I dunno about y'all but when I was pregnant with my kids I'd swear my child would steal my brain cells, making me dumber. I recently found out, then did a google search, that a mother's brain does shrink during the final trimester of pregnancy. The theories as to why vary. The mom that told me said it was because blood that would normally go to Mom's brain gets rerouted to the baby instead. Some of the articles say it's a shrinkage of cells in general, not loss of volume.
