What was I going to write about again?

Pregnancy brain is totally a real thing. Case and point: completely forgot about breakfast date with friends J and T this morning. Completely forgot. Even though we talked about it at least three times this past week. And I was really, really excited for a frittata.

Then today I got this little tidbit from my weekly What To Expect e-mail...

Forgetfulness: No wonder your brain feels especially foggy these days — hormones are wreaking havoc on your memory and your brain-cell volume actually decreases during the third trimester. Try not to take this temporary pregnancy symptom to heart — stressing about it will only cloud your pregnancy brain even more.

At least it's an actual documented problem. But it still makes you feel like a crazy person. Especially type-A, hyper-organized me. I never forget things.

So please don't hesitate to remind me of any plans we have. Chances are it's stuck somewhere between "maybe cloth diapers are a better option" and "what am I going to eat for lunch?"
