    Default Memory after having kids

    How bad is yours?

    Mine is shot to hell! I just rang DH to ask him whether it's Wednesday or Thursday, as I just couldn't remember. He had to check his phone to confirm it is indeed Wednesday

    My long term memory is awesome, and always has been. I was telling my dad about a memory I had of a flat we lived in, and the colour and fabric of the couch, as I ripped my toenail off on it. He told me that he and mum lived there until I was 5 mths old, and that the toenail thing actually happened. That's nearly 38 years ago!

    I can never remember my age, and when I'm filling in forms requiring it I often have to stop and work it out. Very simple spelling is another thing I forget, even though I was top of the spelling bee year after year

    Everyday stuff I'm terrible with and have lists everywhere which I usually lose, as with everything else the second I put it down, and am usually sporting a hand covered in pen for the important stuff. I gave up on putting reminders at eye level on the fridge, as I forget they are there...even when looking directly at it.

    I have a joint condition that meant when pregnant with DS I would often be asked to name my specialists and medication, and the hospital got used to reeling off a list of names for me, until I went "YES!!".

    So, is it just me? Baby brain, or more? Oh, and does anyone know that test thingymijig is online to assess your risk of alzheimers later on, as I saw it on TV but can't remember where

    Its horribly bad how much I dont remember. It only takes literally 2 seconds for me to forget what I was saying or that i was actually saying something or doing something.

    Oh and now that im pregnant again its only getting worse. The scan lady asked my date of birth and I honestly couldn't tell her. I forgot my phone number and my childs date of birth. The only thing I COULD tell her was when my last period was and thats only cos I read it on the form minutes before getting called in for my scan.
    Hahaha. Seriously horrible and above is only a smidge of what its like :/ lol
