    I look at my timesheet and can't figure where half my day went. My to do list will not diminish at all, and today i had trouble remembering how to spell my name.

    I'm planning to work until 36 or 37 weeks.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get my freakin head together???

    I shouldn't laugh, and I'm very sorry OP, but I did just have a good giggle. There isn't a cure that I know of (although chocolate helps)... and it doesnt go away after bub is born either!!

    I always thought baby brain was a myth until I fell pregnant... The fatigue just takes over and stops your brain operating!! Stay hydrated and eat plenty, I found snacking on grapes all day seemed to give me a bit more energy! Plus a few breaths of fresh air outside would usually refresh me for an hour or so...

    Goddam gals, someone give me some hope!!
    My pharmacist suggested fish oil (coz i usually take gingko), might help me as well as being good for bub.
    Have any of you tried it? Did it help at all?

    Outlook and post-it note reminders became my best friend lol. As soon as I thought of something I'd have to write it down so I wouldn't forget it! My desk was awash with yellow sticky notes but at least I never forgot anything and things still got done on time :P
