The Curse of the Pregnancy Brain // Happy Friday

Have you ever had one of those days where it would have been better that you sat in the corner with your hands in your lap?

I had one of those days yesterday.

All in all I guess you could call the day a success just because Addison is still alive and walking and healthy. Connor is still kicking me like crazy. The cat hasn't starved to death. And my husband isn't divorcing me.

It wasn't as if things went all that bad, but they definitely didn't go all that great. I felt stupid all day. I did weird things and couldn't figure out other simple things. Rob told me to give myself a break because I had a pretty good excuse.

I would list all the crazy, simple, stupid things I did but heck I can't remember half of them because of pregnancy brain. I kid you not. I don't remember being this scattered when I was pregnant with Addison but then again I didn't also have a three-year-old and I slept better when I was pregnant with her.

I definitely think I'm getting more scattered every day.

I wish I could remember all my pregnancy brain moments but that would require remembering so that's not happening. I do remember some of my bigger moments which are a heck of a lot funnier now that the moment has come and gone. If you were to ask me when it was happening, I probably wouldn't have said the same thing.

Some of my favorites include:

+Explaining Rob's opinion back to him. He made a statement then I took a couple minutes to try to argue his own point back to him before finally saying: "Well you know. You said it first."

+Getting time and money confused. We were watching Fixer Upper and a family's budget was $359,000 and I couldn't figure out why they wouldn't just go up to $400,000. Then I realized that that was not the next number like time. The next number was actually $360,000. At least I figured it out myself - that always makes me feel less stupid.

+Losing my ring around the house several times. Once in the ring holder and panicking so much I was ready to call a plumber to check the toilet. And a second time because I was looking for a Gobstopper that I lost on the bed and didn't even realize I had lost my ring until my ring flew across the bed. [Honestly I'm surprised Rob hasn't taken my ring away yet!]

+I struggled with getting my food processor to work for a good ten minutes before I surrendered and sat on the floor. I knew it was a simple solution and sure enough it was which Rob fixed for me when he got one. We got the thing to work then saved the sauce I was making and ordered a pizza.

There have been many many more but those are some of our favorites around here. This pregnancy has been a little hard on me, especially on my brain. Luckily we are almost in the final month and therefore in the final countdown. I'm not only ready for this little boy to be here so I can meet him but also so I'm not pregnant anymore and I can maybe get back a few of my brain cells. Or maybe not...

Have a great weekend!
