Pregnancy Does Not Cloud the Brain...Ha-Ha-Ha

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine who is pregnant. We had a little chuckle over some of the things that happen to pregnant women. So, when I read this article I had to laugh.

I am all for girl power and I really believe that we are the stronger sex where it is really important, but I think that the researcher has not had children. I believe that our mind shuts down to non-important things like how we usually drink our coffee, whether our clothes are on inside out and if we only managed to get mascara on one eye that morning since we are growing a little life in us and we must prepare for the challenging days ahead of motherhood. Maybe I am just crazy and only my friend and I have experienced the "Duhs" of pregnancy...but I doubt it!

LOL! From what I've heard, they studied the wrong thing. I don't know that the duh! moments you talked about are really related to cognitive function or memory... Try again Australians!
