Extreme baby brain? I'm only 9.5w prego and feel like an idiot

Hi.  I'm only 9 and 1/2 w pregnant and I feel like an absolute idiot.  I work in a law firm and correspond with clients and outside parties frequently via email, etc.  I find that my emails are missing words, or complete sentences that I am certain I typed... I also find that my mind goes completely blank several times a day.  Anyone else going through something similar?  Any tips or tricks to alleviate my feelings of extreme idiocy?  Tongue Tied  Can I expect to feel this way for the next 6+mos?

    I hate to say it, but I think it lasts long after the birth :T I've had it extra bad lately too, mine is coupled with an urge to cry in frustration every time I realize something stupid I did. I have to talk myself down like a little kid, "just breathe, relax, it's no biggie." Ha, I'm a mess!

    I forget things a lot. I left our food the other day outside... Yep all my groceries. I found myself putting things that don't belong in the fridge too. And forgetting things I normally never would. I'm a scatter brain

    I had this with my 2nd child but not with my first. I had some pretty derpy moments such as leaving a plastic rubbermaid container full of cupcakes in the oven. The next day I turned on the oven and melted the container and cupcakes inside the oven. The smell was terrible so I had to open all my windows in the dead of winter (brrrr!) then I realized that my oven was toast. So I ended up having to pay to get another one. I am sure there are other moments but I have long since forgotten about them. This one moment my sister who was living with me at the time, won't ever let me live it down.
