Many women don't feel as sharp as usual when they're pregnant, especially during the third trimester, and research also shows that some develop memory deficits. It’s perfectly normal to have memory lapses or be forgetful when you’re busy, stressed, short on sleep, or multitasking. Nobody's memory is sharp in that state. Surging hormone levels and new priorities may explain why pregnancy brain happens, but the pregnancy also determines what gets your attention. Your IQ doesn't change, but your priorities do.
