Pregnancy can be very overwhelming especially if it’s your first time. As it doesn’t last long, every mother-to-be obviously wants to make the most out of those nine months.

I’m a mother of two and trust me when I say this, the excitement of learning about all those big and small developments your unborn baby is undergoing, is just so amazing.  I when I pregnant I never shied away from having multiple pregnancy tracking apps on my phone.

You can do the same. You can track your baby’s development, time your contractions, or even pick a baby name with one of these excellent pregnancy apps. When it comes to pregnancy, there is most definitely an app for that. Here are five of my favorites.

 What to Expect Pregnancy & Baby:

The very popular pregnancy book, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” has it’s official free app which includes a very good amount of information. The app has a due date calculator, week-by-week photos of your baby’s growth and development and pregnancy countdown. There are also a lots of other interesting features scattered throughout this app. For example, did you know that at 13 weeks your baby is the size of a  pea pod?

 My Pregnancy by BabyCenter:

My Pregnancy app is by BabyCenter. It’s another free app. This app is very much similar to the What to Expect Pregnancy app as discussed above,with a bunch unique features. For example, it includes some very realistic yet scary illustrations of babies in the womb along with a number of videos on real birth. You can even manage your pregnancy to-do list and join a due date club. Also it is very reassuring to know that all the content in this app is reviewed by a medical advisory board.

 I’m Expecting – Pregnancy App & baby guide:

This is again a  free app which includes online community forums based on the month when you are due, or on your age. It has a very sleek design and tons of helpful features have helped to make this app a favorite among parents-to-be. Using this app you can create a virtual scrapbook of baby bump photos, and even track your symptoms. I’m Expecting is very easy to navigate, and helps you keep all of your medical and personal pregnancy information well organized at one place. However, this app doesn’t include a contraction tracker, which I think is very important as you near your due date.

 BabyBump Pregnancy:

The BabyBump Pregnancy has two versions, one is paid and the other is free. Since I already had too many pregnancy apps, I didn’t bother buying this one. I downloaded the free version and it was decent enough. This app includes week-by-week development information and also lets you keep a journal of your progress and create a birth plan for the big day. You can also connect with the other moms and discuss via social forums.

 Pregnancy Sprout:

This is another app that has two version. The paid one costs $4 approximately. And the free version, Pregnancy Sprout Lite gives free access to the full app for a two-week trial period. The week-by-week graphics are very attractive. It has all of the basic tools  such as a kick counter, a contraction timer, hospital bag checklists and a doctor visit planner, where you can add questions for your provider. This app doesn’t have any community forums but it’s easy to navigate and a solid choice.

Pregnancy is a phase that you won’t be able to enjoy if you’re anxious about your or your baby’s health. These apps will guide you to just about any information you need. Or at the very least, they’ll explain what you need to ask your doctor and what you need to know prior to your delivery.

So while you reach there, you can spend your time finding names and keeping journal notes or sharing photos with friends and family until the time arrives. Enjoy this special time and use these apps to get the most out of your pregnancy. GoodLuck 🙂
