I think I have Pregnesia!

Women share funny stories of “brain fades” during pregnancy

During pregnancy many women find their normally sharp minds succumb to brain fades, and become rather forgetful during pregnancy, in what some people call pregnant amnesia or “pregnesia”. This may be because the pregnant mind is full of new, important things to think about, leaving the basic everyday stuff to be easily forgotten. While this is just another change women go through during pregnancy, it can present some funny amusing stories:


“I was making tea and coffee for some girlfriends who had come over, when I started to smell burning plastic. I went into the kitchen and notice I had put the electric kettle on the stove top to boil the water! What was most bizarre, I have never owned or used an old fashion kettle in my life!”
