Lots of folks swear by the popular Fitbit tracker to keep tabs on their workouts, steps walked, heart rate, weight, sleep, and so on. But nobody dons the device to see whether or not they’ve got a bun in the oven. But for one woman, the Fitbit did just that – it alerted her to her pregnancy!
The NYC-based gal and her hubby (“David” on Reddit.com), found out by the seemingly irregular metrics tracked by her Fitbit that she may be pregnant. Alas, she was! David posted a review on Reddit mentioning that the sensor seemed out of whack, since his wife had been relatively sedentary, yet the tracking would show her with a notably fast heart rate and major fat-burning calculations.
Another reader suggested that David’s wife may be with child, therefore causing such tracking. So, the couple took the next steps and learned she was indeed pregnant, and is due this October.
Fitbit surely went above and beyond its description in this case. Let’s hope for a healthy child … and that the couple doesn’t name it Fitbit!
Have you ever experienced something like this with a personal tracker during your pregnancy?
