Now that I’m over halfway through my pregnancy, I wanted to share some of my favorite apps that I use throughout my pregnancy. Since I was a first time mom last time, I definitely used way too many apps, but this time around, I’ve been keeping it concise and using the apps I swore by during my pregnancy with Chase and some new ones of course. You all know that talking shop when it comes to pregnancy is literally one of my favorite conversations. I absolutely love discovering new products and brands, while also comparing with other mamas to learn more about what’s best for mama and baby. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite pregnancy apps that I honestly use daily and thought this could definitely help some of you who are going through this season of life as well.
I use this app for all of baby girl’s scheduling! The app helps to plan how many weeks pregnant I am and how big baby girl is. The app has an amazing calendar function that I use for scheduling appointments and to look at my pregnancy in an overview setting.
Okay if you take one app away from this post it should be this. I use The Bump THE MOST!!! I open this app daily for so many of its functions. They offer daily articles of certain points in your pregnancy (how big is baby, symptoms to expect, and what’s happening to your body) and the articles actually coincide with where you’re at in your pregnancy! The Bump gives you daily facts about your baby rather than a weekly overview. I was 22 weeks last week and my app told me that baby girl was the size of a coconut!
I also use this app daily like The Bump! I love that it tells me what to expect in terms of upcoming tests and screenings. I think one of the coolest features is that this app tells you what’s coming up medically and also shares stats about the baby from the founder (love these videos!!).
Baby Story is more of a photo editing app, but I absolutely love that you take (or add) a picture and place stickers onto the photo! Stickers include the amount of weeks and even specific pregnancy milestones.
I literally use this for all of the upcoming events in our lives, but specifically throughout pregnancy. I have it tracking to baby girl’s due date, our babymoon, trip to Disney, and other big events in our lives! I love watching the app countdown to these exciting moments.
This app is amazing for keeping all of your cards in one place. All my mamas know the amount of documents you have to bring to each appointment and this app allows you to upload your important cards so you never have to carry your cards on you again! A serious game changer.
If you’ve been following me for a bit now, you’d know how much I adore the Hatch sound machine! I plan to get one for baby girl because of how amazing it’s been with Chase. I absolutely love that this product links to an app that controls the machine. Such a mama must have!
I really like this app for tracking contractions. I obviously won’t be needing this any time soon, but I know it’s there for when I do! One of the features I absolutely love is that while timing your contractions, the app will also send alerts that are amazing for first time moms. Some of the alerts include when you should call your doctor and when you should get ready/pack your bags.
The Baby WebMD app is an amazing hub for medically approved articles and information to set your mind at ease throughout pregnancy. The Baby 101 feature is my go to for current news and tips from experts and physicians. You can also use this app to record your baby’s growth and development!
I didn’t pump with Chase, but I’m planning to try with baby girl. I wanted to share an app that I’m excited to try called Baby Connect. For all my pumping mamas, this app seems to really do it all. Baby Connect tracks feedings and allows for log entries and timers to track pumping sessions. It keeps track of what side you nursed last so you can plan accordingly for next time. I love the graphs and trend charts they provide as well. Let me know if you use any other feeding/nursing apps in the comments!
MyRegistryis such a helpful tool if you’re planning to build a registry before baby arrives! I did baby girl’s registry on here. It’s great because it allows you to pull from multiple sites to make one big registry, rather than only picking one store.
I’d definitely suggest using this app if you’re following Moms On Call. If you’re like me and didn’t follow this exactly, it’s great to see what they recommend for kid’s ages. I took these tips into account with Chase and plan to do the same this time around as well. I didn’t do sleep training with Chase, but I found it super helpful to read up on these kinds of statistics like napping and feeding.
Don’t forget to let me know in the comments section about other apps that have helped you! I always like hearing other recommendations!
