Pregnancy apps are a great way to track each trimester and get helpful tips and advice as your baby grows. Here are some apps worth checking out. P.S. This page may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more information.
what to expect
This app is linked to the brand and classic book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” I loved using this app while pregnant because the information is straightforward and it has a user-friendly interface.
Each week it tells you the size of your baby, how your baby is developing and how your body is changing. It comes with weekly videos and daily articles. The app explains symptoms and reminds you of tests you’ll need based on your stage of pregnancy.
It also offers recipes and has a section where you can build a photo journal. There’s a community section too where you can join discussions and share information and ideas with others.
This is another highly rated app. Similar to What to Expect it gives you updates based on your week of pregnancy. Other helpful tools include baby names, a contraction timer and a kick tracker.
The app also offers “3-D fetal development videos that show you what is happening with your baby and body at every stage of your pregnancy.”
I watched a lot of the weekly videos offered on the Ovia app. Each week the app gives you a video telling you about your stage of pregnancy. Like the apps above, it also helps you track each week and connect with a community.
The app also has a calendar feature to organize your appointments and reminders. There’s a lookup tool too that helps you with food safety, medications and symptoms.
This app is created by The Knot Inc., the company that also helps with wedding planning. The app has a planner, articles and gives offers on products.
It also says it has an exclusive “interactive 3D visualization of baby’s growth during pregnancy.”
This app specializes in interactive 3D models of your baby, with the tagline “Watch your baby grow in 3D!”
If you put in more details about your baby, the app will update the 3D baby to better match your own. It says it also lets you “zoom in or out and rotate to see the baby’s intricate detail.”
I suggest starting with one or two pregnancy apps to see what works best for you!
