There is nothing you can do that will guarantee you will dialate, except wait because you body will do this typically on its own when you are closer to labor. At 37 weeks it is not uncommen to not be dialted at all or only a little dialated. A lot of people will swear by walking and keeping active as you let gravity aid in bringing the baby down and getting into a good position. Be patient your day will be here soon.

Don't worry about dilating just yet. It doesn't really mean that much. When I was pregnant with my first I was in labor for 25 hours and dilated to a 2 until I rolled over and then I was at a 9. I had my little girl an hour later. It just depends on your body. Good luck :)
