Forgetfulness in Expecting Mothers.

February 12th, 2008

With each pregnancy I found myself getting more and more forgetful.  Having a baby meant losing very vital brain cells, and after each baby it seemed to get worse.  I am not sure if sure if I ever regained my memory completely, but I think after several years I am almost back to normal, unless I just forgot what normal was.

Luckily, I am not alone.  At least 80% of all women say that they become more forgetful during pregnancy, especially during the third trimester and that it continues even after delivery.  According to a recent study in Australia expectant mothers probably are more forgetful.  Based on their research, pregnancy turns pregnant mothers into 60 year olds, at least when it comes to their memories.  They say that women can become impaired for at least a year after giving birth.  Researches do not know why this happens.

If you are pregnant and forgetful, just keep in mind that you are normal, and that some day along with your body, you may get your mind back.
