Baby + Menopause = I ain’t got no brain

I am not alone when saying that during pregnancy I felt like I was playing both parts of Dumb and Dumber.  The journey is real.  Cognitive problems like trouble focusing and remembering things, confusion, reading difficulties, and forgetfulness were common place for me, especially this last time around.  This phenomenon has been rightfully called "baby… Continue reading Baby + Menopause = I ain’t got no brain
