I love that there's an app for everything, and I especially love that there are lots of free pregnancy apps designed to make live a little less stressful for expecting moms!
Like most free apps (check out the best ovulation apps for fertility and period tracking ), it takes a little bit of work to sort out the really good free apps from the junky, spammy and buggy ones. That's what I'm here for!
I spent sometime researching the best free pregnancy apps so you don't have to.

5. Full Term Contraction Timer & Kick Counter(iOS only)
I love the idea of this app!
This application is the most convenient way to keep track of your labor contractions.
I created this application for use during my own wife's labor and have paid special attention to keeping the interface as clean and clutter free as possible.
You have to tap a single button to track the start and end of each contraction.
