  • your body will if it's ready. you can walk as much as possible and it may help your cervix dilate/soften, but not guaranteed. there is no sure fire way to dilate your cervix.

  • Contractions. There's no way you can until your body is ready.

  • The same way you went from zero centimeters to one.
    Nature has it all figured out, of course!

    You can stop getting your cervix checked if it's making you wonder~ it's optional (and invasive!), not generally very helpful...
