Women are outsourcing their reproductive cycles to their mobile gadgets.
A new service from BabyCenter.com, "Booty Call," will send you 18 text messages — three per menstrual cycle — letting you know your optimum baby-making window. Sample text messages can include things like:
"Your fertile window starts in 1 week. Using a lubricant can get in the way of getting pregnant."
"Your fertile window starts in 1 week. Find out if your chances of getting pregnant are better in the morning."
"Your fertile window opens today! Tender breasts are one of the first signs of pregnancy!"
"Your fertile window opens today and lasts 5 more days. Stress can get in the way of conception so relax and get a massage, meditate, or take a yoga class."
"Today is your last fertile day! If you get pregnant during this cycle, your due date will be on or around 6.25.2009."
So if the idea of having your phone pester you and provide helpful advice sounds awesome to you, this could be your lucky month.
