|Hormones during pregnancy have long been blamed for women's apparent tendency to think less clearly, but new research suggests that this is nothing but an old wives' tale.
The study by the Australian National University's centre for mental health research also debunked the myth that women have worse memories during pregnancy.
For the research, 2,500 women aged between 20 and 24 were interviewed and examined first in 1999, then in 2003 and again in 2007.
Of the women that were pregnancy during their second and third interviews, it was discovered that they scored no better or worse on logic and memory tests than previously.
