A dear friend told me about Apps on your phone for pregnancy. In my day, not that long ago, we signed up to emails to learn weekly about our babys’ progress, or searched the internet. For me, I lugged around heavy books as I waited in doctors surgeries or hospitals with Abbey. If only these were around so long…..no not long, a short time ago. Here are the top 8 I found, that I wish were around 8 years ago. Oh there are some really fun ones too!!
