It's official: the pregnancy crazies begin

After getting ready this morning I went downstairs to collect all of my things for work. I like to be out of the house by 7:15 at the latest (who knew I could be a morning person?) so I am very particular about making my lunch the night before and laying out my outfit.

I took my prenatal vitamin which has been responsible for nary a broken nail in months and made sure my cell phone was in my purse. I then opened the fridge to get my lunch. But wait! It wasn't there?!? Of course, that's when I started talking to myself. "Where is it? I know I packed it yesterday. Where could it have gone to?"

Scratching my head I looked up and yes, there it was. Sitting on top of the fridge as it had been all night. I usually put the empty one up there when I'm not bringing my lunch. But I have never forgotten to put a packed lunch in the fridge. I took out the yogurt and got a new one (no way was that going to be good) and am hopeful that the leftover pasta with red sauce will be OK after a minute or two in the microwave.

On my way to work I called A. and she reassured me that the crazies will continue. Her husband told me that even better will be the clumsiness. Um, I'm already a klutz so that won't be good. At least I know to put my hands out when I'm falling (yes, DH, I'm looking at you). What about the rest of you? Any moments where you just want to smack yourself in your head (whether you were pregnant or not)?

I kept dropping glasses of water. I blame swollen hands.

I do stuff like that all the time, and I"m certainly not pregnant, just constantly distracted! I don't even panic anymore, I know important things like keys, phones, etc will show up.
