Your first baby they may have to break ur water no matter how much walking around you do. The hormones in male sperm can thin your cervix but not a sure thing. I have be 50% effaced at station 0 for 3 weeks they told me they will have to break my water after my Due date and most first time pregnancy this Is what they have to do.

5 hours of walking wont hurt the baby.  If anything it'll just make baby sleep cause of the motion.
