We all have heard about “pregnancy brain,” but is it for real? We are not so sure after reading this, but it looks as if morning sickness and hormonal changes do create an environment of forgetfulness.
According to IFLScience.com,
My friend recently asked me: “Why have I become so forgetful since I became pregnant?” I told her I didn’t know, but that I’d look into it. She then followed with: “I was going to ask you to explain something else to me, but I totally forgot what it was.”
While a number of women – like my friend – complain that pregnancy has made them more forgetful than usual, the research on this topic is mixed. Like most changes that occur during pregnancy, hormonal fluctuations are an obvious possible culprit. Some women report no cognitive changes during pregnancy.
