Does being pregnant turn you into a bad driver? Possibly. A new study suggests women have more car crashes when they are expecting than they do in the years before or afterward.
One of the authors places the blame partly on what’s commonly referred to as “pregnancy brain” – the foggy thinking many women report as pregnancy progresses. The study says all the side effects of pregnancy- fatigue, nausea, insomnia, anxiety and distraction- could distract a woman from the concentration required to be a good driver.
