It seems my memory sucks. My husband says he told me something but I either don't remember or Iwasnt paying attention because I always have a million things on my mind. Lots of time I know he never told me something but he claims he told me. Maybe his memory isn't as good either. Who knows!
Told him he needs to write things down on our calendar but he doesn't remember too. How ironic huh? Lol

Anyone else feel this way..

Yes it is Baby Brain and I do think it is because we have so much we have to do, how could we not forget things. I once RSVP to a birthday party and totally forgot that I did it. The "MOM" was totally rude when i spoke to her again. I have 6 kids give me a break!

I swear I have child induced ADD. I cant remember or focus on anything since my children have been born. It is extremely frustrating!

YES! Baby brain is real. I think we just block out the unimportant stuff to save room for the important stuff.

There have been lots of studies on "baby brain" and a lot of people believe it. Some say it natures way of making sure we don't forget about our babies so we forget other things that aren't as important.

I've had 3 children so I have no hope!!!! :-) I have found lists really help with remembering things though.
