This One Time, At Band Camp...Wait, What Was I Saying?

I've decided that I'm losing my mind. Yep, the infamous pregnancy brain has officially set in...and I feel like I have a screw loose somewhere. I think no less than three times today something just went totally over my head, or I forgot what the heck I was talking about, or even what I was just about to do.

I've never been a particularly forgetful person. I can rattle off phone numbers, birthdays, names and important times and dates like no one else. Sometimes I can be a bit frazzled, but I never, ever forget the important stuff. Luckily I haven't gotten so bad as to forget my favorite (and only) nephew's second birthday tomorrow, or the fact that my family is in Florida for Easter, or even that Derek is working late tonight so my phone call won't come at it's usual 6:30ish time frame. But more than once today I was in conversation with someone, telling a story or having a discussion, and had to stop and utter the words "wait, where was I going with that?". And just fifteen minutes ago I came home from a little league game with my neighbor, to see her significant other's car parked (knowing that he hadn't left the game yet, as one of the coaches) and found myself asking her "how did Vance beat us home?" To which she replied, "he took the Jeep, remember? We discussed this before we left when you saw his car parked here earlier". What's worse is that as I'm typing this, I'm finding myself having to stop and re-read what I just wrote, to make sure that I'm not off rambling about nothing, and actually making sense.

Derek swears that prego brain is a myth, an excuse for having a few airheaded moments. I however, am raising the BS flag on him with this one. It's in all the pregnancy books. I've heard from the doctor and more than a few moms that it exists, and I swear it's hitting me....

Wait, what was I talking about?
