Elephants Might Not Forget, But Pregnant Women Do

So if you think you’re flakier than usual while you’re pregnant, it may just be your perception.” – from an article on BabyCenter.com

I suppose I might be able to get a decent score on the ACT (MIGHT); but I don’t know how else to define paying at the drive-thru window then driving away without stopping to pick up the food, other than “flakier than usual.”   Or how about the 10 times a day that I walk into a room for a purpose, then spin around wondering why I just huffed and puffed up the stairs.  I find kitchen utensils in the bathroom (that one may be the kids) and open diet coke cans in closets.  Research might not be able to explain why I can’t remember what I was going to write about today, but I’ll claim pregnancy brain anyway 🙂

  1. Danielle, I have twice driven away at McDonald’s after paying for my coffee. I wouldn’t go back because I was too embarrassed. That is an awful feeling. Might just be an Evans trait and not pregnancy at all!!! Love you, Aunt Claudia
