Goodbye Thermometer, Hello Tempdrop

Thursday, April 17, 2014 2:00 PM Comments (3)

Wearable technology isn’t just a passing fad, it seems. I started paying attention when a friend raved about her Fitbit and my husband then started mentioning needing one in the same week.

Google Glass isn’t for me (probably ever). Tempdrop, however, might be. Says Techcrunch, “Tempdrop is a wearable sensor that makes it easy for people to monitor and record their basal body temperatures.”

Can you hear the hurrah from the NFP-challenged among us? Taking my temperature has long been right up there with scheduling dental appointments. All it takes is one day and I’m out of the groove and the habit is GONE.

And that one day that messes me up? Happens every weekend when I decide I will, in...READ MORE

Pregnancy Just Got Apped

Saturday, April 12, 2014 6:59 AM Comments (0)

One of the most moving moments in my pregnancies was when I went into the appointment where the doctor pulled out the little gadget, gooped up my tummy, and let me have a listen to my baby’s heartbeat.

Hearing the squish-squish-squish of the life within me made me feel…hope. It gave me something more tangible than the morning sickness and aches.

A heartbeat so unlike mine, and yet so linked to mine. A little person, growing inside me.

Thanks to Bellabeat, you don’t have to wait until that doctor’s appointment to hear that little heartbeat…AND you have a chance to SHARE it. All you need is your smartphone or device, a little gadgety thing from Bellabeat, and their app (iOS or Android).

As we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, and maybe even wear green, we also turn our thoughts and prayers to Ireland, where the respect for life has...READ MORE
