Since the birth of my second child I feel like I’m wandering around in a daze all day long. Today I spent twenty minutes agonising over four balls of wool, I couldn’t decide on colour (even though I have already decided colour before I went) and I just found myself standing there wanting to cry from too much choice. Eventually once my child started whining I realised I needed to make a decision and leave. I just hate this feeling of being vague and unable to make any decisions. It just seems to make everything I try to do so much harder.

I know it will pass eventually but right now when I feel like I need my brain the most it seems to be failing me. I guess it’s just another symptom of being a busy mum.

  • I can remember having that feeling after having my second child because I used to joke with hubby over the fact the my pregnancy brain was still happening. Hope it rights itself soon.


  • great exellent


  • Yes I know the feeling, once your body finally gets used to it it will all be back to normal, fingers crossed anyway. Mine are


  • I’m sure a lot of us have been through this, I think it just comes down to sleepless nights and the new baby that you have just had with adapting to now having to children sometimes I think we all take it that everything will be ok.


  • You’re right, it is pretty normal – and it will get better.

    • Thanks, it’s nice to know it’s normal…I hope it does ease off soon..


  • Sleep deprivation will do that to you. I remember trying to take little naps whenever I got the chance. It did help a little. Hopefully you’ll start feeling better soon. We all go through it and it is really hard. Good luck.

    • Yes you are right I think sleep deprivation does have a lot to do with it and I’m so tired just one or two good night’s sleep isn’t enough, I may take a while until I start to feel normal again. I’m glad now I have extended my maternity leave for another couple of months.
