Pregnancy. What a journey, right? It’s a time of joy, anticipation, and endless Google searches about what to expect when you’re expecting. Among all the new experiences and changes your body goes through, there’s one phenomenon that often leads to some funny and unforgettable moments.

#25 Let’s say I “hypothetically” forgot to take a Pyrex lid out of the oven before I preheat it, and it “hypothetically” melted. What would be the best way to get the plastic off the hypothetical oven rack? Or would one need to just throw the whole damn oven out?

#50 Opened the fridge to find this. It’s been hours. Thank you, pregnancy, for making me brain-dead.

#51 We went out for coffee & beer with a bunch of people last night. I spent the whole night with mismatching shoes on. Had no clue. Can’t see my feet anyway. Not until we were leaving did @joshmosh say, “I think I should tell you something, but I don’t want to make you sad.” 🤦🏼‍♀️ I mean, at least they’re the same style of

#58 When your preggo brain thinks you’re pouring ginger ale…

#59 When you’ve been searching your house for two days for your lavender oil, and it’s been on your bathroom shelf the whole time. Pregnancy brain really might be the end of me lol.

#60 Talk about prego brain. I was rushing to the post office and I didn’t bother to look down.

Is morning as I was looking in the fridge for milk and couldn't find it, Rod gave me a second set of eyes.

Both of us were so confused as to where it went since I had some as a snack before bed last night. Then I remembered, I drank it out of a wine glass (it makes me feel fancy), and I've been putting items in the wrong cabinet lately. Previously with other items I caught and corrected it, but last night #PregoBrain won. Poor Rod had to go buy more milk this morning! Thank God for that man!

#70 So glad my oatmeal is keeping cool. Pregnancy brain… Totally put it in there and didn’t realize that until I went to make lunch just now.

#71 Watching the 3rd period of the Kings’ game we recorded last night before going to sleep.

Watching the 3rd period of the Kings' game we recorded last night before going to sleep.

The Kings scored their 4th goal, and I see a ton of fans along the glass celebrating. So surprised, I texted the hubby.  I have two brains in my body right now and never felt more dumb!!! I better just go to bed.

#73 If anyone wants to know how the end of pregnancy is going.

#75 I have such severe #PregoBrain that if I didn’t take #lunchbox pictures, I would forget what to pack. I totally reference these the next day. I’m trying out ham for the toddler and craizens and dried bananas, but the 1st grader told me to take the dried fruit out because it’s gross.

#78 N case anyone is wondering, I am walked an opened tub of butter to the garage and put it on the passenger seat instead of in the refrigerator. Weeks pregnant 🤰🏻🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️.
