I was having a long overdue catch up with a pregnant friend, and as it does, conversation drifted onto silly things that we’ve blamed on baby brain. It’s such a thing, it really does exists before and after baby arrives! im not normally clumsy, accident prone or forgetful, but oh baby Baby H did affect me.
So…. Here are my top 4 baby brain ooops moments:
1 Slicing my hand while cutting melon
I was being healthy and it all went wrong. Oh I cringe at the memory. I was just slicing a melon to take to work, in an automatic pilot, 36 week pregnant tired daze. I cut and the new sharp knife slipped straight into my hand between my thumb and forefinger. I had to phone hubby at work to to come home to take me to A+E as it was bleeding everywhere. Of course the one time I need him, he wasn’t at his desk, so, I had to phone one of his colleagues…. and they obviously all thought I was in labour as I was 36 weeks pregnant, obvs. It wouldn’t happen any other time would it?
2. My nearly blow up the microwave incident
This was about 7 months after H was born, I microwave sterilised some new toys. BIG MISTAKE. They were a plastic rattle and a tambourine. Big big BIG #mummyfail. (I did post about it here).
3. The lost key
I was constantly loosing things. I say constantly, and I mean ALL THE TIME, it was hilarious. This started from days after falling pregnant, I could never ever find my car keys. I was CONVINCED hubby had them. He never did, they were always in my bag or pocket, exactly where I (must have) put them. I even did this when 6 weeks pregnant and we’d met up with my mum and dad. They all thought it was hilarious… and they didn’t even know I was pregnant. Needless to say I’d definitely take this as an early pregnancy sign if it started happening again!!
4. The wrong place
I made a cup of tea. It went cold, as tea usually does when you have a little one. So I poured the tea in the bin, while holding the tea bag in the spoon. Yes, poured it in the bin, not the sink. Oooooops. I’ve probably tried to do that many many times when I think about it now, but never link that time. Half the cup was in the bin before I realised it wasn’t right. 😐
