Hi!
If you were my patient, I would recommend a lot of walking--not a lot more or faster than you are cabable of easily, but keep it up.
The other thing that can help is intercourse--there are prostaglandins in the semen that are the same as the ones we use to induce labor (in MUCH lower concentrations of course), but it can help!
Good luck!
