Hey has anyone heard of pregnancy brain?
They say that your memory declines during pregnancy, and that you lose focus and will also feel like you're in a fog. I am so worried this will affect my studying for the boards. Any experiences or stories?

Hi Juliedulie,

Hoping some users who have been pregnant will spot this and chime in, but wanted to let you know it had been seen.

It's definitely a phenomenon I've heard about, but I'm having trouble scaring up data on it that looks reliable. If you haven't, you might want to check out the "Our Bodies, Ourselves" blog or Planned Parenthood's site as well as ours.
