I can’t remember anything! I wander around the apartment wondering what I was doing and why I’m wandering!

I have actually forgotten meals, or been convinced I’d already eaten them!

I also mix up similar words: Like directive and directional, or a million other words.

Last week, I started crying hysterically because I couldn’t open a jar of mandarin oranges. DH came home and said something to me, and I immediately burst into tears. I kept saying “I feel SO crazy, I don’t know why I’m crying!” as I laughed and sobbed at the same time. Poor DH was so confused.

I have gotten clumsier…and yes, forgetful. I made mroe trips to the store than I’d like to admit. Also I have a hard time paying attention…it’s kind of embarrassing. I hope things will get better after first trimester….because I feel like I’ve lost half my brain cells.

@Songbird29:  I’ve run loads of laundry with no detergent. I also left rice on the stove & burned the hell out of my nice pot 🙁

I am just more forgetful all around like forgetting my keys or putting on socks. However….

Thank God I am forgetful (sometimes) because I give my dog his phenobarbital in a piece of dog food each morning, and my pills and his are located right next to each other, but I have been in this routine so long that it is as easy as breathing to me. One morning I ended up eating the dog food!!!! I spit it out, more concerned with his epilepsy pill in it, but I forgot to put that in anyway, so I was in the clear.

I eventually did give him his pill in his dog food and just took my pills with water 🙂

My preggo brain is bad!

Grocery shopping is hilarious, I should have video cameras following me back and forth. I will be in the bakery, then I’ll be down in dairy and go “oh yeah buns” and back and forth over and over. Takes me twice as long!

A few weeks ago, I offered to make DH a grilled cheese. I put together the sandwich, put it in the pan, decided to sit down for a minute while it cooked on one side, and next thing I knew, smoke alarm was going off. Completely forgot about the sandwich!

@Lyndzo:  I actually texted DH the other day because I was so excited. I went to the grocery store during my lunch hour and knew I had to get 4 things. I picked up 3 of them quickly, and stood there dumbfounded as to what the 4th was. Suddently it occurred to me what it was, and I was so excited! I remembered all 4 things i went in for!! DH didn’t think it was as exciting as I did….

I got out of the shower last week and started toweling off only to realize that my hair was wet, but not washed.

I had to get back in to shampoo and condition.  Derrrrr.

I totally just showed up a whole day early to my Dr. Appt. The receptionist was like “uhhh I don’t see you on here” and I was like “Yes, I’m sure. I have an appointment at 1:30 on Wed…ooooh. Sorry.” The really spazzy thing was that I had it written down on my pretty little desk calendar for tomorrow and for some reason I just thought I goofed so I whited it out and re-wrote it for today. Derp.

And it gets better!  When you have your baby, then you get Mommy brain which is even worse 🙂 LOL.  I’ve got Mommy and pregnancy brain going on… I should probably not be alone in the house.

My aunt was in town earlier this week and the ONLY day I was able to see her was Thursday. We had planned to meet in downtown Seattle, I was going to drive and they walked over on the ferry. Well, it was like 1 in the afternoon and my mom keeps calling me and I finally answer and I’m like “Hey” and she is like “You forgot didn’t you”.. HAHA. Sad thing is, the boyfriend had taken the car to work because I hadn’t asked him to use it, so I was stranded at home and didn’t get to see my aunt at all. I felt really bad, but I COMPLETELY forgot. I blame it on the excitement from my NT scan.

I’ve had several but here are 2 that I will not forget:

Pregnancy Brain Moment #1: I was driving my son to school this morning and the car started smoking! I panicked and was about to pull over when I saw that the temperature didn’t show my car was overheating or anything.. A few seconds of confusion later, I realized I was actually driving through a patch of fog…

Pregnancy Brain Moment #2: I was at my OB’s office and was ready to do the “weight check and pee in a cup” routine. I was so distracted about thinking what my weight was gonna show that I forgot to actually pee in the cup. I had it in my hand the whole time and by the time I realize what happened, it was too late
