    Is anyone still suffering with this?

    Before I had my children I would say I was fairly intellient. But since having them I feel so stupid. My brain seemed to recover a bit after my first, but since having Logan I feel like its getting worse. I'm finding it quite frustrating. My memory is awful and I struggle to remember even the simplist things. I can't even do simple mathematics without the use of a calculator. And I ask people the most stupid questions!

    Please tell me I'm not alone! X

    I said this to somebody the other day. Before I got pregnant I was organised, both at work and at home; I kept on top of everything like finances and diary easily, and was fairly relaxed about it all.

    From the minute I found out I was pregnant things started to go downhill at work - not in such a way that I didn't manage to get my work done, but I found that my concentration was pretty much shot - I think it was partly tiredness, partly anxiety, and partly just excited-ness so I all I could think about was LO.

    Since I've had LO my brain has just been mush. After giving birth I was on a multitude of pills for various things and I had to write lists to remind me what to take when, and to remind me what I had actually taken, otherwise I got confused and had no idea what was going on.

    Ten months on and I still don't feel capable of keeping on top of our finances or diary, and it does worry me - I'm really hoping it's just down to lack of time and sleep and not that my brain is permanently broken :eh: I'm going back to work in two months and if my brain hasn't improved by then I don't quite know what I'll do?!

    Hope you are so lucky! I bought a calender for the first time ever, and set reminders on my phone, yet still forget to do things! I honestly feel like I'm going crazy some days! Glad I'm not alone though x
