Yes, there's an App for that. Aren't you glad about that? For expecting mothers who own those Smart Phones there are some very cool Apps that can help them along with their pregnancies. Some of these Apps are free and some cost very little, but they all have value features that are user friendly. Now there are not just Apps for the expecting Mom, but Dad has some Apps he can access as well. NOTE: Make sure that when using any App that allows your personal information to be entered that there is password protecting capability. Let's investigate some pregnancy Apps.

1. Pregnancy Progress - If you're wondering how many times that sweet bundle of joy you're carrying has kicked you, well then keep a count of the kicks with this App that has a cool kick counter. Take pictures and send to friends letting them know how far along you are. Make your doctor's appointments, document questions that you may have about your pregnancy. The calendar feature will allow you to review your progress.

2. Labor and Contraction Timer - Tracks how long your contractions are and how far apart they are as well as how intense they are. You can see if your contractions are increasing or decreasing, send e-mails to friends or family so they too can monitor your progress.

Journal your thoughts daily, and use this App's calendar to create historical records as well as edit, organize, and preview these records. The chart feature is great for tracking whatever you want concerning your body changes. Data that is saved can be exported to other on-line applications so that data can be printed out. Another great thing about this App is that you can password protect your information to keep snoops out.

6. iPregnancy (designed by a practicing OB/GYN) - With this App you'll be able to view, in 3D, ultrasounds of your little bundle. Have questions for your doctor? Just log them in for later. There's a cool baby name picker, a weight tracker, link to Facebook and Twitter so you can share your progress with friends and family, use the Due Date Calendar which will estimate your due date based on your last period, ultrasound date, or date of conception, and store pictures of yourself chronicling your ever expanding belly.

8. This App is for men and it's called MPregnancy which brings a little humor to the pregnancy process. Ok, Dads, you get to compare your baby's growth to the size of a pizza, a beer cap or a football. This App comes from a man's point of view. Men will also learn what foods their wives should avoid during pregnancy and can visit the FAQ section. With this App the happy couple can know the size of their little one from week to week.

Pregnancy Apps and E-book of 15,000 + Baby Names

10. The Guys Guide to the Delivery Room. What should Dad expect when Mom's expecting? Many men may be too nervous to enter the delivery room, or have no idea what to expect once they’re in the delivery room, or their stomachs may not be able to handle the wonderful miracle of birth. This guide will help men with any misconceptions or fuzzy thinking they may have about participating in the birth of a child. Knowledge is power, and the more men know about the in’s and out’s of child-birthing the better they should feel and the better they should be prepared to enter the delivery room. This e-book gives insight into:

  • What to bring with you to the hospital
  • The process of labor
  • We're at the hospital, now what?
  • Labor Medications
  • Information on C-Sections
  • The baby is born, now what?
