Spicy food, walking and sex are good ways to move things along........ If you still havent changed by next week your ob might be able to to strip your membranes (all depends on the ob)

Sex....the prostaglandins help soften your cervix.  I actually was not dilated what so ever at 40 weeks.  I ended up going into labor 2 days after my due date and only started dilating then.  And once I started that was it!!!!  I was effaced though.  Did they say if you are effaced at all?

You can try walking an such, but unless baby is ready nothing will put you into labour. You can stay 1-3 cm dilated for weeks with no change.

Just keep in mind that there are some pretty big benefits to hanging on until 39 weeks (although that is easier said than done). So when baby decides he/she is ready you'll start picking up progress. Hang in there :)

I didn't dilate with my daughter until 41 weeks exactly and of course it was the day I was set to be induced......but man, when I started dilating and getting those contractions, it all went into overdrive and happened really fast.  It really is so uncomfortable those last few weeks, but hang in there.

With my first child I only dilated to 1cm until I started active labor at 38 weeks. It was a quick and easy delivery. My second child I had braxton hicks contractions for months prior to birth and was dilated to 3cm but eventually was induced after my due date. Every pregnancy is different. Hang in there. Good luck :)
