Pregnancy Induced Brain Fog ... Brain Cloud
So, why the complaints? I just made two huge forgetful-related mistakes recently and I'd like to chalk it up to this pregnant brain fog / cloud of mine.
Did you ever see the movie Joe Versus The Volcano? Not a classic Tom Hanks movie by any means but some scenes crack me up. In one scene (embedded in this post) he is diagnosed with a bogus claim of Brain Cloud. If only he was pregnant ... then it wouldn't have been bogus. hahahahaa
Of course there's also Ellen DeGeneres' skit on Forgetfulness. Story of my life these days. As for Rick Perry's hilarious blunder ... well, it's worth including because his "oops" moment is too good to pass up.
Maybe I should sleep more?
Oh, no, that's right ... I wake up all the time to pee because I'm pregnant. LOL
More post-it notes maybe will help. LOL I'm hoping. Only a couple more months left of pregger belly and then I'll be onto newborn exhaustion. =)
That being said, I cannot wait to meet my little girl. I love the name we picked out and I can't wait to meet the little person whose name it will be.
** Below the short videos is information from What to Expect about "Pregnancy Brain" -- maybe this will help me legitimize the mistakes and forgetfulness lately ...
Here's some info about Pregnancy Brain according to What To Expect
Pregnancy-induced brain fog is a true (and truly frustrating) hallmark of pregnancy. If you suffer from so-called “pregnancy brain,” you may forget appointments, what you just walked into the store for, where you left your purse, whether you turned off the stove — and, maybe, your phone number. A fun fact: for reasons unknown, some research has shown that women pregnant with girls are, on average, more forgetful than those carrying boys.
