Walking & sex are really the most natural because it's something a mom would be doing naturally, anyway. Other things like foods, herbs, etc. are less gentle.
Sounds like nothing is working because your body is probably fighting to keep baby in there.
Like you said, babies come when they are ready. Nothing wrong with continuing to respect baby's needs, right?
You can try many things, but can decrease your stamina and confidence when/if they don't work. (And many aren't likely to work because you body is obviously not ready enough.)
Many things do have risks so be sure you're asking your doctor/midwife before trying anything.
