The free app for iOS and Android from Alt12 Apps also helps you track your daily weight and waist measurements, as well as your mood, energy, appetite, cravings, morning sickness, and other notes.
With the Carnegie Embryo Collection at the National Museum of Health and Medicine, specialists have defined normal human embryo development for decades, and created a Virtual Human Embryo database. Now app developers used the information to provide you with all this info in a more convenient form.
“The Embryo App uses mobile telecommunication and multimedia technologies to add interactive capabilities to the digital information, enhancing our understanding of embryo development,” they say. The app has videos showing human fertilization, photo micrographs of early stages of embryo development, digital images of the early stages both in 2D and 3D, and even a pregnancy calculator.
