ditto to tabitha. Lots of squating and walking.
What does your doc say? Usually they don't want you to go past 3 1/2 without inductions or close watching.

You're at 4 cm already and not even in labour yet? That sounds good to me, it should open up nicely once labour starts. I had to go from 0 with my son. It took a long time. :(

I've heard that eating pineapple helps get labour started, not that it worked for me.

How long have you been stuck at 4cm? What does your Dr. say about it? I would probably stick with extra walking, warm showers, nipple stimulation and some squatting. Otherwise, wait it out. Baby will come when he/she is ready.
