Baby Brain, Mumnesia
I am having a severe attack of the baby brain this week! I used to have a really good memory and I would easily manage to do more than one thing at one time, especially if one of them is talking! This week I have really noticed a decline in my mental functioning. I can barely finish my sentences and I can't remember words for things. Today its been "give me that thingy, whadyima callit, that thing there that you drink from, it has a handle and it starts with a c!" I have also started telling a story and halfway through I totally forget what I was talking about (I never do that!). I am actually sitting here trying to remember the stupid things I have done today but funnily enough I can't remember!
Oh yes, there was also the embarrassing situation when I asked Steven to bring me through a drink and 5 mins later I said (in a huffy way of course) "I take it you're not getting me a drink then!". I wondered why he was looking at me funny until he pointed out that he did get me a drink and that I had actually drank it already but I had no recollection of it at all! I am due to go back to work in June and I have no idea how I am going to cope if this continues!
Maybe I need more Omega 3 or something!
Apparently it's normal and referred to as mumnesia! Check this out for more info
