Anyone who has had a baby or been around a pregnant woman can say that pregnancy brain is all too real. Brandon didn’t believe it was a real thing before I was pregnant, and now he wonders if pregnancy brain is ever going to go away! Unfortunately I’m pretty sure pregnancy brain just turns into mommy brain. Here are some hilarious pregnancy brain moments from some ladies over at the October 2014 birth board on BabyCenter:
“I have many but the two most memorable are…
I always brush my teeth when I’m in the shower so after putting toothpaste on my toothbrush I jumped in the shower and began brushing. I was thinkin while I was brushing how the toothpaste must have gone bad. I quickly spit it out and washed my mouth out. When I got out of the shower I discovered that I had just brushed my teeth with cortisone.
Another time I was on my way to work and stopped at the light right next to publix and told myself I needed to run in and grab some stamps so I could mail out a card. I got into publix less than a minute later and thought I should get something for breakfast. I also grabbed some granola bars for snacks. I then checked out and arrived at work only realize I forgot to get the stamps which was my reason for stopping I the first place.”
“I paid our student loan bill on a Friday… And again the next Monday. Royally messed up our budget.
I also went to get a cup of water from the refrigerator and didn’t realize until my feet were in a puddle of water that my coffee cup was upside down.”
“I would always put random things in the refrigerator.”
“I thought my key to the house was broken. It’s been known to stick so I wasn’t really surprised. I kept turning it and jiggling the knob but it wouldn’t budge. So I went and camped out at MIL’s (mother in law) house until DH (dear husband) got home. He tried my key and it worked fine.
So the next day, I open the door and lock it (without closing it) and try to unlock it with my key. Once again, I kept jiggling and turning but it still wouldn’t budge. It finally hit me that I was turning the key in the wrong direction. Lol.
In my defense, I had some serious sleep deprivation while I was pregnant. I got more sleep when she was finally out.”
“Out at dinner one night my bf (boyfriend) asked me if I could hand him a roll, I said sure and reached for one.. In the middle of giving him the role I completely forgot that I was supposed to be grabbing it for him and just went ahead and ate it myself! Him and my mom were laughing at me.. Whoops!”
“There were a couple occasions where I’d come home from work, and I’d stand at my front door wondering why it’s not opening. Then I look down at my keys and realize I’m pushing the unlock button on my car remote..and I was actually pointing it at my door, and I did this like more than once. Kinda scary..”
“My friend said she thought she had a fever and asked if she felt hot. I leaned in and got quite far into the forehead kiss check before realizing what I was doing and stopping with a dumb look on my face and my eyes locked on hers. I made it more awkward by trying to explain. She enjoyed torturing me. I’m not a touchy person at all, it was just instinct.”
“I took dd (dear daughter) school shopping and didn’t realize that I was still wearing my house slippers till we got there… Yay new shoes for mom too.. Lol
I literally forgot my name. I was at a party with a friend and I was introducing myself to her friends and said “hi I’m ???” I couldn’t for the life of me remember she cracked up and said my name… pregnancy brain is no joke lmao”
“I don’t know my age. I have to subtract my birth year from current year to figure it out”
“I cooked a pizza with cardboard still underneath (frozen pizza)”
“I had a cooking fail once too, I was cooking some soup for an hour apparently, but the stove was off…”
