I've heard about pregnancy brain, but really hadn't had any experience with it. I was starting to think that maybe I would get through the whole pregnancy without getting forgetful.
I mean, I had my moments of walking into a room and forgetting why I had gone there. But it wasn't really anything crazy.
Then this morning, I scurry out the door to head to the office. I was running a little behind, so I needed to get going. I put my phone in my coat pocket. I even remembered to grab my bluetooth (stupid Oregon hands-free law). I picked up my lunch, said good bye to Phil and the dogs and got in the car.
I got to work, just a few minutes late when I realized that I forgot to finish putting my make-up on. I had managed to put on my eye make-up, but totally forget foundation, powder, etc. Not sure how that happened, since I have a pretty well developed routine. Whatever, I thought to myself. I'll just put on some of the powder I have in my purse.
I walked to my desk and reached for my purse to put my keys away when I realized... I didn't have my purse. And it wasn't that I forgot it in the car. I forgot it at home. How the heck did I walk off and forget my purse?
I guess I officially had a pregnancy brain morning. At least I remembered the REALLY important things like putting on pants.
If it makes you feel any better, I am spending the day designing buildings. No big deal. Don't worry... I always check things like three times.
