Surprise! Pregnancy will make you tired. Really, really fucking tired…

So, yesterday I fell asleep while eating. True story.

I don’t think I’ve ever been this oh-my-god-I’m-so-fucking-tired in my entire life.

My brain doesn’t seem to be computing things. Neurons aren’t talking to each other, mental messages a getting lost and only being retrieved five to six hours later.

Shit, have you ever woken up in the middle of the night to remember the name of that actor that stared in that show back in the 90s? I have.

I don’t want to use ‘baby brain’ as a real excuse. At this stage it’s a throwaway joke.

“Oh look, I’m wearing a shoe on my head… baby brain!”

“Oh look, I just set the kitchen on fire… it’s that damn baby brain again”

Yes, of course. Some of the time it is baby brain. No matter how hard you force yourself to think of something… URGH… you just can’t. Other times it’s just normal life shit clogging up your mental pathways.

There have been times when I’ve been so exhausted that I nodded off midway through a meal. Spoon suspended in air, mouth open wide, and copious amounts of drool. The miracle of new life, everyone.
