Having a baby? There’s an app for that.

Seriously — being pregnant can mean you have a lot of new things to think about. Suddenly you have a little being whose growth and development you want to monitor.

You want to eat right and exercise, get some good shots of your ever-expanding bump, and maybe get some advice for how to deal with pregnancy-related discomforts (and yes, mood swings).

Oh, then there’s the whole thing about actually prepping for labor and deciding on a name. Like we said, a lot to think about.

Thankfully, apps abound for just about every pregnancy-related need you might have. From getting pregnant in the first place, to finding unique ways to bond with your baby, to the best tool for timing those contractions, here are 13 brilliant pregnancy apps worth trying.
