Pregnancy Brain

This is my brain:

This is my brain on pregnancy:
Also note ridiculously long and frizzy hair.

Okay. I can admit to having the occasional daft moment when I'm not pregnant. Lately, however, I feel like I've been living through nine months of "the lights are on, but nobody's home." Here are just a few examples of my "pregnancy brain".

  • I left my keys in my car at Costco. Not in the ignition. On the front seat. In plain sight. With all the car doors unlocked. Nice, huh? Even better is that I had just volunteered to take Noah's friend Andrew home with me for a playdate. His dad stood there holding Andrew's booster seat, staring at me incredulously while I retrieved my keys from the front seat of my unsecure car. "Sure...let me take your child becuz I'm rill re-spawn-sibble like." Duh.

  • While grocery shopping I completely lost track of my shopping cart. It was there with me, and then it was gone. Thankfully, I had only put a few items in it so I just went back to the front of the store to get a new cart and started over.

  • I caught myself standing in front of the refrigerator with the door open, wondering where I had put my shoes.

  • One day I was reading a story to Noah and he said, "Mom. You already read that page."

  • This phone conversation: "Hi, this is Serena from Dr. Doctor's office. We received your payment with the credit card number, but you forgot to write the expiration date." "Oh, I'm so sorry. I'll bring it with me to my appointment tomorrow." "Okay, no problem."

  • Followed by this phone conversation: "Hi, this is Amy from Dr. Dentist's office. We received your payment with the credit card number but there was no expiration date..."

Guess who forgot to bring the expiration date to her doctor appointment today?


  1. That's okay. I'm not even pregnant, and I still can't apparently put my appointments on the proper day in my calendar. See you on THURSDAY.

  2. It makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one who flakes out on stuff. Thanks for that. =D
