I swear for the past couple of weeks I been forgetting stuff , loosing my keys, and just general ditzy stuff. Well, tonight I went grocery shopping with Dh & Ds, and we did our big every 2 weeks stock up on stuff trip. We had already checked out (had a cart over flowing w/ groceries) when I realized I had forgotten my wallet at home (with all the money in it). So the 2 hour shopping trip was a bust and I didn't know if I needed to laugh or cry I ended up doing both !!

I have it sooo bad. I can't even drive because my reflexes are way too slow "Green light means....uh...oh yeah, drive."

I am ditzy in general and a nightmare when pregnant.

Luckilyl everyone around me is patient and indulging with me, so I have a built-in crew of "momma-hens" reminding me to remember my keys, write that down, take my lunch, return this message etc etc.

I exasperate myself sometimes, so I think my husband must be a saint for living with me all this time

Yes. I am a very bad driver when pg, it's not even funny.
Since becoming pg, I've been almost getting into accidents.
One time, I ran a red light from a stop position. I saw the car in my periphery go and whaddya know, I went too. It was a green arrow on both sides (I was going straight). The lady who almost crashed into my car was livid. All I could do was mouth a very, very sincere and horrified "sorry".
I try to not get out of the house. Not until this has passed.

I had that when I was pregnant with DS two years ago and I'm not sure it ever entirely left me!
