@Soques when I was having my first I used the book 'what to expect when your expecting' like a bible. I haven't found any app that gives the same amount if info. I would look stuff up constantly and it put my mind at ease a lot of the time. Hope to see you 'officially' here tomorrow!
@Soques I researched the harmony test online. I had the test last week and should get the results next Tuesday. I first heard about it on here and googled like mad til I found out about. It's only recently became more widely available so heaps more info on it now. You don't require a doc referral but if you get one for a dating scan they generally do that for free which is nice!
@Soques ha I've got zero idea about this stuff. I was disgusted when I found out only a few years ago when my sister had her first baby. That you have to go through the birth, and then bleed for ages afterwards. WTF haven't we been through enough!!
I also for some reason did not know that new borns need to be feed several times like every couple of hours etc. I asked my sister so do you set an alarm to remind you, she said " no the poor baby screaming will remind you "!
Ive got lots to learn.
Best wishes your BT
@Soques I don't think you will find an app that does all those things. Especially because tests and checks can be quite regional. In my first pregnancy I used the What to Expect app and this one I have been using the Baby Center My Pregnancy app because I was on the Baby Center website all the time checking things for my first baby. It doesn't have a place for appointments or things but it does have a little bit of info each day and then at each new week it tells you the development of the baby at that stage. I also downloaded one called iPregnant Pregnancy Tracker which does have an organiser but I haven't really used that one as all the good stuff seems to be on the upgrade and I'm too cheap to pay for it.
