Seriously SUCKS. I used to have an incredible memory. Then I got pregnant and its never gone away but instead each pregnancy it gets worse and worse. My husband can tell me something, I answer, and I have forgotten what he said that I have to ask what I just answered to. I am constantly going upstairs or in another room for something and have no clue what. The other day I left a brand new milk on the counter and went to bed.

The reason I am so annoyed about this is that I am usually really good at Christmas, but I can't seem to remember a single things i intended to get hubby for Christmas. I just had to ask him again because I couldn't even remember his big main gift. It already wasn't going to be a surprise, but I feel so lame about it all.

I just want a functioning brain back.

Last doctors visit I asked her to confirm that this was a real thing...


Then I promptly asked her to write me a note to work to prove it to my supervisor who believes I'm making it up.... the doctor would not.

I've read that in a way it is and in a way it isn't a real thing. There's apparently nothing special about pregnancy that makes you forget things and pregnant women have the ability to remember the same number of things as anyone else.

BUT, (<--that's a big but, teehee) a pregnant woman usually has a lot more on her mind than usual. When the top several tiers of her mind are now occupied with the new baby growing in her belly, of course the bottom several things are going to be bumped off.

Add to that effect stress, insomnia, and growing physical discomfort, it's no wonder we can't remember where we put the keys...when they're still in our hands.

omg asking your dr to write a note is hilarious. My mind isn't overtaken with baby stuff though. I still have days I forget I am pregnant. Pregnancy brain maybe? lol

Its ok though, when baby is here I will start taking ginko again in hopes to help. The exhaustion really makes me foggy and forgetful.

My hubby has an incredible memory when it comes to work and school, but he can't remember things I tell him for anything

My memory is usually not good. It's getting kind of ridiculous now though. I have to make lists, and even then sometimes I forget my lists. I feel like My DH has been having some sort of sympathy pregnancy brain too though. He is often forgetting things, and I've found the stove burners left on from when he made his supper when I get home at 11:30 at night. He's usually got a good memory lol.
