Just what A Mama needs when she’s in Labor!
I had previously downloaded a similar app but quickly realized that it wasn’t as efficient and convenient as I would have liked it to have been. This one though!!!! With the contraction timer app I was able to start and stop my contractions with one push of a button, the chart/log between contractions and how long the contractions lasted was very easy to read and comprehend. Needless to say, I started consistently tracking my contractions around 8pm on Feb6, and by 6 am Feb7, I headed to the hospital because they were about 5-7 mins apart. When I arrived at the hospital (& approx 30 mins later when they performed their cervical exam to see how far I had dilated , I was already 6cm) I share that to say that the app helped me decide when it was “really” time to head to the hospital as opposed to having false alarm of labor and being sent home!
Download the app!!!! Thank me later!
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 😂
Works with my Apple Watch
When I started having regular contractions with my first I tried to just use the timer on my phone… that only worked so well for so long and eventually I just stopped tracking them.
Fast forward to baby number 3 and I knew I needed an app of some kind. So I downloaded this ahead of time and it worked so well! I started out using it on my phone but I kept missing contractions because I’d be walking around without my phone. So I checked if it was compatible with my watch and surprisingly it was! I was so happy and it was so easy to use!
I didn’t really use the intensity option for each contraction as my labors are fast and I knew it was getting more intense without tracking it.
