These features allow you to track all of the important information that you need to keep on hand for your care provider.

The food safety and medication safety lookup are unique to this app. I love that the developer thought to include this, as many expectant moms, whether first time moms or not, like to know what foods and medications are safe. If you are at a restaurant and need to look up the food right then, you are able to. If you have a headache and want to take a Tylenol, you can search to see that it is indeed safe.

 

Journaling

Ovia Pregnancy Tracker - Symptoms tracking, due date calculator, kick counter, and contraction timer provides a click and go journaling system, that makes it super easy to record your pregnancy for you and your child to look back and enjoy. I did this with plain old word processor for my oldest child, and have very little written for my middle, but because of the world of apps, my youngest has every day detailed in some regard. This free app makes a pregnancy journal take seconds per day.

With the addition of a short note on how you feel that day, it goes from a database to a personalized entry. You can add photos of yourself throughout your pregnancy, ultrasound images, and more! In addition to the entries you make, within the nutrition section, you get motivation to eat the recommended protein by having a pop-up of how it helps the baby, or if you are experiencing symptoms that may indicate something more severe, it recommends calling your care provider.
