I'm only 5 weeks along, but I feel so stupid half the time, lol. I do silly things at work that don't make sense. I get halfway through a sentence and then stop...and I've forgotten what I'm saying! I even get distracted and have trouble paying attention when I'm driving (which really really makes me nervous). I've heard this happens towards the end of pregnancy, and even after the baby, but so soon? lol, I feel like a mental wreck!

I'm already there too. I make the dumbest mistakes at work lately and can't seem to remember anything right now.

Definately there, and it's scaring me to death.

A friend of mine says there are actually studies that show that pregnant women have a harder time concentrating and stuff ...

lol, perfect! And I used to be a whiz at crossword puzzles. I would do a couple every night before bed. Well since I've been so sleepy (and falling asleep on the sofa at 8 pm) I hadn't been doing them. But yesterday I tried doing one and I got bored b/c I was having trouble concentrating - I NEVER GET BORED WITH CROSSWORD PUZZLES! lol this is insane!

It's definitely not just you. I've got it too.
