Pregnancy Tracker from WhatToExpect.com for iPhone - app review

What to Expect when Expecting is one of the most popular pregnancy books available, and they also have an app to compliment their book and website. Pregnancy Tracker from WhatToExpect.com is an iPhone application for pregnant women to keep track of their pregnancy.

There are 5 sections of Pregnancy Tracker. The home screen, called "tracker", is where you see your due date, a countdown to your due date, Baby's gestational age, what trimester you're in, and something to compare your baby's size to. (This week, my baby is the size of a butternut squash!)

The Weekly tab provides useful information about what to expect with your body and also the changes that are happening in your baby's development. This section is very thorough and gives quite a bit of information.

The Daily tab is my favorite part of Pregnancy Tracker because I haven't seen this in another pregnancy application before. Here you are given a new tip, fact, or reminder each day. Most apps have something similar, but it only changes weekly.

You can store photos related to your pregnancy in the Photos tab.

The last tab is for Forums. This is a great section to communicate with other moms and moms-to-be about pregnancy or anything else related. What makes the forums even better is that they are the same forums that you can find on WhatToExpect.com. This opens up the conversations to anyone, not just iPhone users.

Pregnancy Tracker is a great pregnancy application that is packed with information. The main thing it's lacking is good pictures; It would be really nice if nice pregnancy related pictures were added to the app. Other than that, I have been very happy with Pregnancy Tracker. And the best part... it's free!

I just wanna know. Where's the geeky sci-fi version of this? "Your baby is the size of an Alien chest burster." "Your baby is the size of a Goa'uld." "Your baby is the size of..." No? :)

i use this app! it is great, its gotten so much better now that you can actually post to the forums and reply to members. definitely highly recomended.

And besides an iPod is not ment to be a maternal device and please I bet somebody has used that joke before honstly:)

@Turner, after your first successful pregnancy, we will turn to you for advice.
@Leanna: So what is the Butternut Squash's name...?

Ronb, you are becoming like every asshole who gets irritated when somebody wants to share something in their life that is special. We don't care about your useless opinions. Thanks.

You have time for all these pregnancy apps while waiting for baby arrival. But when your baby is burn you appear to be short of time (at least I did) and you should better download Stork.cc, an app that announces baby birth, like Stork.cc: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stork-cc/id406829847?mt=8 before head. With the App you can email as many birth announcements as you want right from hospital!

You can definitely see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.

I have to say that for the past few of hours i have been hooked by the impressive articles on this website. Keep up the great work.

It's the second time when i've seen your site. I can understand a lot of hard work has gone in to it. It's really good.
