Reading the Conviser in the Delivery Room

Postby shepdawg » Sun Jul 14, 2013 12:06 pm

My baby is coming earlier than expected, and I'm reviewing the cmr during down times in the delivery room. I will not be able to do any of the final practise essays or mpqs for torts and contracts. Any chance I'll remember this stuff?

I generally don't unless there's something I don't get

Good luck and congrats!

Given what I know about your bar study habits from this forum, I'm sure you'll be just fine. You're probably already 75%+ of the Paced Program, which is more than most will do. You've got this.

I've been using it to make flash cards. I like it a lot better than the lectures + notes.

I agree. I disregarded the CMR for the first four weeks, but now I'm finding it very useful. Probably more useful than the lecture notes.

Right after I gave birth someone told me that the oxytocin your body releases during labor & delivery can cause amnesia, but the good side is it will ease your memory of the labor pains a bit! I remember very little of the first several months after delivering, but that could also be because of the huge life change our family was going through.

Your question made me curious if it was really true, so I dug around and found this article - http://matthew.dynevor.org/_downloads/m ... memory.pdf (published in a journal called Psychoneuroendocrinology). According to this article, much of this memory loss from the hormones would have already happened by now during your pregnancy, so if you haven't noticed it yet I doubt you will notice a great change. This article also mentions that an estrogen deficit is a pretty big issue and oxytocin seems to mainly lessen motor learning, which doesn't matter for the bar. So I wonder if you could go on birth control pills right after you delivered to start replacing estrogen which causes the actual memory recall deficits.

Interesting stuff... Ask your OB, but either way, I'm sure you will be heading into the exam with a happy heart, which can only help and probably will more than offset any memory loss that pregnancy and motherhood have brought!! :) Also, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
