Science Supports What You Already Know About Pregnancy Brain

Pregnancy brain doesn’t seem real until you’ve experienced it yourself. To men, it may seem impossible or even sad that their lovely, fertile, rotund partners have seemingly lost their minds due to having a bun in the oven.

But for those of us who’ve been pregnant and done stupid things like putting our phone in the refrigerator, locking ourselves out of the house because we left house keys inside, or getting to the store and realizing the grocery list is right on the counter where you left it… pregnancy brain is a very real – and very annoying – side effect of pregnancy. But can science confirm that it exists?
