Your baby is eating your memory
Alright, so your brain is slowly shrinking. What else is going on? Well, a lot actually!
First of all, your hormones are terribly busy and making a lot of progesterone, which has an inhibiting effect on your memory. Didn’t get enough sleep again last night? Your brain doesn’t get the chance to charge, so you forget things. Then we also have that little one inside of you, trying to grow really fast. The nutrient choline is important for your memory, but also for the formation of your baby’s brain. So what does the little rascal do? He eats up your supply of choline. Tip: this can partly be helped by eating the right food: milk, beef, soybeans, nuts, citrus fruits.
The last reason you keep forgetting, is because you have a new priority: your baby! Your new number one! This makes you mentally less present. In your head you’re thinking about your baby, about giving birth and all stuff you still have to do, so there is less room left in your brain for other, less important things.
Are you suffering from your pregnant brain? No worries, it will get better soon. Within no time you’ll be the one again. Or well, in any case within 32 weeks after giving birth. Thankfully time flies when you’re having fun. And what is more fun than life with your little baby?
