Well, at least we know I'm not an elephant, I guess

One thing I really didn't expect, or at least to this magnitude, about being pregnant is how incredibly brain-dead I'd become. It's ridiculous! I'd heard of "preg-nesia" and how women supposedly lose half of their brain to each child they have, but for some reason I really didn't think it would happen to me.

Ha! I think I'd literally forget my head if it wasn't screwed on (that's a saying, right? I'm not just pulling it out of my butt like I seem to do lately, right?).

I forget words all the time. It took me two minutes today to think of the word, "proposal", which was the thing I was working on at the time. I write a lot for work which makes this word-forgetting nonsense incredibly annoying since I can't remember the word I'm looking for almost every time I start typing. Also, I can't remember the point of my sentence once I'm halfway through it.

I also keep making up sayings/words, etc. It's amusing Aaron and annoying me all at once. Amusing him because of the complete nonsense that is spewing forth from my lips, and annoying me because he corrects me all the time. I swear that I exasperatedly exclaim, "You knew what I meant! Did you have to correct me?", on a daily basis.

I also forget things at home. Like today, I forgot my gym bag and half my lunch. I've never had so many extremely overdue books from the library as I've had in the past few months (thank goodness they don't charge fines for books). I've also missed about 75% of my holds at the library because I forget to pick them up.

Then there are other symptoms, like that day last week when I went around for a few hours with my pants on backwards. I'm neglectful, forgetful, and annoyed about it all.

I've also heard it doesn't go away once the baby is born. Aaron teases me about forgetting the baby somewhere, at this point I don't think it's nearly as funny as he does.

i think once the baby is born the forgetfulness is from utter fatigue and exhaustion. ;)

At least it makes for blogworthy material, right?

It doesn't go away.
