  Pregnancy Brain
You think you're doing ok. You go along, happy go lucky, la la la...
And then you realize--your brain has stopped functioning.

Case in point: My group at work has a staff meeting every other Thursday at 8:30. This has been the case for the 2 1/2 years I've been working here. I never missed one. Since I've been pregnant (less than 4 months), I've missed two. Both times I was taking my time getting to work, chatting with people when I got there, putting my lunch in the refrigerator, etc, etc... when I suddenly realize none of my coworkers are around and the conference room door is closed. I sheepishly walk into the meeting 30 minutes late, blushing and mumbling "Sorry."
This week I made sure to make it to the meeting on time. I was feeling very pleased with myself for remembering and being prepared.
But after the meeting I went to the cafeteria for a late second breakfast involving bacon. (I was hungry, ok?) I chatted with the very nice grill cook, then walked out with my food. I was halfway back to my desk when I realized I HADN'T PAID! Gaaah.

Pregnancy brain. Where will it strike next?
 
Comments:
Hee, hee, hee! I'm not saying I told you so, well I guess I am. Finally you understand my terrible brain the last 3 years!! :) Yeah!
I love you my friend. Keep up the funny stories.
 
I have a friend who says she lost even more brain cells through her breastmilk ... Id tell you who she is, but Im sure she wont remember even saying it .. (which will just prove her point, but mothers are defensive about thier failing minds, dont you know ...)
 
When I was pregnant with Kira, I once drove half the way to Morgan Hill before remembering I was actually heading to Costco in Almaden. Sigh.
 
I was going to post a comment, but got distracted by something else and immediately forgot what I was doing - haha.

My worst pregnancy brain moment to date was forgetting where the release for the gas cap was in my own car (the one I've owned for about nine years now). The gas station attendant had to show me where it was. I felt like a total imbecile!

Oh, Happy Belated 1st Mother's Day!

I married the rarest of creatures, a genuine redneck who was born and raised in the liberal San Francisco Bay Area. I'm a technophile married to a technophobe.

Need guitar stuff?
My favorite redneck can hook you up!
