Memory Loss

I 've developed long-term short-term memory loss.

I lose my thoughts seconds in and never seem to get them back. It's very frustrating!

I'm having trouble concentrating, can't type w/ out making mistakes and I've turned into a clutz! I answered the phone yesterday and a few seconds into the convo my cat was getting sick so I put down the receiver, rushed upstairs to check on her and hours later realized I forgot the call! LOL

My husband calls this "pregnesia" I find that not only am I forgetting obvious things but I am mixing up my words constantly. Frustrating but a great laugh for others!

:ROTFL: This is great! I'm glad I'm not alone in the memory loss department. Sometimes my husband will say something to me, and literally within 2 minutes, I'll ask him about something he already told me the answer to minutes ago. Good times!

For me, I'm a teacher, the worst is when I am trying to write something on the board and I completely forget what I am even writing about, and I have to go back and look at my notes. My students look at me like I'm crazy!

JJ's right, the brain shrinks by about 4%. Just enough to be a pain.

BTW, those 2Chix shirts are a bit spendy for a t-shirt, IMO, but they are fantastically comfortable, and you can wear them from the first bit of pooch to full-term tummy. I have the one that says "Oh boy" and the one with the feet that says "What's kickin'?" I still wear them around the house because they're so comfy.

Your brain shrinks when you are pregnant and then goes back to its normal size after you have the baby, but expect to have these types of moments a lot for even some time after you have the baby. And Congrats - i did not know!!!!

Love the shirt Moto! Marci - it's new. I'm pretty sure it's because I'm pregnant. I've heard it happens to a few women an my doctor knows.

Is this something new with you? If not, then you might try those Self-Help books on tricks to boost your memory. But if this IS something new, you should see a doctor.
