    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Smart Phone Apps for TTC
    Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Okay ladies, I hunted around the Internet and found some Trying To Conceive apps for iPhone, Blackberry, and Android. Neither I, nor WebMD recommends or endorses any of these apps. They've just been presented in the hopes you can share your personal experiences with any of them, or they might be useful to you in your TTC journey.

    Baby Gender (Based on Chinese calendar)
    Fertility Friend
    Home & Learning Ovulation Calendar
    iPeriod (also iPad)
    Pregnancy Alarm (also iPod Touch & iPad)

    Ovulation Calendar
    Period Calendar Delux

    Fertility Friend
    Pink Pad
    Tips to Get Pregnant
    Period Tracker (Thanks Salli! Link below)

    So which ones have you tried? What did you think? Do you have others not listed here that you've tried? Any you want to try?

    I have an android phone and use this free app - I like it but I'm not yet pregnant (have been trying for about 2 months.)
    rozsmith86 responded:
    i have an iphone and i like the "what to expect" fertility app. you can enter your period dates, make notes and track fertility dates too.

    Thanks for making that recommendation, Salli! It's nice that it's free, too.

    I appreciate your recommendation, Roz! If anyone wants the link to the "What to Expect " app, follow this link to my list of pregnancy apps.

    Many of the TTC/Pregnancy apps cross over and can be used for both. I think there's also an Android version of "What to Expect," too.

    Good luck,

    I use both iPhone & android apps for Fertility Friend and its amazing..! It's like an online journal. You can chart literally anything from your period day, BBT, CM, OPK and HPT results in one chart. Even your BD timings, mood, specific symptoms eg cramping, pms. It then uses all that info to calculate your ovulation dates and expected AF dates and when to test. It's really unbelievable! You even have an offline mode to record stuff when u have no Internet then you sync it with your chart when you're back online. Works great for me since I travel across the world like crazy. You get a free 30 day trial, and a free, very empowering fertility & charting course which I highly recommend for all the ladies here as it helps answer lots of your fertility questions. It also has a super active members message board which is a buzz of activity with posts going in literally every minute and if you sign up for the VIP package you get a dedicated fertility guide to answer your questions within a record 10minutes (every question, I swear!) I highly recommend it, it has really helped me take charge of my fertility! You can have a look at my chart for my last cycle here:

    Thank you for all of the great tips and sharing your experience with the apps, Petal. There are so many great options for support when TTC these days.

    Hope you need to start using Pregnancy Apps soon!
