Best Apps To Download For Pregnant Women
If you are pregnant, you know that there are so many things to do in order to prepare for the birth of the baby. For women who are surrogates in Minnesota or who are continuing to work throughout their pregnancies, there are so many different things to keep track of and organize throughout the length of the pregnancy.
Thank goodness for technology.
There are simply so many apps that can help you to keep everything aligned and organized so that you can focus on being healthy and growing the baby inside of you – and that is enough.
Which apps should you download? Here are our top choices:
A Checklist App
“Pregnancy brain” is certainly a real thing, and many people find that writing down information can help them to stay organized. Thankfully, there are many different apps that allow you to make notes on the go and not really have to worry about losing your list that you worked so hard on creating. There are so many different options out there, so don’t be afraid to try something new if the notes apps that you have (or those that come standard with the app) don’t work out for you.
A Food Tracking App
While you don’t have to worry too much about your weight while you are pregnant, there are some women who need to track their nutrition to help prevent any issues like gestational diabetes or high blood pressure. You may also want to use a pregnancy-specific app to help you monitor your vitamin intake to ensure that you are giving your child the best environment to grow in – it really does depend on your diet. Even better, you may be able to monitor what foods make you sick and which foods are good for your pregnancy.
What To Expect
The classic book that everyone had years ago now has an app that is a lot more user-friendly – and portable – than the book could ever be. This app contains answers to all of the questions that you could ever have and even has interactive sections so that you can make friends and talk to women who are pregnant at the same time you are, which can be helpful if this is your first pregnancy.
Food Delivery Apps
There are going to be days that you just don’t want to make your own food, and that is okay. Your feet will hurt, your back might hurt, and you just want to sit in front of the TV and eat something good – and that is where food delivery apps come in handy. Even better, it is good if you try them out now so that you can have favorites for when the baby is born, because you will be just as tired then.
Baby Name App
Another book that so many people buy when they are pregnant is that huge book of baby names that they go through and mark up so that they can choose a name. When the time comes to talk about them, you have to go back through and it takes a long time. A baby name app, on the other hand, is easier to use and allows you to “favorite” certain names so that you have a handy list. Even better, you can sort by certain things and search by portions of names.
Social Media Apps
You know you want to show off your pregnancy, so why not do it? Download as many social media apps as you can to take pictures and document this experience. Take pictures, post them to Snapchat and Instagram, ask questions on Facebook, and talk to other moms on Twitter. Now is the time to connect with people and build up a community for you and the new baby.
These are just a few of the apps that you will want to download. There are more being released every day. And remember that this list isn’t limited to just the moms – dads, Intended Parents for surrogates, and family members may want to download some of these apps as well.
