10/31 Pregnancy Brain: I can't believe I...

Who else is experiencing pregnancy brain already?!
Today alone I...
1. Forgot I had a funeral visitation to go to until my DH called and asked if I had gone yet. 
2. Had a lengthy phone call with my sister, only to be completely baffled 30 minutes later about what we talked about. I had to text and ask. 
3. Sat at a 4-way stop for almost a full minute waiting for the flashing red light to turn green.

The struggle is real!!

  • I think I shared this elsewhere, but I opened up my dryer after my microwave beeped (in my slight defense, they're both in my kitchen - but my dryer doesn't make any sounds when it's done!)

  • I know I mentioned this somewhere before, but I made it all the way to church before I realized I was wearing two different shoes.  It's not like I put them on as I was running out the door either.

    Last night, I asked my husband to clean a pot that I needed to make dinner while I gathered ingredients.  About a minute later, I was looking through the cabinets getting very frustrated because I couldn't find the pot I needed.

  • I made a phone call, then turned on my music because I was going to take the bus home. I ran back to where I work to frantically search for my phone because I couldn't find it anywhere, while I was listening to music on it. And I missed the bus.

  • And I just made myself a grilled cheese and left the paper in between the slices of cheese. Lovely.

  • I refilled my coffee canister after brewing a pot, when I was done filling it I went to put the scoop back in.... couldn't find it anywhere and I didn't even walk away from where we store it. I sat there dumbfounded for a few minutes until my husband asked what was wrong. Turns out I never took the scoop out of the canister BEFORE refilling it.

  • @MrsW524 I wore two different shoes to work one day, and never even realized it until the next day when I was getting dressed and couldn't find matching shoes in my closet.  They were even different heights!  I can't even blame pregnancy brain.  I just wasn't paying attention.

    @c1tym0m22 My DH's grandmother made him a grilled cheese with the plastic still on it when he was a kid.  Now, every time I make grilled cheese, he tells the story.  In her defense, though, she was a cook in a restaurant and was used to cooking with cheese with no plastic.  She just forgot she was at home!


    My pregnancy brain is that I can't remember what I'm saying.  I may be in the middle of a sentence and forget what I'm saying half way through it!

  • I walked into my kitchen and discovered that I'd left the kitchen faucet running. No idea how long it was on. I'm hoping it was under an hour.

  • I went to leave for work this morning, had my purse, lunch box and coffee in hand when I couldn't find my phone. I looked ALL over for it for a good 5 minutes (went back up stairs), before I checked my purse - turns out I had already put it in there. I have NO recollection of doing it.
  • @mamaelle27 wasn't that uncomfortable? that sounds horribly uncomfortable!

    -----------------

    This morning I opened a new carton of milk and threw the top away. I looked all over for it after I poured milk in my glass and couldn't find it anywhere. I finally found it in the trash.  :/

    I also found a bag of sugar in my refrigerator that I apparently put in there while I was making a cobbler. I have absolutely no idea why I put sugar in the refrigerator. :grimace:

  • @NamelessAria- Once I finished my errands and got my toddler to nap and actually stopped to think about myself, yes it was horribly uncomfortable! I have no idea how I went all morning without noticing.

  • I was at a family gathering this past weekend. I handed my baby to my sister because she wanted to take DD outside. A few moments later DH walked into the room and I almost had a panic attack because neither one of us had the baby. 
  • I was just down in my company cafeteria getting lunch. I started making my salad directly on the lunch tray instead of in a bowl. 
  • I turned my car off with out putting it in park!

  • I was talking to my sister while pouring cream into my coffee and ended up pouring about 2 cups of cream into the cup of coffee. That was some disgustingly milky coffee. 

    Also im constantly forgetting what I was talking about. 
  • I watched a two hour movie with my kid today and a few hours later, talking to my husband, I couldn't remember anything about it, or what we watched.

    It was The Incredibles.

  • I apparently asked my husband 3 times if the dishwasher was clean or dirty, and he told me clean. I then proceeded to start putting my dirty dishes in it.  He looked at me completely dumbfounded and explained that it was the 3rd time I asked and he told me the dishes in there were clean. 
    I guess I was under the impression that this started later inpregnancy, but I've noticed a few slips already!
