Pregnancy Brain -n.- preg-nuhn-see breyn
Pregnancy brain is a condition that affects expectant mothers, usually during the first and third trimesters. Sometimes known as placenta brain or baby brain drain, the condition is usually characterized by short-term memory loss or forgetfulness. Some medical experts say that pregnancy brain is a myth, but evidence shows that many women have experienced this condition.
It’s Monday. It’s raining. And I’m pregnant. So, I am going to blame those conditions for the fact that today I drove all the way to the supermarket, did my shopping and then, at the checkout, realized I did not have my wallet. Then I got in my car, drove home, went inside and sat on the couch for about 15 minutes before realizing that I had left my groceries at the store with the cashier with the promise to return with my credit card.
Well, all’s well the end’s well, right?
Except I forgot to get half of the items on my grocery list.
I’m just going to go take a nap.
