What about bouncing on a ball or go for a long walk if you can manage it?

Melissa if nothing has happened yet then walking is definitely the thing to do, you need to keep as upright & mobile as possible to help gravity assisst baby downwards which will in turn help contractions build. Also try rotating your hips as if hula hooping. Best wishes & good luck.
