Mom Brain, It’s A THING!
This week, the gorgeous mama of two and blogger Keisha of the 'Loving Littles Blog' warns us: mom brain is the real deal!
Before having kids I always thought it was just a saying that all moms used to say, the same as hearing a mom say “I sneeze and I pee my pants!” Now being a mom for 10 years I have come to totally understand the mom brain meaning and the “peeing your pants” thing as well!
But yes, mom brain is the real deal. You’d think as mothers we’re all supposed to magically hold all information and contain it all and remember everything in a minute. Well no, that's just not the case here!
I mean it can be quite humorous at times and others it’s just downright annoying. Scientifically it’s the hormones in our bodies changing and creating a total hot mess inside of us moms. One more thing to add to the list I guess. Life sure is not boring with a mom around that's for sure.
My mom brain has been like a really funny mischievous black cloud following around everywhere I go. I used to think it was from lack of sleep and the whole newborn baby thing. Not the case, my son is 10 and my daughter is 4 yet I still seem to have this MOM BRAIN THING. Examples being, and raise your hand if you experienced any of these symptoms…. Locking keys in car, putting the milk in the cupboard, clearly leaving behind baby shoes, forgetting wipes at home on the counter, calling your kids by different names and just simply forgetting all those little things like pick up dry cleaning on the way home.
Literally not life ending but anyone who will call me crazy or forgetful I remind them that it’s mom brain. Because all of us moms have so much on the go, we’re constantly thinking of others and making sure everything is prepared and remembered for everything. We carry stress on our shoulders that yah, 90% of the time we can’t remember it all. We make mistakes and screw up. Our brains are just so full how could it possibly carry it all!

YOUR GUIDE TO FINDING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR CHANGING SHAPE

From cleverly designed maternity friendly but not maternity only dresses with discreet nursing access to maternity pants with stretchy elasticated waistbands that can adjust to your post-partum shape too.
Find out what styles work for your stage of pregnancy and beyond!
How does Mayarya sizing work?
Mayarya follows international sizing standard. We take every effort to keep our sizing true and consistent and we want you to be able to wear the same size across all garment types in Mayarya. However, there will be occasional variations in the fit of some products depending on the style and fabric.
How does the size guide work?
The first step to determine which size to buy is by measuring your body size. Before you start measuring, remember to use non-stretchable tape and to keep the tape close to your body without depressing it. We aligned our products to the body measurements of the International Sizing Chart.
Please see our 'Mayarya Clothing Size Guide' below for more details:
Bottoms are one of the first items you realize your belly started growing! At Mayarya, we have under belly and over belly styles to accommodate your style and comfort needs.
Under Belly Pants, Treggings and Leggings
They sit below your growing bump and are particularly great during warmer seasons as it means less layers for your bump. A great solution for women with very sensitive skin as it does not cover your belly. Mayarya's under the belly pants look much like regular pants with stretchy, elasticized waistband so you can continue wearing them post-pregnancy too!
Over Belly Pants and Leggings
They are particularly great if you want some support around your belly. We choose breathable and stretchy fabric so it will not restrict the growth of your baby. You can fold them down during the early stage of pregnancy, roll up during 2nd and 3rd trimesters and roll/fold them down post-pregnancy.
DRESSES AND TOPS
Our dresses and tops are designed for both pregnant and non-pregnant women in mind so you can wear them seamlessly post-pregnancy.
You can select your size according to your pre-pregnancy size since our clothes are designed to fit from your first trimester to your third trimester.
Our smart design allows more room around your belly during pregnancy but falls down nicely on your body after pregnancy.
If you have gained more than the average pregnancy weight according to your doctor, you could go one size up from your pre-pregnancy size. If you are between two sizes, we recommend you pick the larger of two sizes.
