A mombrain is a busy place. From the moment that you share the news that you’re expecting, there are all of these things that start to fill up your brain. The dates and stats everyone expects you to know at the drop of a hat, all the things that are good or bad or necessary or not recommended – it’s dizzying and it never stops.
