Having a Baby Can Shrink the Brain

Look what I learned through a simple internet search today.

There may be a physical reason to explain why many pregnant women become
forgetful and find it hard to concentrate, research suggests. A study has shown that women's brains shrink during late pregnancy and can take up
to six months to regain their size.
Through the ages, the difficulties of pregnant women may have been dismissed as emotional by unsympathetic men, who complain at their wives' inability to remember anything. Women can also feel concerned that they have become less intelligent.... By Roger Highfield, Science Editor

I knew it.
