I am the type of person to always know exactly how far along I am in my pregnancy (17weeks, 4days). I am also the type of person to want to know every single day what the baby is up to, what my body is up to, and to just have the pregnancy in my face at all times. That is why I love my pregnancy apps on my phone!
For all of your preggers out there (and to be preggers) here are the apps I use. They are all free and all were found on Google’s Play Store.
This one’s ‘home page’ keeps you on track with what week and day you are, how many weeks and days you have left, and, the fun part, what fruit or vegetable your baby is the size of (this actually comes in handy with the boys, helps give them an idea of how big the baby is instead of saying 4” long).
It also has a weekly update detailing what the little sweetie is doing and what your body may be doing. And the daily info or tip. You can connect to groups, so if you have a question you can post it on there and 1000’s of women can help answer it for you.
Last, you can upload photos to this app.
The Baby Center App
This app coincides with the Baby Center website, which I use and look at often.
This app tracks your weeks then gives you daily info and a ‘to do’ checklist to keep up with (drink your water today, do some stretches, go for a walk). It also gives you the rundown of where you and the baby are each week.
This one also allows you to connect with other mom’s and pregnant women. And a neat perk – it has a “Kick Counter” for when you are farther along and your OB wants to know how often your baby is kicking, or for you and your curiosity.
The Med Help I’m Expecting App
This one only has a weekly update, so during the week I don’t check it. But what it does have that I love is a tool to keep track of your weight, a calendar to put in your appointments and important dates (Baby’s first kick!), a place to put all of your Dr.’s info and a spot to list all of your symptoms. Basically it’s your ‘Before Baby Baby Book’.
There are a ton of apps out there, I had to limit myself to only these 3 or I’d have a phone full of them!
