What information is available about my pregnancy and where can I find it?
The main screen of BabyBump is the profile screen. From here, you can tap the Baby, Your Body, Journal, Photos, Kick Counter, or Contractions buttons. The Baby and Your Body screens give detailed week-by-week information about the changes happening to you and your baby. Keep checking back each week for more info!
The Profile screen says I am on Week #, Day 7. Shouldn't it advance to the next week?
BabyBump counts days of the week from Day 1 to Day 7. So you will be on Day 7 on the last day of your week and on Day 1 on the first day of the next week. For example, if today is Week 17, Day 7, then tomorrow will be Week 18, Day 1.
How do I change my profile photo?
You can tap the profile photo to change it. You can choose to take a new photo with the camera or choose an existing photo from your library. After you have chosen a photo, the photo will replace the default profile photo and will be saved even after you quit the application. You can change your photo again at any time and can even revert back to the default photo if you don't like the one you have chosen.
How do I keep a photo diary of my pregnancy?
The Photos button on the main BabyBump screen allows you to manage your pregnancy-related photos. Tapping the "+" button in the upper right-corner allows you to add photos from your camera or phone's photo library. When you add a photo, it is tagged with the current date. For example, you may want to add a photo of your belly for each week of your pregnancy so you can see a time-lapsed slideshow of your progress. Tapping on any photo brings you to a large view. In the large view, you can swipe left or right to view the previous/next photo, and you can delete or email a photo.
How do I change the units used for my weight and waist measurements?
When entering a weight or waist measurement in the journal, you can specify the units for that individual measurement. You do not have to use the same measurement unit across days. For example, one day you could use kg and another you could use lb. To set the units used by default, tap the Settings button on the main Profile screen and go the Measurements. Note that these default units will also affect the default units shown in the measurement charts. However, you can change the units shown in the charts in the top right-hand corner of the Charts screen.
Where are the charts?
BabyBump charts your weight and waist measurements over time so you can see how your body has changed. Go to the Journal screen, scroll to the top to the Measurements section if it isn't already visible, and then tap the View Charts button.
How does BabyBump calculate estimated weight on the weight chart?
Estimated weight is based on your Body Mass Index (BMI), which is calculated from your pre-pregnancy weight and height. Note that the estimated weight gain is only an estimate. You should consult with a doctor if you are concerned about changes in your weight during your pregnancy. The BabyBump weight gain estimation is based on information provided by ACOG at the following link: ACOG.
How do I delete a contraction session?
On the Contractions screen, tap the History button in the upper right-hand corner. Here, the history of all contractions appears in the lower-half of the screen. You can swipe left or right on any row to delete the contraction. Note that you cannot delete an active contraction. To delete an active contraction, first stop the contraction, then swipe to delete it on the contraction history screen.
How do I send an email of my Kick Counts or Contraction tracking sessions?
In the lower right-hand corner of the Kick Counter and Contractions screens there is an action button. Tap the button to send an email containing the full history of your kicks or contractions.
I cannot set my due date using LMP and/or my number of weeks always says 41+
In version 1.0 of BabyBump, the LMP method of setting the due date does not work properly. This has been fixed and works in version 1.1 of BabyBump and beyond. Please upgrade to the latest version using App Store on your phone.
Some of my journal Feelings or Notes are not saving
In version 1.0 of BabyBump, a single quote (') in a Feelings or Notes prevented the field from being saved properly. This has been fixed and works in version 1.1 of BabyBump and beyond. Please upgrade to the latest version using App Store on your phone.
What if I'm having twins?
Version 3.1 and greater of BabyBump allows you to specify that you're having twins. From the profile screen, tap on Settings and then Baby and select the number of children. When this is greater than 1, and if you have entered your pre-pregnancy weight and height, then the estimated weight graph will be adjusted to account for the fact that you're having multiples. According to the American Pregnancy Association, women having twins should gain 35 to 45 pounds while women having triplets should gain 50 to 60 pounds.
Note that if you are having a single child, BabyBump will use your baby's gender when adding the baby's name to the profile screen. For example, it will preface your baby's name with "Baby Boy" or "Baby Girl" if there is enough room. However, if you are having multiples, your baby's name will be shown without any preceding text.
Also note that if you are having multiples, the baby comparison information on the weekly baby information screen will not be accurate. There currently is not enough information to give accurate fruit or vegetable comparisons for multiples for each week of pregnancy.
