Memory Loss?!

I've having a HUGE problem with random memory loss, sometimes short term sometimes childhood memories that I knew I had but sometimes are gone. I went to come to this website to answer some posts and for the life of me could not remember the name of site. I must have typed in the wrong site name a hundred times until FINALLY it hit me! I hope some of you find this as funny as I did =)
Anyone else having this?! I'm 17wks today is this happening as the baby grows or is it just random?!

Re: Memory Loss?!

Crossing-I completly understand what you are talking about!!! I can't remember anything! DH said my memory is completely shot since I became pg. I went to the store the other day and bought soda. I had put it under the cart. Well, I got home and it was not with me. I left it in the cart in the parking lot!! I will sometimes be in mid sentence and forget what I am talking about!! I think the further along I get, the few brain cells I have! Not sure the cause, but I have talked to other moms and they said they experienced the same thing. Guess we will just have to deal with it!!

Re: Memory Loss?!

I've been having the same problem. I was in walmart a few weeks ago, and totally forget what city I was in. I know this sounds crazy,but it really happened! I figured out after a few minutes, but it was really weird.

Re: Memory Loss?!

I am lso experiencing memory loss, I hve been to the shops twice now without my crazy is that, I also forget minor things all the time. My DH thinks it is so funny how I can just forget. I have now got a little book I carry in my handbag (if I remember to take it) where I write everything down just incase I cannot remember which is most of the time....LOL.

Re: Memory Loss?!

My friends say I have 'mumnesia' a variant of amnesia, lol!
I have literally been so busy thinking about baby stuff that I am convinced there is no room to process the other things I am meant to remember. I resort to writing long lists to myself to remind me what I need to do.
I have also been sooo stupidly forgetful that I have forgotten to take my cash from the cash machine - seconds after I asked for it. Not once, but TWICE! I cannot trust my memory - I know this now
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.

Re: Memory Loss?!

I have it too....I've never been one to forget things, really ever.
I have a conference call every Friday morning at 8:30 am...I always do. Well, a couple of weeks ago...I forgot and didn't make the call. It wasn't good. It is sooooo not like me to do that.
Along with everything else I'm forgeting...and it's seems to be a lot lately.

Re: Memory Loss?!

"Pregnancy brain" is what I call it. It's a documented side-effect of pregnacy. Some say it comes from the mommy-to-be being preoccupied with other things (the coming baby, namely -- LOL).

Welcome to the club!
