Placenta Brain

Call it what you will, pregnant women have a reputation for being a little forgetful. Now some Canadian researchers are asserting that mothers carrying male fetuses have better memories than those carrying female fetuses. Statisticians: is 39 women a significant sample size? Seems a little small to me.

I wonder if there are any differences in the prenancy dreams you have if you're carrying a girl versus a boy?

I can tell you for certain that when my wife was pregnant about a year ago with our boy, she was incredibly forgetful. In fact we had a running joke about how dumb being pregnant made her. She is really very smart, but she couldn't keep anything straight.

Been there!

Hopefully she's back to her usual sharp self these days.
