In brief: Pregnancy brain

Also called momnesia, is having bouts of forgetfulness during pregnancy.
Although normal, some theories of etiology suggest causes as hormonal changes, multitasking, or not getting enough sleep. It feels like walking into a room to get something, then not remembering what u went for about 5-10 times a day.
