Evening Primrose Oil can help soften the cervix to prepare for dilation... I started taking it at 37 weeks. Can also be taken vaginally at night before bed... that's the best you can do for now! Good luck <3

Nope and i do hope you know that being dilated or not before labor means nothing at all! you can go from 0 to10 cm in a few hours but you can also be 5cm dilated for many many weeks. It doesnt predict anything.

If i were you i would try to relax and stop the checks for now! The baby will come when its time
