Forgetting what you were going to say or what you were looking for, losing your car keys, forgetting your wallet at home…Being out of it during pregnancy is normal, due to the emotional and hormonal alterations. The increase in progesterone in the organism affects the area of the brain responsible for attention, which makes expectant mothers feel distracted and airheaded – a condition that can last for up to 40 days after birth. Also, we should consider the emotional whirlwind that each stage of pregnancy brings, right? To make sure you’re on top of your social, domestic, and professional commitments, jot down a list of things you need to do and pin it to the fridge, or better yet, write it down on your phone – make sure not to forget it somewhere 🙂
