Evening primrose oil did the trick for me. It also has other benefits. I wouldn't recommend taking it if you're under 39 weeks though, how far along are you?

Not far enough.

How far along are you? I don't know why women always want to rush the baby out, it'll come out when it's ready.

Ive learned the hard  way with my first to let your baby come when they are ready! Its hard! I know! My due date is tomorrow and I couldnt even walk this morning because he was on a nerve.

Being dilated or not doesnt mean anything, i have no idea how far along you are but honestly as long as your body and the baby are not ready nothing will work and that includes medical induction.

How dilated you are means NOTHING! You could sit at four cm for two months or be locked up tighter than Fort Knox and deliver into two hours! I have heard both scenarios many, many, many, many times! How far along are you?

You can't make yourself dilate. You can encourage the best position for baby and your pelvis. And you can help your cervix soften with evening primrose oil, sperm, and raspberry leaf tea.
