I think that has to be the oddest thing I've ever heard. I'm just under 12 weeks preg. and it does seem somedays that i tend to be more forgetful and a little ditzy. I have a friend that just had a baby 6 months ago and she tells me it's normal. I just don't think it's possible for your brain to actually shrink during pregnancy though, but then again i'm not a doc. either.
