When I was pregnant and for a few months after My head seemed in a fog. I forgot everything, and when i tried to remember something I knew that i knew I couldn't. I would lose my train of thought mid sentence and not be able to regain it. I decided to check it out, and this is what i came up with (copy/paste from about.com):
One of the theories includes brain shrinkage. Saying that the brain shrinks 3-5% during pregnancy, which takes approximately six months after birth to return to normal. Or the theory that the problems are driven by hormones during pregnancy. While others believe that it is just a period of time where the mother-to-be is reflecting inward and the introspection and problem solving of the future is what causes the mental fuzziness.
What do you think? Anybody else experience anything like this?
