  • i was SO forgetful in my pregnancy, felt like i had cotton woll for brains! i was constantly going into rooms and completely forgetting why! lol. i had 2 write myself so many reminders. it definately does stop when baby comes though i promise!
  • oh good im glad it stops when baby is here!!! feel like an idiot today!!!
    i told o/h and he just said "thats normal for u pg or not" cheers babe!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Sorry ladies, I am even worse now the baby is here.. beginning sentences I lose track of halfway through, putting handwash on my toothbrush instead of toothpaste and last week emptied a sachet of ready brek in to the bin and put the sachet in the bowl.....
  • Hi! Yes, I'm the same. I couldn't even remember how old I was at one appointment!!! I've found it quite hard as I was really well organised before. Luckily oh is organised enough for both of us and keeps everything on track!!!

  • My brain has turned to mush! Half the time wot i say jst comes out as babble. My oh has noticed and keeps pointin out how my mind has gone, which is nice of him! (only in a jokey way tho). Not good havin mush for brains when am tryin to finish an essay for tomorrow! Nice to no i'm not the only 1 tho, thought i was goin a bit crazy!
  • I have major problems remembering what I have gone into the supermarket for. I can even go upto three different times before I get what it is I need. washing powder was the last one!
  • lol same probles here, although one of my bigger problems is the fact that I say such stange things, as soon as they are out of my mouth I think what am I talking about? I am terrible at substituting words and making the whole sentence mean something else - its giving my husband a giggle so it can't be all that bad - anyone else having this problem - I am 27 Weeks preggers!
  • this post really made me laugh! the other day my husband asked what i wanted in my sandwich and i replied with 'Christmas'! WHAT, i sat and cried the other day because i jst couldn't remember anything and the harder i tried to remember where i'd put things to more i forgot!
  • My hubby came home last night and told me that the tomato soup i made him for his lunch was lovely and i apparently replied 'oh, thanks'.

    A while later, i asked him if he thought the soup was okay and he looked at me like i an alien and said 'i just said that to you not that long ago and you even replied'. I can honestly say i dont remember him saying anything about soup but we apparently had a conversation about it!! I get my sentences muddled too and put words the wrong way round and then i dont make much sense.

    Havent yet had any experience of putting things like kettles in fridges etc (YET). But i am very clumsy and keep dropping things. Last night getting ready to go out for tea, i kept dropping my hair brush, make up brushes and i got so sick of bending over to pick things up. I must drop my car keys 10 times a day too. I then proceeded to nearly fall down the stairs as my heel got caught on the top step of the stair but managed to grab the handrail in time (then got a rollicking for wearing heels which i dont normally!!)

    I am not safe let out on my own!!!
  • OMG So glad other people lose track half way through a sentence, I am ruddy useless at the mo'.

    Also started saying the wrong words in sentences and when people say what? you said x I dont even realise I did.

    I also gave my son my hubby's lunch consisting of 3 cobs, banana, apple, 2 satsumas and a bag of macoys and my poor 10 year old came home and said I couldnt finish my lunch Mum, to which I said you shouldnt waste food Rhys. then all became clear when hubby came home starving and said he only had 1 cob, apple, banana and Wotsits (which he hates along with cheese spread in the cob which he hates) OPPS, I am rubbish!

    Only 26 weeks left, then I will be a tearful mess instead!
  • last pregnancy was spent putting fabric conditioner in my t instead of milk this time its forgetting my name or the kids names etc
    if i continue calling my 11 yr old son carrie he may move out! lol xxx
  • Absolutely!
    I joke that I have just got mush for brain! xx

  • Tell me about it!!! I went to do breakfast yesturday and completely forgot the I had run out of Bread, milk, cereal and yogurts, luckily DH went to the shop quickly before he left for work.

    This morning I went to make his sandwiches for work and had forgotten to get more pickle.

    At lunch time I knew I had planned something to eat, but couldn't remember what so wondered around the kitchen for a while, feeling too sick/hungry to think of anthing else, so I ended up going to the shop (which is at the end of the road) and picking up something else!!

    The worst thing I have forgotten was that my Nan went to Australia for 2 months yesturday and I for got to call her, so feel really bad about that one. I have asked DH to keep remnding me of things, I'm thinking of getting post-it's, just to survive the next 6 and a half months!!

    p.s can't remember spellings either, so sorry for the bad spelling
  • Honestly i thought it was me, i was really worried the other day i lost my purse and searched everywhere then when my son whos 4 came home he told me i was silly as i put it in the fridge i mean come on how stupid am i. My exams at uni were the worst i tried revising and nothing stuck i just hope i have passed lol. After my son it took me a year to get back to normal so hopefully it will be the same xxx take care xx tracey
  • I was terrible when I was pregnant I remember trying to fill the washing machine with fairy liquid and thankfuly I noticed just in time. Nearly flooded my kitchen a few times, always forgot what I was doing like freezing crisps and tatties and putting cloths in the fridge ect I did loads of silly things lol can't say it gets much better though!
  • I said in my post earlier that i was getting clumsier - well the last few hours have proved that!!

    So far today, i nearly tripped over going through the door into work this morning (with my boss right behind me!); then i dropped a load of rent review notices which i had neatly arranged ready to photocopy so they got all muddled up and then i dropped a file on the floor and all the contents went flying across the office!

    Good god - my employer will be desperate for me to leave well before 29th March (when i am due to finish for M Leave) if i keep this up! :roll:
