Being pregnant do we lose our brain cells

Alcohol might block your brain from converting new memories into the kinds that are stored for a long time in your mind.
The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. As usual in pregnancy, it's just your pregnancy hormones having some fun — this time at the expense of your memory.
Long-term, or chronic, stress can shrink part of your brain and make it harder to focus and remember things.
A lack of quality shut-eye due to a number of sleep-busting conditions during pregnancy (especially common in your first and third trimesters) can also play a role, as can the fact that you're constantly zapped of energy (which your brain needs to stay focused).


This mineral is the building block for a memory-forming brain chemical called acetylcholine.
DHA-rich foods (including pregnancy-safe fish like salmon) are another nutrient that help supports healthy brain function and development – for both you and your baby. In contrast, music has a powerful connection to feelings and memories, so it sticks in our minds better. A fun fact: for reasons unknown, some research has shown that women pregnant with girls are, on average, more forgetful than those carrying boys. Researchers believe that eating plenty of choline-rich foods during pregnancy may help boost both your and your baby’s brain function.


Lastly, believe it or not your brain-cell volume actually decreases during the third trimester of pregnancy (which could explain why you can't remember what you just read about in that last paragraph).
