Default Mommy brain

I felt a considerable problem with my memory and ability to concentrate during my first trimester. Now that that I'm on my second, the fog has lifted a little bit. I'm not sure how much of it is due to "mommy brain" and how much of it is a result of dealing with the stress of a major life change.

Apparently, mommy brain is common during pregnancy and post-partum, but a lot of doctors insist that moms over-diagnose themselves and it doesn't exist.

What do you think, is it real or is it a myth?

Oh, it's real. You will start forgetting things. And the "dropsies" are real too. Women seem to always drop stuff, especially food on their shirt, while pregnant. And then after the kids are born, you still have mommy brain. Oh, the joys of being a woman! Anytime we do something strange, we have some sort of hormornal thing to blame it on! hahahaha!
