On the diaper bag talk - we got this backpack at our shower/party thing. Eddie Bauer Broadmoor Diaper Bag. I haven't actually opened it yet (there's SO MUCH STUFF in the baby room now it's a little overwhelming) but I'll hopefully get into it this weekend. It sounds like how they described it in the prep class we're in. My doctor and my mom described contractions as waves - they build up low and slow, peak for a set amount of time and then go back down.
