I don’t want to delete the app

I had a sweep done the day before my due date because I was still 1cm dilated. My contractions started the day of my due date but very inconsistent and hard to keep track of while I am writing it down in my notepad or my husband is texting it to me. I downloaded this app and my husband ended up downloading it as well because it is super easy to use. No guess work. Very straightforward app! I used it while having contractions on the way to the hospital (they were painful) because that is how easy it is. You just push a “start” button and then “stop” and do your part in breathing through the contractions lol.
I do not want to delete the app because I have an attachment to it due it is being memories tied to my first child. Maybe I’ll take screenshots and put them in her baby book.... but till now I’ll just open it randomly and reminisce 😂

Simple and easy to use

I was able to time a lot of these myself since it was so quick and easy. The feature to touch anywhere on the screen to end is especially helpful. My husband timescthem for a couple of hours while we were in bed (a time that it’s helpful not to have to spend too much time looking at a screen). My labor slowed down and sped up a lot (2 min apart, then 8 min apart) over the hours and it was helpful to be able to qualify. Now we have a beautiful little girl!

Add to lock screen or Control Center

I am a super new user for this app and I like the simplicity of the app design and layout. It would be awesome to have this app at the ready on either at the Lock Screen or Control Center pull down menu for iPhone! I understand that with the watch on it’s a quicker route to access but it’s something that I don’t have on 24/7 or at the ready like my iPhone device. Just a suggestion 😊!

I had a contraction this morning and used another app to track it as I had not yet found this app and I realized that I had to go through so many steps to get to the tracker and that’s why I downloaded this app. I like that I can take the information from the other app and add it to this app for accurate tracking in the future.
