Pregnancy and forgetfulness: myth or reality?

Well.. I always seem to be forgetful the last trimester especially-I chalk it up to being tired.

However, my sister's grandma-in-law said it best. 'You lost your mind when you have your child, you get it back when you are done with menopause.'


for me it was absolutely a reality. I already barely know where my keys, purse or phone is at anytime but it was way worse when I was pregnant. I felt very scattered. I think between the exhaustion you experience from your body working so hard, and the emotions your are experiencing, and all of the worrying you do about setting up for the baby and being ready you just can't think about much else!
