Pregnancy Brain

The following occurred as I tried to tell Matt a story about a driving incident we had a week or so ago.

Me: Well, there was this guy pulling one of those...um...those things.

Matt: What?


Me: Um.  It's flat and it has wheels?  You have one...you pull it behind your car to carry big stuff?


Matt: A trailer?


Me: Yeah.

Oh, the joys of pregnancy.  Not only is my body no longer my own, but my brain seems to have skipped out on the whole shebang altogether.

Tell me I am not alone?  Did you ever experience 'pregnancy brain'?

  1. I'm afraid to say that I live with pregnancy brain even when not preg. Brandon just reminded me about the time I asked if a horse/donkey mix was a honkey?

    ....and I wasn't kidding....

    sigh

  2. I still suffer from it. I can't think of my words for ANYTHING. I say it goes from pregnancy brain, to breastfeeding brain, and then after breastfeeding, well...I think they suck your brain out along with the milk.

  3. Oh YES. I can remember a couple of really embarrassing instances of being in court trying to speak to a judge, and not being able to remember certain key words for the LIFE of me!

  4. Oh I do this ALL the time! It's like you can picture it and can describe it but can't think of the damn name! I hear it gets worse with each pregnancy... and that we'll never fully recover. Lord help us :)

  5. I STILL have it. I mean, now that J is 18 months old, I probably need to stop blaming my memory issues on that, but you can't make me! ;-)

  6. I have it bad this time. Last week, I got out of the shower without having washed my body. I just washed my hair and assumed I was done. Thanks to the pregnancy super sense of smell, I realized my mistake as I was toweling off...

  8. all.the.time. Although I don't feel like it got better it just morphed into "mommy mush brain".
    Today I was late for a meeting because I had convinced myself it started at 11:30 when it started at 11. Thankfully I could blame it on pregnancy brain! :)

  9. Know all about it!! The other day I asked Danny if he could get something out of the truck for me & he just looked at me like I'd lost my mind - I was holding the requested item in my hand & didn't even realize it!!! :)

  10. Last Friday at work I spoke excitedly about going on a date night with my husband the following weekend. On Monday everyone asked me about it and I couldn't for the LIFE of me remember what we had done or where we had gone! Somebody asked me on Tuesday if I had remembered yet, and I still hadn't! ;)

  11. Love it! I went to work when pregnant with Isaac with a pair of underwear stuffed down my jeans leg. That was one of my worst.

  12. Well, I'm in the same boat as you. I'm a little less than 11 weeks along with a due date of 10/10/11 and it's our second. Besides the incessant, mind-numbing and paralyzing nausea - my mind is useless. I can't put coherent sentences together, I forget more than I remember and I am always on the verge of falling asleep. I know I lost a lot of my brain when I was pregnant with our first, but I don't know how much I got back and have to lose with this one... :)

  13. Don't worry it eventually goes away, but I'm afraid to say it comes back every once in a while. I'm 45, and am going thru it again, hopefully it not early onset dementia, maybe just, OMG - menopause! HA
