"Today's expectant moms are on the go more than ever," says Carley Roney,
editor in chief of "We're thrilled to offer moms-to-be the most
comprehensive guide to pregnancy wherever they are, at the touch of their
fingertips. With daily and customizable to-dos, developmental updates on baby
and access to community message boards to chat with other moms, this app is
the ultimate resource to survive one of the most exciting (and overwhelming!)
times in a woman's life."

Features of the My Pregnancy Calendar App by The Bump for the iPhone include:

  oDaily Updates on Baby's Development and Mom's Symptoms. When your baby
    reaches eight weeks, you'll be notified that she's the size of a
    raspberry, she's moving her arms and legs like crazy and her taste buds
    are forming. If grandma's dying to know how big baby is each week, you can
    easily email the update to her or share it on Facebook and Twitter. You'll
    also get daily updates on your own body changes and information on how to
    deal with hormones, aches, pains, nausea and more.
  oCustomizable Appointments and To-Dos. If you've just scheduled your first
    ultrasound, you can add the appointment to your app, which will
    automatically drop it into your pregnancy calendar and send a reminder to
    your email before the big day. You can also add to-do items, such as "pack
    the hospital bag" and "paint the nursery," so pregnancy brain will never
    knock you off track!
  oSeamless Syncing. The best part about adding your own to-dos and
    appointments to the calendar and checking them off? It seamlessly syncs
    with your Pregnancy Calendar on so you're always on track,
    whether checking to-dos from your work computer or from your phone while
    on the go.
  oImportant Checkup and Test Information. Undecided if you should get a CVS
    test? The calendar will automatically include suggested tests and checkups
    with information on what will go on during the appointment and how to
    decide if it's right for you.
  oCommunity On the Go. The heart of has always been its
    community, with more than 500,000 posts per month on more than 100 message
    boards ranging from Baby Showers to Breastfeeding. All the message boards
    where moms love to give advice and ask questions are available through the
    app so women can connect with each other whenever and wherever they are.
  oPregnancy Safety Advice. Not sure if you can eat sushi while pregnant?
    Need to color your hair but you're scared it will harm the baby? This app
    is loaded with safety information and advice on what's totally safe and
    what you should absolutely avoid during those nine months. You can also
    share this information on Google+, Twitter, Facebook and email.
  oWeekly Bump Photo Gallery. Keep track of your growing bump each week in
    the pregnancy bump photo gallery. Simply snap a picture and upload it to
    the appropriate week to create a growing nine-month gallery; then easily
    share the pic with your family and friends on Facebook, Twitter and email.
  oDaily Journal Notes. Many moms want to remember exactly how they felt when
    they found out the sex of their baby or what they experienced during the
    final month of pregnancy. With the daily notes function, comments can be
    written and added to the calendar, creating a pregnancy journal that you
    can look back on anytime you want to relive the journey all over again!
