Finding stuff went wrong. I bought a maternity coat last week. At £60, it
was a big purchase. I lost it today :((((((
Approximately half of all pregnant women report increases in forgetfulness during the latter part of pregnancy and in the postpartum period.
In a 1998 study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Keenan and associates monitored the memory and anxiety or depression level of a group of women throughout pregnancy and in the postpartum period. A similar group of nonpregnant women were likewise monitored for comparison. While the length of material influenced the amount recalled for both groups, pregnant women in the third trimester showed a significant decline in memory. No such decline was noted for nonpregnant women. While pregnant women reported greater sleep disturbance, increased levels of depression and anxiety, this study found no link between these symptoms and decline in memory.
