Because you are very lucky! All women are different. Some dilate to higher numbers and 100% effaced and don't feel a thing. Just luck of the draw. It doesn't mean anything is wrong or that the labor will be better or worse in later stages. It just means that you are having a very easy labor up to now.

Been having a lot of mild contractions 38 weeks pregnant is labor soon?

What you are experiencing is called Braxton-Hicks contractions. It is perfectly normal. It is the body's way of "practicing" for the real thing. As long as there is no constant pressure on the floor of the pelvis or discharge of blood or liquid, the mild contractions you are feeling is not a threat. Your baby will be born when he or she is ready. The B-H contractions do not mean labor will begin any sooner than is proper.

How can you induce labor if you're 37 weeks 2 days and 3 cm dilated 40 effaced and the baby's head is sitting at -2 right on your cervix and you literally are bowlegged with his head?

You can try nipple stimulation and raspberry leaf tea, but don't worry it will happen eventually. If he is at -2 he is not sitting directly on your cervix but is farther up in your uterus. The bowlegged feeling is normal at the end of a pregnancy from the dilation of your cervix and the stretching of the ligaments, so don't worry he's not really right between your legs!
