Some say that pregnant women are affected by what’s known as pregnancy brain, a condition characterized by short-term memory loss and forgetfulness.
I doubt I can blame all my idiosyncrasies on the pregnancy, but I have had a few moments of temporary absentmindedness this past week that are quite uncharacteristic of me.
Last week, while showering, I began putting conditioner in my hair. As I rinsed the conditioner out, I suddenly realized that I had completely forgotten to put shampoo in my hair. I actually did this exact same thing a few days later.
This morning, something similar happened. I woke up, and began fixing myself some breakfast. I got out cereal, milk, a boiled egg and orange juice. Cereal was poured into the bowl, followed by the milk. While I poured, it slowly dawned on me that I was not, in fact, pouring the milk. Nope…I had just poured a massive amount of orange juice onto my cereal.
Pregnancy brain or not, I may need to take a nap before I injure myself.
