As Monty Dimond writes, being a bit fuzzy when you’re pregnant is one thing, but having to write ‘You have a two year old, feed him’ on your hand is a whole new level of crazy.
I think the kid that is currently growing inside me is devouring my memory at a seriously alarming rate.
A soon as I fall pregnant (this is my second baby) it’s a small miracle if I can remember my right from my left.
People laugh it off when you say you have ‘pregnancy brain’; but I have a bad case of it and it’s driving me nuts. If anyone has ever doubted if this is a real thing or not, spend two minutes with me, I’m all the proof you need.
When you wake up one morning and you are only running at half speed, it’s confronting and frustrating. I guess that is punishment for having unprotected sex.
I’m one of those people that usually have a pretty great memory; I manage to remember things that happened yonks ago, so much so that my partner thinks I’m like a memory rain man. At the moment though my memory is so bad that I almost need to write my name on a post it note each night before bed so I remember who I am when I wake up.
I decided to do a little research into ‘preggo brain’ which I recently found out is also referred to as ‘mumnesia’. I like that, it makes it sound a little quirky and cute even though it’s anything but.
I went to the place I go to a lot for advice, self diagnosis and general information…Dr Google. Bless her cotton socks. I typed in, ‘is pregnancy brain a real thing, I’m feeling seriously dumb?’ To my utter horror the first thing that appeared was a study saying it’s all baloney.
Of course that made my hormones rage and I felt terrible un-holy things towards the people who conducted this study. Then I quickly forgot why I was so mad.
I did, however, stumble across a forum of fellow preggos experiencing what I am.
