Do we have a pregnancy brain thread yet?

I didn't see one, so I'm starting one! What dumb stuff have you done lately?

Ughh. When we were on vacation we picked up several bags of Hawaiian coffee for ourselves and for family and a couple coworkers. I specifically, intentionally put "our" coffee bag in the spot in the fridge where our coffee always goes, and put the gift coffee bags on a totally different shelf on the opposite side. Well, DH and I take turns making morning joe on the weekends, so Sunday was my turn. I opened the fridge, grabbed a bag, opened it, used it, and just when I was putting it back on our usual shelf did I realized I'd taken the coffee meant for my parents. The only solution is to give my parents the bag that was meant for us, which is irritating because we specifically bought the one for us based on how good it smelled (and it's 2oz more than the bag for my parents). 
When I told DH he wasn't pleased, but said we could swap ours for the one he was going to give his coworker, considering said coworker isn't aware DH bought him anything. But it was a cheaper brand too and I didn't want to give my parents cheap stuff (uh, not that any Hawaiian coffee is cheap but still, there were a lot of options across the price ranges).
Told DH, "You can't let me do anything alone!!"

    DS still uses the training potty. I was really tired and after congratulating him after going number 2 on the potty, I stupidly plopped it into the sink instead of the toilet. I realized my mistake AS I WAS DUMPING it but..it was too late. Stupid, stupid, stupid! Also, I left the house with no wallet and no money last Friday. I ate dry cereal that day. Come back to me, brain. I need you.

  • I haven't had a singular incident yet, but I do feel way less focused, and I hate it. So many things need done at work but I honestly feel like I am attention-deficit, and then just nothing gets done.

  • Hello there @DeansGirl14 just a thought, but this maybe best suited for the weekly ransoms thread, or maybe even the symptoms thread... I could be wrong...

  • I went to the store specifically to buy a cat pooper scooper.  Walked into walmart and completely forgot what I went there for.  Stood there for a good 5 minutes trying to remember, unsuccessfully, so I just left with a candybar! lol

    Yesterday my husband and I went to let our friend's dog out 40min from our house. On our way back, almost at home, I go get my sunglasses and the case is empty. I tell my husband that I left at our friend's house so we drive back there. No sunglasses. I left them at home. Oops.

  • I usually wake up in the middle of the night and get a glass of milk to settle my stomach.  One night I poured a glass of chicken broth instead (no, they don't look alike).  But I figured it out before I actually drank any, thank goodness.

    I've been thisclose to throwing stuff away too! The cabinet with the trash can is right next to the fridge. 

    I'm also afraid for the day I do something like put my house keys in the dishwasher. My friend did that...

    Since having DS I don't always carry one, a lot of times I just clip my keys on my wristlet and tuck my phone in my pocket.  That day we were out and about looking at dishwashers and I took a small cross body bag with me.  I'm really thinking I need to get something bigger that I can see

  • Twice last week I left my keys in my car twice. It wasn't until I went to start it after work and couldn't find them in my purse when I noticed them in the passengers seat. 

    Yesterday I was pouring my protein drink into just a water bottle and when I put the lid back on the protein drink, I accidentally grabbed the tiny lid to my water bottle and dropped it in the drink. So it's just floating in there now. 


    @DeansGirl14 I love this thread! I think itd be good for a weekly one as I'm sure we will just continue to do more dumb things well until after babies are here!

    I've left my work ID card in my computer several times and went home. I haven't done that in years but to keep doing it over and over was driving me crazy. Now I triple check that I have it before leaving work because I can't get on base without it...I can but it's just a hassle having to stop, get out, go in the building and get a pass and etc.

  • A couple of weeks ago I realized my dress was inside out when I was in the staff bathroom looking at myself in the mirror wondering why I see the tag.  :| 
    This past a Sunday I left my bag in my friends house....realized as I was carefree walking to my car.

  • I was just watching a recorded show, and couldn't figure out why my tv was acting up, every time I tried to fast forward it would skip 10 secs backwards, almost called my husband in to see if our DVR was broken. After about 5 rounds of this I looked at my hand and realized I was holding the remote upside down. So I was in fact hitting the skip back button.

    @Shan870 I've driven up to base twice just to have to turn around and go get my ID.. less inconvenient for me because I was just going to get groceries but still annoying.

    I also left my keys hanging in my front door.. overnight. Good thing we live in a nice neighborhood.

  • About a week ago I was going to open a can of tuna and couldn't find the can opener. I went through the whole kitchen, emptied out the drawers and everything. I texted my fiance all upset cause I really wanted to make a sandwich, and after going back and forth with him and realizing it was nowhere to be found, I gave up and ate something else. I found the can opener a couple hours later, in the fridge...

  • @DeansGirl14 you will appreciate this, being a fellow Chicago FTM...I went outside yesterday to shovel (just the light snow on our stairs) start going only to realize I am 'shoveling' with our car brush. Let me tell you, that did nothing at all. Though my dog appreciated me essentially brushing snow at her.

    ROFL!!
    We don't have a garage with our home but we sprung for a parking deck rental nearby for the winter. (Obviously, that's why winter was mild, because we took precautions.) I am SO GLAD I don't have to deal with digging our car out of the street. With the drifts yesterday it would have been awful. 
    And, knowing me, I'd have forgotten where it was parked too...

  • I have been forgetting the things I need to do at work and home. Like last night I kept going to the kitchen and felt confused to why I was there and then went to sit down and then I was like 10 mins. later oh yeah I need to change my daughters diaper that is where I was headed too my bedroom. At work now i write what I need to do because then my mind goes blank and my boss tells me did you do this already and I am like aggghhh I am getting there and he just tells me jokingly that I am too in love right now lol

  • We settled on a house today, so that means 3,000,000 times of signing my name and dating documents.... I must have asked my husband about ten times what the date was. Never mind I just dated something about 30 seconds ago

    I called to schedule my A/S yesterday and the lady asked for my social security number. I told her the number and she asked me to repeat. I spent the next 30 seconds babbling unable to remember it.

  • I keep turning on the wrong burner in the stove.  Thankfully nothing else has been on the other burners.  I also forgot to turn the oven on and panicked when dinner wasn't cooking.  We are really late yesterday.

  • We were playing rummy tonight and I just kept laying things down in the wrong order. 

    And I've just been so clumsy. I keep dropping things.
