Awesome iPhone Apps for Pregnancy

By Katie |

My name is Katie and I am an iPhone addict. I love my phone so much I really don’t know how I could survive without it, and I am only half-kidding. This is sort of ironic given that I go out of my way to never talk on the phone that I love so very much. But anyway, the iPhone has enhanced my life in a number of ways and most recently, it has given me knowledge and resources to manage the crazy world of pregnancy.

The farther along I get into pregnancy the more I realize that about 80% of the time, I have no idea what I am or am supposed to be doing. I mean, so far the baby is measuring on track if not a day or two ahead, so clearly I’m doing something right, but aside from eating when hungry and avoiding the foods I think I’m supposed to avoid, I’m a little clueless.

Enter the iPhone. I have found a variety of apps that have given me resources and knowledge that I would otherwise not have access to. And some that compare the baby to fruit each week. And I thought that since there are other iPhone, iTouch and iPad mothers-to-be out there, that perhaps you could also benefit from my recent discoveries in technology. Also, in case this list isn’t exhaustive enough for you, Babble has their own list of the top 25 apps for pregnancy including Babble’s own app that I’ll be downloading in about 2 minutes.

So let’s talk apps.

Awesome iPhone Apps for Pregnancy

BabyBump

I'm not going to lie to you, one of my very favorite parts of this app is that it compares the baby to food each week. This week he's a large heirloom tomato, next week a banana. It also gives good daily or weekly information (you can choose) about what's happening in your body and with the baby. It gets a little redundant if you're using it with other apps, but you can't beat it for baby/food comparisons.
Price: free or $3.99
For more information see the BabyBump page at the iTunes Store.

    my hubby bought a contraction app for IPAD when I went into labor. He has vision problems, and the last thing I wanted while in a contraction was to be staring at a watch calculating. The fantastic part about me using the app was that I could bypass the ‘is that the start?..hmmm’ hesitancy that I had when I was trying to cue my husband verbally. With less to do and think about, I tapped the button confidently and I think it made it even more accurate. It also kept an instant calculation of the total number, the average length, the total time, as well as the same info for periods of the last hour, the last ten minutes, and the previous contraction. So I could easily and immediately tell if they were coming faster or getting longer. If, like me, you want to labor at home as long as possible, I consider this app invaluable.
