For Two Fitness: My Attempt To Naturally Induce Labor

Disclaimer: Thank you For Two Fitness® for sending me a tank to review.

I talked about my hopes of having my baby before his due date in my last pregnancy update and even then, I thought I would at least have him on his due date. Again, I was wrong. I’m currently overdue at 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I’ve being trying everything to naturally induce labor.

From having intercourse to eating pineapples and even taking evening primrose, I’ve done everything the doctor suggested. The only thing that seems to make any difference in the way I feel physically has been exercising.

The Pros & Cons Of The What To Expect Pregnancy App

Can you guess one of the first things I did once the reality of being pregnant hit me?

I downloaded an app.

(Don’t judge me…it’s what millennials do, OK?)

Because I’m a first time mom-to-be, I literally knew nothing about the pregnancy experience. I didn’t understand exactly how pregnancies progress, what certain terms meant, what body changes and symptoms I would experience and the list goes on. Downloading a pregnancy app just made sense for me.

I chose to download the What To Expect app because of the popularity of its accompanying website. I downloaded several others but this was the first one I found to be useful – but it’s not without its pros and cons.
