My husband looked worried as he said “Don’t ever tell anyone you did that.” So, what else would I do with one of my most recent pregnancy brain moments? Yep, I told everyone.
I punched my mom’s phone number into my cellphone. I waited, and waited, and waited. Why is this not dialing? Looking down to re-press the call button I thought, Oh, that’s weird. Why are there commas?
Ding! A sudden epiphany. I was trying to call my mom using the calculator app.
From forgetting words and spellings to more serious things — like forgetting meetings and deadlines — this pregnancy brain is hilariously entertaining, but it is actually starting to scare me a little too.
Now, I consider days I am able to get my kids to the proper school on time and fully clothed a win. And, days I can fully dress myself too, bonus!
At a recent work trip, this happened. Since I was in a hotel room alone and semi-rested, I can’t even blame it on being distracted by my boys.
Don’t worry — I know for a fact I was wearing huge granny panties under that super-long tank.
For some reason, the only thing that has made me feel a tiny bit better about my big-fat-pregnancy-brain flubs is realizing it is normal thanks to other moms sharing their hilarious stories. And, for some reason, pregnancy-brain stories are so much better when they are happening to someone else.
Here are my all-time favorite pregnancy brain moments shared by other moms. I know you will love them!
Tell me your most hilarious pregnancy brain moment, or story you have heard!
