Pregnancy brain... Oops did I do that...

So pregnancy brain already?  Have you heard of this? It's when you completely forget shit or do the stupidest thing for no reason...   I swear mine never came back after the first kid and it just keeps getting worse. I use to remember EVERYTHING! Now I can't remember yesterday. 

I'd love to hear some of your stories, past or present.
  I'll add my newest one in the comment section

  • I constantly forget where I'm going with my stories, I'll go into the kitchen when I actually want to go to the bathroom, what is 2+2? Growing bigger and dumber every day

  • I was hosting a meeting and it was going to be a long one. So I get everything ready. I got snacks for everyone organized where everyone was sitting put handouts they wanted printed at their chairs etc. it gets to my part of the meeting and I have nothing. No handouts no notes. Wtf?! I had to pause the meeting excuse myself and print out everything and then present on the fly. What a loser. They're my friends so they were nice but damn I was embarrassed.

  • Yep. I have a checklist on my bathroom mirror: Prenatal vitamins, deodorant, brush your teeth. It's sad, really. Necessary, though, as I left the other day and completely forgot to brush my teeth or put on deodorant.

    I constantly forget deodorant, it's so bad I had to go buy extra to keep in the car!

  • I can't remember anything....for instance, I went to the store after work yesterday and forgot about 3/4 of what I was supposed to be picking up...and I even had the list on my phone.

  • @shaunessa I MISS HEB!! I grew up in San Antonio, so it was really hard to adjust to not having them here in North Texas. Central Markets are not the same. :(

  • This summer my DD has been at school Tue/Thurs for "camp" and with my MIL Mon/Wed. DH does drop off, I do pick up. Last Monday, I stroll into her school, go straight to her classroom only to stop in horror and realize. . . It is Monday, she doesn't come to school on Mondays, she is across town at my MILs house. I felt like such an idiot and waved like a doofus to her teachers, saying oops, see you tomorrow! Thankfully, next week she goes back to 5 days a week so I can't make that mistake again!

  • I had a post-conference for my evaluation this morning.  Completely forgot about it and wasn't even at school while she was waiting for me (even though I had set up my stuff for it before leaving yesterday).  And I double booked myself twice today!  I'm not usually like that at all. 

    This did not happen to me with my first!

  • Worst part about mine is we aren't telling anyone for a couple months that were pregnant so I can't even explain why I'm so dumb right now! :neutral:

  • I work for a pastor and a couple called to schedule marital counseling and before I could call them back I LOST their phone number. Fortunately they called again five days later but I felt so horrible. It was my fault they weren't getting the help they needed. I also keep putting stuff in the fridge I'm not supposed to.

  • I had been reading all of these stories and thinking to myself, I have nothing to share...until today. I packed yogurt and cereal for DS for breakfast at daycare in little bowls. I also packed peanut butter for my apple at lunch in a little bowl. Somehow the yogurt and peanut butter switched and I sent my son peanut butter in a bowl for breakfast. I didn't realize until I went to eat my lunch. I am sure that his daycare thinks I am nuts! Although, I might have enjoyed peanut butter and cereal for breakfast. Lol.

  • DH found a dirty shirt and a pair socks of mine in the pantry the other day. Must have put those there when I was cleaning but I totally don't remember doing it, haha. He gave me a wtf look.

  • Got in my car this morning and couldn't figure out why I couldn't put it into reverse.  It's because it wasn't started...not only that, I didn't even have the keys with me, I forgot them and my wallet inside.

  • I'm very forgetful this time around.  I almost forgot I was babysitting 2 girls yesterday that I was supposed to get from school.  Thankfully I was there to get my son and they saw me.  When I got home my oldest SS (who's 18) said "you sure have been forgetting a lot lately". We haven't told him were pregnant... Again...
