Pregnancy Brain!!

I've only seen one other post about this! 

I remember this with my first pregnancy since I was working at the time.  I was forgetting some pretty important things and making big mistakes!  Now I'm working from home pregnant with my third and I'm doing it again!  I want to tell my boss about it but don't want to seem like I'm just making excuses!!  Is there any real research about it out there? 

Monday I left the car running while me and the kids went in the grocery store!!  I've forgotten to check my boss' schedule causing missed meetings and forgotten to make calls I should have made!!

Help!!

Yes, There is a logical explanation to this!  Your brain tends to shrink while you are pregnant and doesn't usually go back to it's normal size until you are six months post partum. Look up 'brain shrinks during pregnancy' on any search engine and you'll have your answer.

I've heard that there is extra blood flow going to the baby instead of your brain, but I don't really know if that's true.
