I was 4 cm for 2 weeks with continuous contraction 8-10 minutes apart before I had to be induced :( walking didn't work for me.
I was dilated to almost a 3 for 3 weeks. I walked at least a mile a day....didn't help oviously since I was a 3 for 3 weeks...LOL
I was dilated for a couple of weeks before actually going into labor. It happens when it happens.
The walking is good for you, but all those go-into-labor tricks are worthless. I tried them all and nothing worked. Sex, spicy food, nipple stimulation, balsamic vinegar, exercise ball, squats, lunges, warm baths, cold baths, stairs, hills, acupressure, spinning babies, etc.
Unfortunately you have to wait on nature. It will only seem like forever, I promise :-/
