I'd say from really early on I've had some form of baby brain. Mainly just being forgetful when it comes to where I've left things however it could be down to tiredness and lack of concentration on anything other than me being pregnant.
I'm now 18 weeks and I've noticed as of late I just can't spell properly. Of course I'll be double checking this before posting but when messaging friends for example I've been saying 'good look' rather than luck, and 'right' instead of 'write'. That sort of thing. It never usually happens and I'm wondering if this is baby brain and it will pass..
I've also noticed I've been writing things backwards, so in my head if I was thinking "I'm going to take the dogs to the park" I'll write (on a text message) "I'm going to dogs the take to the park"
It's probably my mind on overtime at the minute but did anyone else have this form of 'baby brain' or anything similar?
I must mention I've been quite dozy about everything lately. I went to the hospital and had an internal examination and when the doctor left the room so I could put my clothes back on I COMPLETELY forgot to put my pants on and just put my shoes on. It was only when I felt the breeze on my backside I realised I'd completely ignored my underwear and pants lying on the floor. Luckily I noticed before the doctor came back in.
It may just be over tiredness. Your body's working hard just now, I'm 24 weeks and haven't slept very well all through so far, and I am normally fatigued a lot anyway so have been experiencing a lot of the things you've said!
It could be hormonal changes. I have noticed that my boss - who is going through the menopause but otherwise healthy as far as I know - doing similarly odd things with words/language. She has also become totally incapable of following directions/maps/instructions. I am about 10 years younger - so not looking forward to menopause...
Thanks everyone! I genuinely thought I'd developed dyslexia or something. It probably is down to not having enough sleep and hormonal changes.. My mum is going through menopause and she's a little bit forgetful, although with things that are really easy to forget but because it's my mum, who is VERY organise and forgets nothing, we all pick up on it!
I think that's completely normal - I put my passport in my freezer - god knows why lol it will pass in time. As others have said your body is working double time and your brain is racing to catch up with it x
