Top Ten Pregnancy Apps for your Iphone

Top 10 pregnancy apps to make your life easier

I am in love with using my iphone when it comes to making my life a little easier when it comes to tracking all things baby. These are my top ten when it comes to tracking the before, middle and after.

1. When trying to conceive I loved using the “Period and Fertility Tracker” by What to Expect“, this app is super handy because you can use it to link with the calendar in your phone and even set reminders to remind you when it is time to have some fun. 🙂 *Depending on your husband’s/partner’s personality they may or may not want to know that you are aware of the “calendar” so be sensitive to that. There are many available that are like this and they are free!

2. Pregnancy Web MD: {FREE} is a pretty neat app because it can be password protected. It also gives you 3D images of your baby’s development,an image of your baby’s growth from the Mother’s body perspective, quizes, tips, and reminders throughout your entire pregnancy. This app applies tips that will affect you throughout your pregnancy and potential questions you may want to ask your doctor about. For example: in week 14, “You may salivate more during pregnancy. Tell your doctor if this is a problem.” Ha ha. This is me, which perhaps there is something you can take so you’re not drooling so much? I will never forget the time I sat down to lunch with two of my (male) co-workers and I couldn’t hold back my overactive salivary glands and I gleeked across his whole plate of food. And yeah, he noticed. Whoops.

3.Baby Center (My Pregnancy): {FREE} Has a lot of support from the website as well as short video links for current development of the baby and helpful reminders as well. There are even “tools” within the app for a baby checklist, calendar, nutrition tips, pictures, and scheduling doctor’s appointments. This app will also link you to a “birth group” where you can chat with Mommy’s who are delivering the same month you are. It is pretty fun to link with other Mom’s and ask questions about something you might be going through like, “Have you felt your baby move yet?” or “What name do you like better Lilly or Mazey?” You’d be surprised how many Moms are ready to weigh in with their opinion and it really can be a lot of fun. If you’re not a first time Mom, lend your expertise and help soothe another first time Mommy’s worries about something you’ve experienced before.

4. Watch me Grow: {FREE} Is an app that allows you to take a picture in the same place every week (maybe wearing the same thing like a black tee) and then it will turn all of your pictures into a video so you can literally “watch your belly grow!” I haven’t done this myself yet, but I think it would be a pretty neat little video to share with your babe later on.

5. Pregnancy Sprout (lite): {FREE} This app will only allow you to use the free version for about a month. But this app has the best pictures and daily updates that I’ve found. It gives you a detailed timeline that will tell you how far along you’ll be at certain dates. You can also track doctor visits, contraction timers, baby movements and a weight chart!

6. Contraction Timer Plus by ibirth: {FREE} This app is extremely straight forward and easy to use. I think this app would be a really good idea for your husband/partner to have on his phone when you’re preparing yourself to go into the hospital. Let him be in charge of timing it and knowing when it is time to go.

7. Mpregnancy: {$2.99} is a pregnancy app made for men. It actually uses growth charts of the baby and compares it to something a man might relate to a little more. For example this picture is of a ten week old baby who is approximately the size of a beer cap. This one is obviously not free…but the only one I could find catered to men and I thought it was funny.

8. My Baby’s Beat: {$3.99} recommended for Mommy’s in their 30th-40th week of pregnancy this app actually allows you to listen to your baby’s heartbeat using the microphone system already in your iPhone! How cool is that? I haven’t tried this one yet, but I am planning to. Compared to the price of a fetal heart rate monitor of $40, I think it is worth a couple bucks. (I will try it out and let you know what I think!)

9. Baby Sprout: {FREE}: Once baby is here this app will be a LIFE SAVER. It allows for you to track your baby’s eating/sleeping schedules, immunization schedule, doctor visits, and growth updates. This one is only free for a couple weeks and will cost you a couple dollars to continue but seems worth it.

10. Baby Sprout Journal: this is also free and asks you questions about your pregnancy to record all along the way. You can also have this journal and pictures you take printed into a journal keepsake sent right to your door!

Let me know if you have any other favorites that I didn’t list here. I am all ears! I will make a new list for when your baby arrives because there are a ton of really helpful apps for new babies too.

Dress: H&M, Bag: Canal Street, NYC, Necklace: Simple Addiction

I am now 14 weeks along and feeling pretty good considering I was throwing up a LOT more with my first two. I have managed not to take any medication for nausea this time around and haven’t thrown up once! I do still have spotting that comes and goes from my placental tear and pray that it doesn’t re-tear. I have also recently started walking again which has been really nice to get out in such beautiful weather!

How far along? 14Weeks
Maternity clothes? Not yet, but I am using the “use the elastic around the button” trick.
Sleep: I’ve been extremely sleepy lately. I went to bed at 9:30 twice this week and was amazed and how much better it made me feel!
Best moment this week: It has now been a month since my tear and things are looking good!
Miss Anything? My classes at the gym! Jackson caught me dancing in the house while cleaning and warned me that it “probably wasn’t best for the baby.” He watches out for me and the babe and it is darling.
Movement: Yes! I actually felt this little one move at 12 weeks. I tend to feel my babies earlier than the norm.
Food cravings: Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, Ice water, and Slurpees
Anything making you queasy or sick: Changing poopy diapers, and old milk sippy cups.
Have you started to show yet: I would say so, but if you didn’t know me you might not notice?
Gender prediction: Boy. Jackson has been quite sure from the beginning that he is getting a brother.
Labor Signs: Heavens no!
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, until about 8-9 and my body starts to shut down. This Mommy is getting sleepy.
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound. I love any chance I get to see this little babe and we will be finding out it’s gender!
