Pregnancy Stupids

I used to be an articulate person. I used to be able to spell words and form coherent sentences. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. I find myself unable to express myself...see! I did it again! I was trying to complete a thought and I completely spaced and forgot where I was going.

I have what my dear friend Alana refers to as "the pregnancy stupids." Yes friends, I am no longer intelligent. Not only am I stupid, but I'm clumsy. When I attempt to pour a beverage of any kind I miss the cup by a long shot and all of the liquid involved ends up on the floor. It's quite fascinating, actually, to watch this occur.


Now, this is not to say that I'm the most graceful person in "real life." I am a total klutz and...sorry I just got distracted by the fact that "klutz" is a Yiddish word. I had no idea! It happened again! I can't focus for more than three seconds at a time on a given task.

GRRRR!

Anyway, the point is, I hope one day to have my brain back. If you notice any typos in my posts, now you know why.

Here's the trouble though, I not only have the pregnancy stupids, but I also have "mom brain." This, folks, is a deadly combination.


Is there anyone else out there missing a brain? Please let me know!

  1. I have graduated downwards, instead of pregnancy stupids, I now have "mom brain" lol. But I hear ya...I become a weeble wobble towards the end, always bumping into people, not walking straight, I looked drunk. lol. I too became clumsier (is that even a word? lol).

  7. i think most of my mom brain prob is lack of sleep. i think months/years of sleeping in 3-5 hour bursts (between one kid crying or one kid being hungry or peeing through his diaper or the dog wanting to go out or the dog wanting to come back in or one kid having a nightmare or one kid being hungry...did i say that already?) really does a number on your brain. it can<t be healthy.....

  10. Yeah, I hate to tell you, it totally doesn't go away after you give birth. The more you have, the stupider you become. That's why I decided to stop. My brain can't handle that much stupid.

  11. F$$k! That sucks. I'm not okay with that at all. I guess I need to stop breeding to preserve my brain, or what's left of it.

  12. Oh yeah. I was so dumb when I was preggers. I would walk out of my office at work and just stand in the hall cause I could not remember where I was going or what I was doing. I would drop things, trip over things, and speak backwards. It doesn't stop when you give birth though. I still feel stupid....
