The moment you decide you want to start a family, your life changes. You begin thinking as "we" instead of "I" and suddenly everything in life becomes more precious than it was before. The fact that getting pregnant can be difficult seems unfair, but then you remember that technology has come a long way since our mothers went through this phase of life. It seems as if there's just about an app for everything these days, and that doesn't exclude fertility tracking! No longer do you have to rely on the guesswork of natural family planning or expensive doctor's visits whenever you need a quick word of advice. Check out these apps that help track your fertility!
