There's a new way to make sure you stay healthy throughout your pregnancy: text4baby, a service that sends pregnancy tips straight to your cell phone. You'll get info on nutrition, immunizations, and birth defect prevention, among other things. And it's free—wireless carriers including AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint have agreed to waive all fees for receiving the texts.

To use it, text "BABY" to 511411 and you'll receive weekly text messages timed to your due date. The messages will continue through your baby's first birthday.

Think you'll use it?
