Heidi Murkoff’s book What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a popular reference for pregnant women (and their overwhelmed partners) who need the advice about all the little and big things that happen during those critical nine months. WhatToExpect.com, the accompanying site to the book, has just launched the free What to Expect Pregnancy Tracker app for the iPhone. Thanks to the mobile platform, the app gives moms and dads the ability to quickly find relevant and actionable info wherever they are, without having to dig through hundreds of pages for that bit of morsel that’s most important right now.
What to Expect’s Pregnancy Tracker iPhone app is loaded with invaluable (and fun) interactive features that let parents-to-be follow their pregnancies week by incredible week. Moms (and dads) can calculate and count down to that momentous due date, and keep up with their baby’s astonishing rate of growth (as it works its way through the produce aisle — from raspberry-size at week eight, to plum-size at week 12, to watermelon at term). They also get Heidi’s weekly updates on what baby’s up to development wise (week 18, twisting and rolling, week 26, opening his eyes), weekly illustrations of their growing fetus, and the opportunity to upload photos of their burgeoning bellies and turn the photos into slide shows to share with their families and friends.
WhatToExpect.com has also launched the Baby Name Finder app for the iPhone. The application includes over 15,000 baby names which can be searched by gender, alphabetically and by origin. It also contains the top baby names for each year from 1950 – 2008 and the origin and meaning of the names included.
