well, it will get ready on its own, but with my second I did take some homeopathics that helped... I dont' remember that names, sorry :( and also evening primerose can help, red raspberry tea leaf can help strengthen your cervix.
You can't. It readies itself when you're in labor - that's what labor is all about is your body readying itself to get the baby out.

your cervix IS ready for labor. trust your body, that's the best thing you can do :) if you are worried about dilation, don't. i was just half a centimeter at my last prenatal appt and then i had my son 3 days later.

There is a hormone in semen that can help ripen your cervix, so sex is a good "helper" (and fun!). Ultimately, though, your cervix will open when the time comes. Your body will know what to do, you just have to trust it! =)
