    15 Pregnant Women Who Were Sadly Defeated By Their Own Brains

    "I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why my Target card wouldn't work at Walmart."

    1. Pregnancy brain can be so powerful that it makes you forget how far along you are:

    My wife and I went for a walk and halfway through she got scared that we left the baby at the house. It’s still in her stomach. #PregnancyBrain

    2. It can make you miss something important:

    Katie literally microwaved air yesterday. Lol. #pregnancybrain

    3. It can make you get a little tongue-tied:

    Tried to order a lemon drizzle cake instead I asked for a lesbian #pregnancybrain

    4. It can mess with your phone game:

    I just left a voicemail and said " please call me back at your convenience. Amen." Instead of "goodbye". #pregnancybrain is real y'all

    5. And it can make you forget you were even pregnant at all:

    Sometimes I forget I'm pregnant, catch myself in the mirror & think: 'God, I've really let myself go' #pregnancybrain

    6. It can make you forget your own address:

    No joke. I literally invited all my friends to the wrong house. #Pregnancybrain

    7. It can make you get your stores a little confused:

    OMGosh! I literally spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why my Target card wouldn't work at Wal-Mart! 😳#PregnancyBrain #thestrugglesReal

    8. It can make you forget to take care of business:

    I walked into a bathroom stall, placed a toilet seat cover down and then flushed it. Then I walked out of the stall totally disregarding the fact that I still need to go. #PregnancyBrain

    9. It can make you have a little early-morning mix-up:

    I literally just went to my calculator app to turn off my morning alarm #preggobrain

    10. And it can give you a case of mistaken identity β€” your own:

    I was just leaving work and I got in someone else's car πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I was like wtf what am I doing #pregnancybrain

    11. It can make you get your doors mixed up:

    I just opened the fridge to get my coat out...if that gives any indication how this pregnancy is going πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #secondtrimester #pregnancybrain

    12. It can leave you with an unpleasant surprise:

    You know #pregnantbrain is real & in full effect when you put deodorant on your toothbrush instead of toothpaste πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #8monthsandcounting

    13. It can fool you into thinking you're starting your day on the right foot:

    Day 1 of 365:..Woke up early. Made myself coffee in the keurig.... without a cup..πŸ™ˆ #preggobrain #NewYearsDay #bumplife

    14. It can leave you totally unaware of how much of a genius you are:

    I just had the most exciting idea and then completely forgot it. Come on #PregnancyBrain

    15. And it can leave you seriously wondering how the hell you're getting from one day to the next:

    I have two brains in my body but I've never been so clueless πŸ˜‚ #pregnancybrain #pregnancyproblems #17weeks #pregolife
