Hate to break this to you but just because you are three doesn't mean that you will be in labor soon or help anything along.  It could be hours or weeks until your body is ready and really takes assistance and goes into labor.  Just relax, and take walks, and have sex that is about all you can do, and try to be patient

I was at 3cm with my son from 37 weeks until he was forced out by csection at 42 weeks. Nothing worked. You can try, but your body will only go into labor if your baby is ready.

 I was 4cm dialated for a month, then they ended up having to induce me... then I wouldn't dialate anymore... so I had to have a c-section 4 days after my due date lol. Just don't have sex or walk to much and i'm sure you will be fine. Good luck.

Nothing you can really do... No matter what old wives tales you try, that baby isn't coming till it is ready. Although it sounds like your body is well on its way!

 Unless your ready to have then baby, then have tons of sex, walk a lot and drink a lot of water.
