Are pregnancy brain lapses a myth?

Hmmm... so being pregnant can affect your concentration? Says who?

According to a report carried out by Professor Christensen at the Australian National University, and published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, this is a myth. "Our results challenge the view that mothers are anything other than the intellectual peers of their contemporaries," she says.

Personally, I found early motherhood focused my brain like nothing else... with only 90 minutes max between naps to get things done, I really concentrated!

So no excuses then and it seems that this myth, like eating for two, must bite the dust.
