It’s amazing to me how much information is available for pregnant women now, as opposed to when I was with child more than seven years ago. Yes, we had the Internet back then (it wasn’t that
long ago), but honestly, my go-to resource was my trusty What to Expect When You’re Expecting
book. I used to check in week-by-week to track progress and write little notes on the pages. Oh, how times have changed.
The apps available to pregnant moms now and the sheer amount of information available is incredible.
The Sprout Pregnancy App is one of those
great ones that provides you with day-by-day and week-by-week status
updates, photos, advice, tips, journals and so much more. The
gestational development photos alone are pretty cool.
Anyone can use the app, but I think first-time
moms who are experiencing everything anew will get the most out of it.
There are kick counters, hospital lists, doctor visit planners, newborn
advice–see what I mean about it being for first-timers? I was lucky
with my second to get to the hospital in time before delivering. -Jeana
Sprout is available in iTunes for $3.99. People who purchase the
app will also get a free subscription to American Baby magazine.
