My Top Three Apps for Your Growing Baby and Belly

There seems to be an app for everything these days, including several GREAT ones to keep up with your baby’s development and your growing belly! Two of my favorite books during my pregnancies were Your Pregnancy Week By Week and What to Expect When Your Expecting. I also loved reading all of Jenny McCarthy’s books—Belly Laughs was my favorite!

So now, instead of thumbing through all the information in paperback, you can download free apps like What to Expect, which gives you a weekly breakdown of your body and baby, a timeline tracker and a great way to store your growing belly pics.

Babycenter’s My Pregnancy Today is probably the most comprehensive daily pregnancy app. You simply enter in your due date, and the app turns your smart phone into an encyclopedia of information relating to you and your baby! The videos on this app are amazing, showing the different phases of development during all three trimesters, and it’s a wonderful resource to meet other expecting parents, compare stories, share pictures and meet new friends!

Are you carrying high or low? Does the baby have a fast heart rate or slow? Is it morning sickness or all day sickness? If you just can’t wait until that 18-20 week ultrasound, BabyGender Predictor takes all factors into play and calculates for you: boy or girl! Of course, feel free to also message me, odds are my guess is as good as theirs! It’s still a fun app to try, and it’s free! Happy guessing!

What were your favorite apps during pregnancy? We’d love to know!

I also used What to Expect and I really loved it. Recommended it to some preggy friends even.
