pregnancy is eating my brain?

yesterday i was trying to get my daughter ready to go pick up my husband and i forgot to put her socks and shoes on! then while i was driving i forgot where i was going and started to drive to my moms house instead of going to get my husband! I just keep forgetting EVERYthing!! did this happen to you when you were pregnant and is this normal? should i go see a doctor about 1/2 my brain missing?

  • I don't mean to laugh but LOL, That is exactly how I was. It has just gotten worse since I have had my kids. They drive me so crazy sometimes that I sometimes forget what I have dusted and what I haven't and I don't have that much furniture in my living room to dust. It's just gonna get worse.

  • The sad part is, the brain loss doesn't go away until your kids are much older...

  • I don't think it's the pregnancy. I think you are rushed and not taking time to think clearly. Slow down

  • I think it's normal, I know for a fact I got dummer when i got pregnant and the baby is sucking the life out of me! Even my husband notices how forgetful I have been, I am usually on top of everything, now organizing things overwhelmes me...it's tiredness I am sure!

  • im the EXACT same way. i have forgotten important doctors visits and other places i was suppsed to be which i could really get into trouble for but i cant help it...i didnt understand how i could just FORGET something so important! but i read it in what to expect when youre expecting that absentmindedness can be common in pregnancy and my boyfriend knows that im...absentminded now i suppose haha and it helps that he just jokes around with me about how im losing my mind and hes gotta help me find it in september when the baby is born lol
