The Home Screen provides a quick snapshot of your current stage of pregnancy. You will find a spot to display the photo of your choice, a timeline with your progress, the due date, baby's name (optional), and time remaining (or lapsed).
Simply tap any of these fields to edit this information. Notice that when you tap the bottom box, you will have the option to view the Time Left or Progress. You may change any of this information at any time.
The drop down menu on the left side of the screen allows you to easily navigate through the app from any screen. Notice that the menu is always displayed on the Home Screen. On any other screen, simply tap the arrow in the upper left corner to display the navigation menu.
The Calendar provides a visual snapshot of your symptoms and progress throughout your pregnancy. Icons representing moods, symptoms, weight and much more appear on the calendar, making it easy to spot trends and patterns. See "Calendar Placement" below under "Notes" to learn how to manage which icons appear on the Calendar.
To make a Note for the day, double-tap any calendar day, or tap a day then tap below the calendar to go to Notes for that day.
Use the triple-selector at the top of the Calendar to toggle between a Month / List / Day view. All of your Notes are searchable from the List view.
iPregnant allows you to track more than 70 symptoms and moods. Notice the 3 tabs at the top of the Notes: "General", "Symptoms" and "Moods".
With so many symptoms to track, the Icon Manager allows you to take control of what is displayed and even allows you to customize icons. Simply tap the icon that looks like an eye at the bottom of the Notes screen. A pop-up menu will allow you to choose "Calendar Placement", "Label Icons" or "Manage Symptoms".
Calendar Placement: This feature lets you choose which icons are displayed on the Calendar. Simply drag and drop icons to and from the calendar day. There are 7 spaces for you to fill. Any other symptoms, moods or notes that you make will be represented by a small, blue plus sign on the calendar. This symbol tells you that you have something recorded for the day that is not showing on the calendar.
Label Icons: iPregnant includes 4 icons that you can label to suit your needs.
Manage Symptoms: Turn symptoms on and off as needed. For example, if you do not need to track headaches, simply turn this symptom "off" and it will not be displayed on your Notes screen. You may return to this "Manage Symptoms" screen at any time to turn the symptom back "on".
Browse weekly information about your pregnancy, including scientific illustrations, 3D ultrasound images and personal photos. Each week includes information about the baby's size, synopsis, baby's development, how you're feeling and suggestions for you.
Use the arrows at the top of the screen to navigate between the pregnancy weeks. Tap any image to enlarge, and tap the upper right image to add your own photo.
To add a photo, tap the "+" in the upper right corner. After a photo is added, tap the photo, and you will have the opportunity to add a title. You may also share the photo via Facebook or Email.
To begin a kick session, tap "Begin Session" and then the "Kick" button. Or, simply tap the "Kick" button to record the first kick.
