Baby Brain

Apparently “they” say that baby brain doesn’t exist. I’m not sure who “they” are, but “they” say a lot of things.

Over the last few days though, I’ve become convincd that baby brain does not only exist, but it is also afflicting me.

Just making cups of tea alone, I’ve attempted to use fabric conditioner instead of milk, and I’ve attempted to make it – as in poured in water and milk – without a tea bag. I’ve also put a dirty dinner plate back in the cupboard instead of the dishwasher, and put Ian’s socks on instead of my own. I’ve completely lost count of the number of times I’ve gone upstairs to do something, and by the time I get there I’ve completely forgotten what it was I wanted.

Maybe it is because I’m so preoccupied with thinking about baby, rather than actual physiological process affecting my brain. But I do hope this stupidity passes after the baby is born!
