Prego Brain

Mom-To-Be: I used to have one of those steel-trap memories. The kind that would drive my husband crazy because I never. Forgot. Anything. (A very handy tool when having a spat.)

Pregnant woman
And then I got knocked up.

I'd gone to see a psychic before I conceived, and she'd told me that not only would I get pregnant, but I'd have a textbook pregnancy. I smiled, thinking she meant that everything would go smoothly, and that none of that stuff that happens to other moms-to-be would happen to moi. Now I realize that she meant I'd have ALL of the "fun" and common pregnancy side effects affect me -- and then some.

I can deal with the weight gain and the mood swings and even the disgusting stuff no one talks about. But what I can't deal with is my inability to remember anything. My memory was something that I could always rely on. Someone needed to recall a story from high school? I was on it! Someone wondered who'd won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2000? They called me! But now, I can't even remember what I had for breakfast this morning, let alone what big news story happened this week (something about a mine?).

I'm counting on the fact that it will come back. That after the baby is born, I'll remember things again. It will be like coming out of a fog and seeing the light! Although someone needs to tell me about this thing I've heard about called "mommy brain" ....

I’d be inclined to buy into with you on this. Which is not something I typically do! I really like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!

Hi everyone, - spotted your current web page accidentally while wandering around the web this afternoon, and happy that i did! I like the layout and different shades, but I really should mention that I’m having trouble when it loads. I’m using iCab 4 browser for mac, and the menu bit fails to line up correctly. i’m convinced I’ve made use of exactly the same design on a client’s web site, but the menu seems all straight on mine. I have an idea the fault is with my browser and I’m assuming it is time to switch!
