Ah, pregnant brain... :)

Late last night, just before going to bed, I got a craving for sour cream. I LOVE sour cream, with salt added, and some plain bread on the side. It's a Hungarian thing - I remember tubs of sour cream being served as a school lunch with a slab of white bread on the side.

As I stood in the kitchen with my snack of salted sour cream and a piece of biscuit, the thought suddenly entered my mind that maybe such an odd craving at such an odd time meant I could be pregnant. As in, I had totally forgotten that I was already 30 weeks pregnant, and was standing there trying to figure out if I could be "late" and whether or not I had any pregnancy tests in the house. All these thoughts only took me a split second, and then it dawned on me that, um, yes, I was already very pregnant. 

Almost as fun as when I actually forget how old I am, and have to sit and think for a minute.


  1. Although I am only 15 wks pregnant, I do the exact same thing. I was doing something the other day and had the same thoughts for a second- even for a second thought oh yeah, I'm pregnant- did I remember to tell my husband?? Hahaha...I guess 5 kids in and your brain just slips a bit =)

  2. That is so funny. Not as bad as when I was in labor with my first son. I was in labor so long with little progress that I truly became scared. I was thinking, what if I'm not pregnant?! What if I'm only fat?! How will I eplain to everyne that I'm only fat, and there is no baby?!!! Thankfully, soon after, baby was born.

  3. My mother said she thinks pregnant women suffer from memory loss , but I do this when I'm not pregnant :) . My four year old likes to eat sour cream by itself to :) .
