I'm 39 weeks and I've dilated 3 cm. What else can I do to speed up the process?

Walking, sex, nipple stimulation and more walking.

Drink castor oil... really nasty but speeds things up !!!!!

Don't drink castor oil, too much stress can be caused on your body and its not worth the possible risks. Walking up the stairs steadily helped start contractions for me. Also lots of walking, sex (with orgasm), nipple stimulation and bouncing on a yoga ball.
