Pregnancy Brain Is Real

A lot of people doubt pregnancy brain. I think a small part of me doubted it as well. Until I got pregnant of course. 
I've always had trouble with my memory and getting my words out correctly, and I thought that not being in work and having to communicate with lots of people every day made that worse, but it just turns out I was pregnant and didn't know it. It wasn't until I was six months gone that I realised that's why it had gotten worse in October/November last year. 

So, here's some examples of my personal pregnancy brain:
  1. Every time I had to have a scan or my bloods taken; they asked me when my birthday was. I don't think there was a single time I was able to answer straight away. One time I definitely said 'I have no idea anymore.' 
  2. I regularly got my words mixed up and couldn't get back on track, so I almost always ended up telling myself to shut up or fuck off, and wouldn't attempt to repeat myself.
  3. I had a bottle of (non-alcoholic) Koppaberg in my hand once and had opened the drawer to find the bottle opener. Within seconds I had forgotten what I was doing and Mum asked me what I needed. 'I have no idea.' She spotted the bottle in my hand and got the opener for me. 
  4. I opened the cutlery drawer instead of the cupboard when I wanted a glass for my juice. 
  5. I couldn't find something I needed for ages because I forgot that I had even gone into the kitchen before going up to my room, let alone that I had taken it with me, and I had apparently left it in there. Yes, I did cry. A lot.
