indicators of my baby brain

brainimage via 

  • struggling to write a blog post that uses sentences
  • standing in the grocery aisle without any clue what I need/want to buy
  • poor driving… finding myself doing lots of “sorry” waves after lane changes, multiple attempts at parking the car, bumping the car into a gate at Brown Owls yesterday (how embarrassing), wondering what colour the traffic light was after driving through an intersection
  • walking around oblivious to my leaking breasts
  • forgetting what I’m trying to say mid-sentence
  • unravelling crochet over and over and over again for the same mistake
  • wearing my clothes on inside out
  • taking more than an hour to write this post

  6. If it makes you feel any better, a friend opened her front door, collected and signed for a package, noted wierd look on postal man's face, shut door, returned to couch and then realised she still had one breast hanging out of her maternity bra. Mmmm Baby brain. I salute you.

  10. Not embarrassing! My brain is a bit airy at the moment too and I have no new baby. You're doing just fine (and at least you haven't opened the door with your boob hanging out like Loz's friend, maybe start to worry when that happens!!)

  11. Well the rule of thumb is that you get over it eventually unless you are an older mummy like me and you go from baby brain straight into menopausal brain...... go with the flow and who cares what anyone thinks. (hubby just rolls his eyes at me now an even the kids are starting to make comments! LOL)

  12. Oh no I remember that feeling very well. I hope you get a chance to get a bit more sleep and rest, that can help sometimes. xo

  13. I haven't had my baby yet and I already have baby brain (I ended up ordering two lots of groceries online for delivery on the same day - one in the morning and the other in the afternoon!).

    And inside out clothes are cool - seams on the outside is so very now!!

  14. Sounds completely normal to me. Wait until you answer the phone & forget your own name, i've done that, thank goodness is was my husband calling but he did say "do your children know you are answering the phone unsupervised" as clearly they have it together better than me. Love Posie

  15. Hmm, my youngest is 4 and there is no sign of my razor-sharp mental capacity returning any time soon.
    (Sorry)

  16. I had the 'was that light red or green?' thought yesterday! And at 11 months out I don't know that I can blame it on the baby brain.
