I will also add.... I had a friend who's first was born at 37 weeks. She figured that meant her second would come around the same time. She started trying everything she could think of at 37 weeks... and her daughter was born at 42 weeks. My best advice is to relax and use this time to pamper yourself as much as possible since it will be all about baby soon enough.

Wait. Baby will come out when baby is ready to come out. Any 'trick' in the book will work if baby is ready... and none of them will work (and can be potentially harmful) if baby isn't ready.

If you tried the tricks and it's not working. Then the baby will come when the baby is ready. I know depending on the state that you're in they will try inducing for medical reasons if you're 40 or more weeks. Trust me, inducing is not fun, it took two tries and 16+ hours to get my baby out. It's not just going in for a couple hours and pop out comes a baby. Also, it is better for the baby to hit 40 weeks of incubating. Just hang in there momma, enjoy getting some sleep these last couple of weeks. lol. I know the last few weeks is MISERABLE! Just hang in there though, you've made it this far, what's a couple more weeks?

I know you're done, sweetie! really, I do understand!

Keep up the walking, etc, of course, but try to not stress about it. Like I said, I went to 43 weeks with my oldest, talk about tired of being pregnant...

Hang in there, and enjoy your blessing when it gets here! :-)

What works absolutely the best is to be patient. You are ready, baby is obviously not, if you've already tried the "tricks", which really are only that, tricks that aren't guaranteed to do a darn thing.

When baby is ready, baby will come. I know it sounds trite, and you're tired of being pregnant. Try going to 42-43 weeks! That's what happened to me, 43 weeks... It sucks, but if the baby isn't ready, they aren't ready, and it's best to wait and go naturally.
