Ok. So… Yeah. I have had pregnancy fog and new Mom fog like…..five times since the first time but my youngest is now eleven. Count it…..1 left finger and 1 right finger. Now bring ’em together.
She’s E – L – E – V – E – N.
Yes y’all. Ten plus 1. Off the nipple for 9 years now. I am so serious. Baby breath is now small-person-dragon-breath with Me screaming “Did you brush your teeth this morning”.
You get the idea right?
So, my question is:
How Long Is It Supposed to Last? Because, I can’t remember nothing until an hour before or after it has passed the deadline. I am currently attending Colorado Technical University online for my Bachelors of Science in Psychology.
Let me tell you!
I sit down to my computer for an assignment and walk away about 2 minutes later because I literally talk to myself and say “Girl, I got nu-thin'”.
There is a study Published in the Medical Journal of Australia, where researchers from Deakin University examined the cognitive function of 709 pregnant women and 521 non-pregnant women in what is considered to be the first study of its kind. The results showed expectant mothers performed worse on tasks measuring attention, decision-making, planning and memory.
…..and it appears, from what I read, that it starts in the first trimester!
I always said that my kids took my brain cells. Oh.My.Goodness! …and I did that to myself 5 times?!? Sheesh!
It’s now No wonder to me why I can’t get anything done. The study also stated that everything returns to normal about 2 years after the birth of the child.
But….what happened to my brain cells? It feels like they’re on strike.
So, to help myself work through this fog, I decided to order a book that will help me understand ‘what it is that I am going through’……
*ahem! *cough, cough* ….11 years postpartum.
Do you have Mom Fog? How do you work through it when you are trying to do something for yourself?… that is completely NOT mom related in nature? Does it ever go away? Comment below and let me know I am not alone …..please? (my sanity thanks you)
Whew! I need a nap! ……or is that the fog coming again? 😒
