I HATE Pregnancy Brain...

Prior to ever being pregnant, I was able to multitask with the BEST of them. Prior to being pregnant, I could make a to-do list, AND complete it. Prior to being pregnant, I could go on vacation - and remember to pack everything back INTO my bags.....

Since I had Noah, I CANNOT, let me repeat, CAN NOT remember anything, hear anything, complete a task AND, I can't remember the last time I went somewhere and packed everything back into my bags.

I thought pregnancy brain was supposed to go away when you weren't pregnant any more...

Just this morning, I was cooking dinner for a friend. I was putting noodles on the stove to cook, and guess what I did?? DIDN'T ADD WATER TO THE POT?? Really?? I literally put noodles on the stove to cook....After I smelled something burning, I went into the kitchen to find a pot of steaming uncooked noodles.

Lord, please either give me my abilities back....OR, just keep an extra eye on me. I don't care which.

On a different note - how many thought by the title of the post that it was going to say I was expecting #2?? NO WAY JOSE! This momma can't function with one, much less two. :)


  1. I think my heart skipped a beat when I read this blog title! My first thought: "OH NO SHE DIDN'T! That biotch did not just announce her pregnancy on the blog without telling us first!!"

    Whew. For the record, I was outraged, but happy-outraged. :)

    This is my list of fun/not-so-fun side effects of pregnancy/mommyhood:

    1. New love/love relationship with jalapenos (leftover preggo craving)
    2. Expensive, teeth-staining addiction to Starbucks (leftover preggo craving)
    3. Inability to sleep through the night...I am now the lightest sleeper ever. Kylie hasn't made a peep in her sleep for MONTHS...but I still wake up 2 or 3 times every single night FOR NO REASON AT ALL
    4. Pregnancy brain/tunnel vision...not only am I half out of it these days (i.e. no water in the spaghetti pot), my head is so packed with toddler stuff I feel like I'm out of the loop on most of the stuff everyone else is talking about, i.e. news, politics, gossip, trends...

    There's a lot more on the list but my pregnancy brain can't remember the others right now.

  2. I thought it...which is crazy since you would NEVER let me find out that way. Unless of course you thought I was not reading the blog.
