pregnancy hazard #1,763,098

Forgetting things. For example, the other day at work, I forgot how to use the "Track Changes" feature in Microsoft Word. Now, for someone who has been working in a corporate environment since 1995 -- many of those years as a marketing writer and editor -- this may sound wacky. But I assure you, it happened last Thursday. I needed to edit a document and I spent several minutes searching for how to track my changes. Logically, you would think that it would be under the Edit menu. Alas, it is not. After looking at every single menu available in Microsoft Word, I finally found the elusive Track Changes feature under the Tools menu. Where, of course, it's been all along. After I did finally discover it (and realize that I have become certifiably insane), I got really pissed off that it WASN'T under the Edit menu. I mean, wouldn't you go to the edit menu when you want to edit something?

Call me crazy, because I am.

that rascally track changes feature! the nerve of microsoft to mis-file it. i think your logic makes perfect sense...looking under "edit" seems totally intuitive to me too.

only a couple more weeks of pregnancy, though, and you'll be back to your old elphant self. hmmm...that probably doesn't come across the way i intended it too. i don't mean elephant as in LARGE, i mean elephant as in the animal that never forgets.

I, too, have been described as an elephant (I never forget anything), but during pregnancy it was so hard. I constantly felt like I couldn't remember what my next step was. Not a good thing when you're required to multi-task at work. While it's certainly a symptom of pregnancy, it lingers on in the sleep-deprived state of new motherhood. Sorry! :)

The very sad thing about this is that I forget things like that on a very regular basis, and I'm not pregnant. When I was pregnant, I can't even say that I was any worse than usual, because I don't think it's possible.
