Am I the only one with this? My memory has been so poor since having my son eight months ago? I forget, names, conversations, why I went into a room.... the list goes on. Is this normal?

Good old baby brain! I've been in a permanent befuddled state since about month 2 of current pregnancy and I was the same with my first pregnancy.

My daughter is 11 months now and I am the same. I keep wondering how on earth I'm going to be competent enough to go back to work.

I recently forgot the word 'armchair' and was trying to tell my husband I'd left something on it. I ended up saying 'it's on the thing that's the same as the sofa but smaller'

It's tiredness. You get used to feeling tired and sleeping less so you don't realise it is there. And then you remember how well you used to function as an adult.

I hear it gets better after you go back to work. After a few weeks of feeling stupid first!

I have this. My DS is 5 months. I will often put something down and lose it, only to look back and it's staring me in the face.

Earlier today I was clearing out the cupboard and I took out some old medicine that had initials on it. For a good few minutes I was confused as to who it belonged to. Then I realised it was my DS blush
