Best Apps for Pregnancy and Self-Care

November 11, 2022

Since becoming pregnant, I have been doing some hardcore nesting, AKA spending a ton of time at home surrounded by fuzzy blankets and snacks. Since I haven’t been leaving the house as much as I used to, I have had more time than ever to scroll on my phone, which is both good and bad. 

On one hand, my screen time has increased significantly, which I’m not particularly proud of. But on the other hand, I have discovered so many awesome apps that have been helping me along my pregnancy journey. So here are a few of my faves! 


The Bump

The Bump app has been my ultimate pregnancy resource throughout this journey. The app has information on every topic you could possibly think of, from baby name ideas to lists of what to pack in your hospital bag when the big day arrives! The Bump app is essential for soon-to-be parents everywhere.



For those who are starting to look into where and how to create their baby registry, look no further! BabyList is an awesome app to easily access all the baby registry products and they even give you lists of ideas to give you a more guided sense for first-time mamas!



The Calm app is one of my favorite self-care resources, and I have been using it almost every day since becoming pregnant. Whether you’re having trouble sleeping at night or just need to meditate for a few minutes during a hectic day, the Calm app has great guided meditations and sleep stories for virtually every unique need. There is even a sleep story narrated by Harry Styles, which I have admittedly listened to more than once! 


Plant Nanny

I think it’s safe to say that we could all stand to drink more water, but it can be hard to keep track of our daily intake. Plant Nanny is an adorable app that keeps track of how much water you drink with the help of cute little plant friends! Every time you drink water, your plant absorbs it and will grow a little more.


Coconut Baby

Coconut Baby is the absolute cutest baby tracking app I have ever seen. The app tells you how big your baby is each week by comparing it to a different food, animal, or inanimate object, like an iced coffee or children’s toy. It’s so fun to see your baby’s growth progress illustrated in such a cute way, and my friends and family love it when I send them screenshots each week!
