what is the dumbest thing you have done because of pregnancy brain?

I have pregnancy brain bad!  It goes way beyond just forgetting things.  I have completely lost the ability to multitask

My dumbest:

I watered my cup of change instead of my plant

    I scratched myself with my nail and it hurt and I looked down at the nails on my right hand and freaked out because they were SUPER long and I KNEW I had just cut my nails... looked at my left hand.... I had only cut the nails on my left hand. *Sigh*

  • I put the peanut  butter in the fridge and then freaked out because I NEEDED some and we didn't have any... at least not where we usually keep it. I felt so stupid when I found it in the fridge the next day after going out and buying some.
  • The basics... ice cream in the fridge and milk the cabinet type things. :)

  • We went out for a family dinner the other night and I started driving in the wrong direction to a restaurant I've been to a hundred times. My husband just asked if I had changed my mind about the restaurant choice. It took me a minute to realize what I was doing. Then I left the car running and got out. Good thing I can't lock it without the keys in my hand.

  • I freaked out because I thought I ate cheese that was over 6 months past the expiration date, only to have my DH point out that it expires in December 2012 and it was still good.  Somehow I've gotten ahead of myself and already thinking it's 2013.

  • I should show my DH this. He doesn't believe me that pregnancy brain is real!

  • So far -

    I've sat and stared at a spreadsheet for work for 30 minutes and could not figure out what it was I was working on.

    And unfortunately, more than once, I have been driving and forgotten where I was driving too.

    I made egg and corn fried fritters, 9 of them. Only when I served them did I realize I had forgotten to put any egg. Duh! No wonder they were a disaster!

  • I forgot to take my wallet while grocery shopping. (luckily I live one minute away from the store and drove home and back in less than five minutes)

    I also wore two different color flip flops to target. Didn't notice until I was on my way home!

    Bah, I did this too only I tried to convince my credit card--which expires 12/12--needed to be replaced because it was 7 months past its expiration.

     My big one for today...made 6,200 copies of a flyer to send out only to realize afterwards I put the wrong phone number down.

  • I should save this for FFFC - but I'm putting on my big girl panties - so flame me if you must.  I almost forgot to buckle DS in his car seat the other day.  I got him in the car and in his seat, he was complaining about his shoes, so I took his shoes off, and I closed his door, went and got in the driver's seat, turned on the car, and put it in reverse.

    THANK GOD he is a creature of extraordinary routine and habit, because he said, "Mommy, buckle me up."  And I looked in the rear view mirror and almost had a heart attack.  

    Major pregnancy brain and mommy FAIL.  :(

  • I asked dh where my phone was as I was talking on it.

    At my first dr appointment, the nurse called Brooke's name, and I just got right up to follow her....yeah, my name's not Brooke. Good thing it was the OB's office and everyone understood pregnancy brain!

  • Went to leave the house for work last week. Walked out the door with my work bag, lunch and even a bagel for breakfast. Locked the door and got into my car. Went to turn the car on and realized that I had no keys to do so----and now I was locked out of my house. Luckily DH was home, so I called him from my cell and he let me in to get my keys.

     Today, another key incident. I went to walk down the street to lunch with my boss and realized half-way down the street that I was carrying my car keys. Very random. *Note I work in a downtown city and once you park your car you pretty much leave it and walk anywhere you need to go.

     So many times I am doing something and just forget what I am doing. I am learning to just move on and eventually it will come back to me what I was supossed to be doing. I swear this never happened before I was pregnant. It's very annoying.

    Dont feel bad, DHs parents forgot to buckle him in when he was little and he opened the door while the car was moving and rolled across the street.  His mom felt like a major failure. Luckily he was just fine and was laughing.  It is a big joke in the family now.   (he was about 1)

  • 3 times last week I made a big deal about making sure I got a full load of dishes in...and then didn't turn on the machine.

  • these are making my day...

    I am a nurse and at the end of my shift we have to give report to the next shift on the patient's we had overnight.  One night I had two patients (just two, mind you, not like six or something more forgettable) and I gave report on the first one and just left without giving report on the second one.  Just went home.  The next nurse was looking for me I guess and when they realized I had left they all laughed and blamed it on pregnancy brain!!!  Horribly embarrassing!

  • I have quite a few...

    I'm sure some of you remember my January 2012 due date on our pregnancy announcement.

    I forget what I'm talking about mid sentence, not mid conversation, mid freaking sentence.

    I forget about entire conversations. Just the other night DH was making smoothies. He asked me my opinion about a bunch of the ingredients and their amounts. I apparently answered him. He brought my the smoothie 5 minutes later and I freaked out about the ingredients - the ones I had JUST told him to include.

    I've passed streets or turns multiple times while driving.

    I blamed DH for deleting things on the DVR. He said he saw me do it the night before. Although I still question this...

    I've gone to the store for something specific and I end up walking out with a bunch of other things, none of which include what I went to the store for.

    I could seriously keep going. All of my baby brain moments are a total running joke in our home!
