Mother’s Day is coming up and we are fully aware that there are divided opinions on whether you should celebrate Mother’s Day or not if you’re still pregnant. But, we’ll take any occasion to celebrate you! This time, we’re presenting you with five free Android apps that you definitely need to know about if you’re expecting your bundle of joy.
Keeping track of your pregnancy
As natural as pregnancy may be for a woman’s body, finding out that you’re expecting is likely to raise millions of questions about the coming months. Thankfully, nowadays there are tons of resources that can help you find all those answers that you’re looking for. Here are two great options for you:
Ovia Pregnancy Tracker is a sleek and straightforward app that helps you keep track of your pregnancy in the most adorable way. The app keeps track of your baby’s development by comparing the little one to a piece of fruit. This very visual comparison helps you and your partner have a more tangible idea of your baby’s growth throughout the months. For example, at week 8 your baby will be the size of a single wild strawberry. Cute right? The app also includes really useful information such as nutrition tips, short articles about possible symptoms, etc.
Another great resource you should know about is What to Expect. If the name sounds familiar, you’re not wrong. This apps follows on the footsteps of the very famous reference book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”. Just like the book, this app includes invaluable information about the different stages of pregnancy. Much like Ovia Pregnancy Tracker, What to Expect also helps you track your pregnancy and offers all kinds of incredibly useful tips and tricks.
Connecting with other moms
Feeling like you’re part of a community might help you during your pregnancy, more than you might know. Hello Baby includes a great community of soon-to-be and experienced moms that are there to support each other. Much like you would with Instagram, you can follow other moms that live near you or around the globe and even create supportive friendships. But that’s not all, this adorable app includes other features such as a video and voice recorder as well as a photo section that you can use to create albums of your baby’s memorable moments. Best of all, you can easily share all this multimedia content with your family and friends through the app.
Creating your baby wishlist
If you’re pregnant, then you’re very likely to have a baby shower to share your joy with your family and friends. In order to help your guests figure out what you actually need and want, the best thing to do is to create a baby registry. The problem is that if you want items from different stores, you may have to create different wish lists which might be time-consuming and confusing for your guests. This is when an app such as Myregistry comes in so handy. This simple app helps you create one registry list where you can include items from every store you can think of. The best part is that when you’re done creating your list, you can share it with your guests with the simple click of a button.
Keep track of your contractions
Perhaps the most anxiety-triggering part of pregnancy for most women is going into labor (can’t really blame them!). And though there’s not much anyone can tell you that might ease that anxiety, you can be as prepared as you can possibly be when the big moment arrives. Full Term is a super easy-to-use and straightforward app that keeps track of your contractions’ intensity, duration, and frequency. The app also includes other features such as a baby kick counter and a guide that has information about common symptoms, signs of labor, etc. The best part is that you can easily email your contractions’ information to your doctor or anyone else.
Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times of your life, but also the most confusing. Keeping these five apps in your smartphone can fun but also very useful. Last but not least, the Uptodown team would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all moms and soon-to-be moms out there. We couldn’t do it without all of you.
