Let's see, from what I've heard (and tried) you need the proper combination of action and relaxation. So keep dancing, cleaning, and go for a walk. And also, believe it or not, relaxing. This is the deal, a tense body is stressed which can keep labor from progressing until, hypothetically, the mother finds a calm relaxed place where she can safely give birth. It's just a biological safety measure, So, take a bath or shower, breathe deeply, talk to people who make you feel comforted. These things helped me.
Congratulations!
