daytime tv

I'm officially on self-imposed maternity leave now, which means I'm allowed to watch daytime tv, completely guilt-free.

I was watching Dr Oz this week and he said that during pregnancy, your brain actually shrinks by up to 8%!! You don't lose brain cells, but the ones that you do have, get smaller.

And then, after you give birth, your brain re-wires really quickly so you can adapt to taking care of your new baby, and it apparently gets even more powerful than before you got pregnant.

How amazing is that?!
