PREGNANCY BRAIN IS A THING

Before I go deeper into this whole pregnancy brain situation, I have a need to say that I've always considered myself as you know, a smart person. Or you know, I've never felt this stupid in my whole life. My problem-solving game has always been on top but nowadays I feel like my brain is completely off. I've been good at concentrating, I've understood what people have said to me and I've understood what I've read. Before I got in my third trimester, I thought that pregnancy brain is not a thing. Or well, at least with me. But I was so wrong. I was as wrong as a person can be. 


PREGNANCY BRAIN IS A THING

There have been a quite a few times when my brain has completely mindfucked me over and I've never felt this stupid in my life before. I mean, I'd rather take a weird food obsession (which doesn't seem to be a thing with me) than this incredibly stupid thinking process that goes through my head every day.


I HAD NO CLUE WHY WE PEELED POTATOES FOR THE MINCED MEAT SOUP

We were talking about peeling potatoes. Then I said that "oh, we haven't peeled any potatoes in this new apartment" and J quickly responded, "we had minced meat soup yesterday." I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that you actually peel the potatoes before you add them to the soup and I continued arguing against him. "Yeah, we had, but why would've we peeled potatoes for that?" When I finally understood, we had a such a good laugh and after that - everything has gotten to worse.

ONCE J TALKED TO ME FOR 15 MINUTES AND I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND A THING

I can look like I'm listening and registering everything that's said to me. Then again, I probably don't. I've got no clue why I'm having such a hard time concentrating on something that someone tells me. Usually, I can do two or three things at the same time, but nowadays - I can't do anything if someone has something to say to me. If I'm watching TV or writing, it might take a while before I notice that someone is talking to me.

WRITING SOMETHING INCREDIBLY WEIRD ON OTHER BLOGS

I don't think I should comment on blogs when I'm in this state of mind. Yesterday, I found myself from a super embarrassing moment when I was commenting on a blog post. I had this blurry image that I've seen this post somewhere before, then I checked the comments if I had commented anything on it because I was supposed to. Yeah, well - the first comment was something we laughed out loud together with J wondering that had this person even read the post before commenting. Then I commented on the post, scrolled back to the top and realised that it was my freaking comment that made us laugh. I was literally thinking "who's that idiot?" and then realised that it was me. I was the idiot. This has probably been the worst situation my brain has gotten me into. I was so ashamed and laughing at myself at the same time. Now I just keep wondering that the blogger who's blog I've commented on must think I'm an absolute idiot and how many other blogs I've commented on and totally blacked out whilst writing the comment.


So yeah, pregnancy brain sure is a thing. It's THE THING. And I can't wait for this to be over, I want my old brain back as soon as possible. Thank you.

Has anything like this ever happened to you before? Being pregnant or not?

  4. I've never been pregnant but I see this in family who are pregnant and with babies too. It must be frustrating even if it is slightly funny <3

  10. It definitely is a thing. I was the worst when I was pregnant. My friends tell me heaps of funny stories and It must have been bad because I don't remember half of the things actually happening. Aahh, I had the worst memory. Not too long to go now. You must be excited (and nervous and terrified, and all those other emotions. Unless it was only me that found impending motherhood terrifying?). Don't worry about all the scary stories you've heard - you will get to sleep, even if it's just for a little bit. Motherhood is very rewarding.

    1. I'm not really that nervous now when I'm thinking about it. I just can't wait to get this baby out of me :D the actual labor and surviving with a baby doesn't scare me at all, I'm more excited than terrified haha :D Kind of weird, when knowing that this is the first time this all is happening to me.

  11. My sister in law suffered really badly with pregnancy brain. Sometimes it was like talking to a drunk person, she was repeating herself and talking gibberish! It would freak me out! But I suppose your brain is also having to deal with keeping you and baby healthy so something's got to give...

  12. I absolutely didn't know pregnancy brain was a thing! I mean, I heard stuff like your teeth change, not like from diabetes, but change. Anyways, I really enjoyed reading since I hope I'd be a mother one day!

    1. Yeah I've heard that pregnancy changes your teeth in a way (I'm not sure though how) and my nurse recommended to book an appointment to dentist pretty early during the pregnancy. Haha, I'm glad that you enjoyed the post!

  16. I have forgotten how to spell things and the name for some objects! Like 'bib'. I was thinking 'baby neck tie' for such a long time. Also 'food catcher' and 'thing with hole in it that goes around baby's neck'. I literally had to google it to find out the word. It took an embarrassingly long time.

  19. It's the first time that i've heard about a pregnancy brain. I haven't heard that my Mom ever spoke about that and i've sen my sister when she was pregnant and she was normal self - so i don't know if everyone have that! It's won't be forever before you know it you will have you brain back.

    1. I don't think everyone will have that & I though I could've avoid it but nah :D

  20. Oh it's definitely a thing, and then it continues on into Mummy brain as well! I've never felt so scattered and disorganised as I did with little babies. But on the other hand, you have a million things to remember and do, it's no surprise your brain prioritises the survival things and let's everything else wash by for a while!

  21. I'm starting to feel it now. I can't remember anything anymore... and have to write everything down or I'll forget. Or double book myself. It's pretty terrible.
    Can't wait to have my brain back!
