Last week, I didn't get all of the milk in the pancakes.

I don't remember feeling this way so early with my last PG. I had a friend tell me to eat more fish or brain food. May have to try that I can't stand the forgetfulness!

I have been feeling very forgetful lately as well. Doubling my intake of DHA supplements (I went from 1000 mg to 2000 mg) and buying the DHA milk has helped me alot. Your brain is made up of 60% DHA (and other fats) and your baby will start taking it from your brain if you are not getting enough in your diet. Hope that helps you!

I forget everything while pregnant. I write everything down. I carry my day planner around everywhere. I have to look in it many times a day just to remember where I need to go or what I need to get done.

You know, I have been feeling this way lately but didn't know exactly how to describe it. But loopy is definitely the word! I've never felt this with any of my previous pregnancies, and it's driving me crazy. I've been a mess at work and at home. Hoping this passes soon!!
