First off, I want to say I am not pregnant currently but I am not done either having babies and I love the idea of an App to help pregnant moms!
When you first open this App, you enter in your Due Date or Last Period. It then goes to a screen showing what your baby looks like, saying how old your baby is, what Trimester, and how many days to go! You can click on a few spots on the screen to learn more about certain things that are happening with your cells and hormones. The bottom of the App has five menu buttons: My Baby, Doctor Says, Organizer, Tools, and More. The Doctor says has more information to read about the week you are on with your baby. Organizer has a doctor visits planner, to do list, newborn esentials and more. I really like the Tools section which tracks your weight, baby kicks, and contractions. I was always curious about weight I was gaining and how often the baby kicked. I actually can’t really think of anything that I feel is missing from this App right now as it has the important questions and features. Oh and the 3D baby images are truly amazing with how detailed they are and how they are also interactive. Sprout Pregnancy Essentials is really a great app, although I admit to being bias and not having any other apps to compare this too.
