Pregnancy causes memory loss

I had forgotten about this:
http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/conditions/02/05/pregnancy.memory/index.html

Oh, wait...

They don't mention the study about women's brains becoming more complex during early motherhood. I wonder what the social purpose of this research is--maybe we shouldn't work? maybe we're not as smart?

I've been suffering from memory loss for quite some time and after visiting http://www.photographic-memory.org, I have learnt so much more about memory loss, how to identify symptoms and exercises to improve my condition. I can see imporvement in my condition. You should try too if you are having the same problem as me.

I've had terrible problems with short term memory/working memory in the past year or year and a half, as well as problems with intermediate memory (drawing on experiences or work from a few weeks ago, remembering that I had specific medical tests, etc.). I read something about how pain rewires the brain and changes cognitive processes, and think this is true.

Thanks for the link--I'll definitely check out all the tips soon.
