You're giving him a good clean on the inside OP. Joking aside I'm sure he'll notice straight away and I'm sure he would understand. Pregnancy is a big job! Have a laugh, I hope he does :P

Yes. While pregnant your brain shrinks and takes upwards a year to return beck to normal size. In rare situation the brain can remain unsized.

It's basic biology You have a second human growing in your uterus so your body has to produce all sorts of hormones to not just eject the foreign body. Think how puberty affects people. It's the same thing on a completely different level.

Yes Pregnancy brain is real, but I believe it's more for forgetfulness, weird reasoning and emotions. My sink with dishsoap is perpendicular and a few feet away from my fridge where I make my husband's lunch. I don't think I would have ever gone for a bottle of colourful (mines blue!) liquid over BBQ sauce in even my most 'frenzied pregnant, 3 year old at my leg asking for snackies' state. Unless my eyes were closed and I kept my soap in the fridge. I have no idea, and hardly believe this happened. At the very least, after squirting that stuff on, you'd be able to see the colour and redo it all! It does make for a funny story though!

Yup, pretty real. I at seven weeks got a taxi to go across town to a store only to completely forget what I was there for. I cried as the helpless sales girl tried to give me suggestions on what it might had been. I only remembered 2 days later.

pregnancy brain is real. and horrible. happens to me all the time at work when i am told to write a letter for a patient with all the information and then i have to go and awkwardly stand outside of the O.R. waiting for the patient to finish a surgery (we do feet so usually it's an ingrown nail removal) and i have to stand there asking nurses to see if anyone can remind me what the doctor told me some 2 minutes before. now.. the whole completely confusing dish soap with bbq? that's not what pregnancy brain is.

totally real. I'm not sure how the BBQ sauce dish soap mix up came about, but I've done some not so brilliant things while growing humans. with my youngest, I was 33 weeks along, completely exhausted because even when my then 1 year old would let me sleep i couldn't because I was so uncomfortable, and I went to wash the dishes. only the dish soap by the sink was empty I went to get more from the pantry. somehow I managed to grab corn syrup instead and it took me nearly an hour to figure out why my dishes weren't getting clean but instead getting sticky and gross.

I mean, he is a full grown adult who could make his own lunch...

Maybe it was OP's initiative? Nowhere does it say that she does it everyday. I'll make dinner/lunch for my fiance sometimes and he'll do the same for me. Whats wrong with her making lunch for him?

I'm a stay at home mom and my husband works 10 hrs days, 6 days a week. I make his lunch every day and make sure his clothes are clean and laid out for him. He works hard so I don't have to, so I will gladly do those things for him. Sure he's capable, but so am I.

Or maybe people still do things for each other because they love each other and aren't too proud to do something your PC generation has suggested is demeaning. I'm sure he appreciates the sandwich and I'm sure she appreciates him going to work..

I kinda think this is bs. I had pretty bad pregnancy brain/ mommy brain but don't understand how you could even possibly mistakenly replace BBQ sauce with dish soap. Like do you keep your bottle of dish soap in the fridge or store your BBQ sauce beside/under the sink?

I imagined that OP took the bbq sauce out the fridge and put it on the kitchen bench which was close to the sink. So when OP went to grab it she grabbed the wrong one.

my worse was. teeing coffee without the grounds and melting a spatula on a burner I hadn't turned off. I really can't see how this mistake can be made unless the two are kept in close quarters.
