still closed😞😢

Please help me. I'm a FTM and I just got checked for my 38 week appointment and it hurt like hell for some reason but my cervix is still closed. What is going on. I live a little far from my hospital and I have a history of fainting during my pregnancy. I don't want to go past 40 weeks which I'm sure they won't let me but how can they induce me if my cervix is closed. I'm so confused. What can I do
