“Where did I put my keys?”
“I forgot another doctor appointment!”
If you’re pregnant and these statements have become a part of your every day, you’re not alone. “Pregnancy brain” is a symptom of pregnancy that usually strikes during the first and third trimester and is marked by an increase of forgetfulness.
Pregnancy brain is more than just being preoccupied with growing a baby, it’s a combination of pregnancy hormones that make your brain work a bit slower and other symptoms (like fatigue) that also strike during pregnancy. Normally it’s not something you will have to live with forever, but for some women it can last until after delivery.
There are some ways you can reduce your fog and help you keep on top of all those things you have to remember (like the important doctor appointments)!
