I was induced at 38 weeks also. I was "strongly encouraged" to have the epidural as my blood pressure was rising. I agreed but it only gave me half a block and it wasn't worth being stuck in bed for half a block. So i had it removed and continued on just gas and air with one shot of morphine. It was uncomfortable but I just focussed on my breathing and I can honestly say it was manageable. Unlike a natural labour, the contractions come hard and fast from the get go - theres no getting used to them. But hey, you have to get to the strong contractions eventually!!
Best of luck and I hope your little girl is fighting fit when she arrives x
