This shows how bad my pregnancy brain is.. we have an auditor here this week.. so my coworker had told me last Friday what I needed to pull out for him. I needed to get some receipts out for our year end. I got them out, gave them to her and totally forgot. He requested them yesterday and we looked and looked and could NOT find them! This morning we looked again and nothing.. well even the coworker I gave them to had forgotten, she helped look, then later on she said "Are these the ones that you are looking for?" I told her "YES, THEY ARE!!" Oh geez.. I normally have the best memory and everyone knows I remember everything. I want my regular brain back LOL I read somewhere that in the third trimester brain cells decrease but go back to normal a few months after delivery lol

ROFL I really hope you're right in the "they come back in a couple months" department. :biglaugh:

I'm CONSTANTLY forgetting to get things.. my sticky note section of my desk is ridiculious. It's the only way I can remember to do things. lol..

I forget everything!!! I don't believe you ever get your brain back and the more kids you have the more you seem to forget. I just have to put everything on my calander and try to remember to look at it everyday. Sometimes I forget! haha

Mine has to be about the worst it has ever been. I agree it never fully comes back, hahaha. I will forget what I'm doing at work right in the middle of a task and just stop and stare at whatever I'm doing for a minute until I remember, hahaah.

ROFL OMG this is me EVERY morning!! I start making my lunch.. go into the pantry to get my crystal light packets for the day and while I'm in there, I'm staring and staring and staring, forgetting why I went in there!! Then I walk back out and see my lunch still sitting on the counter next to my bag and go RIGHT back into the pantry to get what originally I went in for. :biglaugh:

The sad thing? It's the SAME DANG THING every morning!!! I should put a sticky note on the drink shelf that says "YOU CAME IN FOR THESE!"

Lol

Hahahaa, love this question. Mine's pretty terrible. I feel so bad for my office peeps and DH. Today I went to a site meeting to meet a rep to have him look at something. The site is over an hour away from where we both work and I get there and realize I forgot the keys. The area we needed access to has a 6 ft tall chain link fence around it and so he decided to jump it. I felt so bad, he's kind of a fancy man too. He had really nice clothes and shoes on. So embarrassing.

I've put my keys in the fridge, I've lost my drivers license, I keep getting my appointment times wrong. AND I write everything down in my calender. I swear my calendar lies to me about my appointment times.
