If you choose Follow my pregnancy as your goal in the app, Flo will ask about your week of pregnancy. This information is important — it makes it possible for Flo to show you relevant insights and data.
Flo uses the term “gestational age” to describe how far along a pregnancy is. Gestational age is measured in weeks, and it’s counted starting from the first day of the last period. So if you know your week, you can specify it. If you don’t know it, Flo can calculate it for you based on the first day of your last period, your expected due date, or the date of conception.
After that, Flo will ask a couple of questions about your lifestyle and your previous pregnancies to personalize your experience in the app.
When you finish the onboarding process, you’ll get to the main screen. The main screen shows your gestational age, a visualization of the fetus at your current week, and your daily insights, where you can learn more about the development of your baby, changes in your body, what to expect this week, and other useful tips. More articles, courses, and videos are available in Insights.
If you would like to know more about how Flo calculates your week of pregnancy, you can tap the “i” icon. And if you would like to learn about what’s happening with your baby this week or during future weeks, tap Details.
To get an overview of your pregnancy dates, tap the calendar in the upper-right corner. The days of your pregnancy are highlighted in brown. The first day of pregnancy in the calendar is usually the first day of your last period. If you navigate to the Menu, you’ll also see Pregnancy settings where you can change your gestational age, add your due date, and specify the number of children you’re expecting. Starting on day 29 of pregnancy, it’s also possible to log a miscarriage or abortion. The option to log a delivery appears after 20 weeks have passed.
