16 hilarious pregnancy brain fails that will make you feel better about yours

'A bird leaf? Wisp? Flyer'

Your body is amazing, and it goes through a whole lot of changes during the nine wonderful months of pregnancy.

It's busy growing teeny feet and tiny ears, making milk as well as stretching to accommodate something that will, eventually, become the size and weight of a watermelon. A. WATERMELON.

So, you can be forgiven when you forget to close the car door, or when matching shoes just weren't a priority, it's pregnancy brain fog and it strikes wherever, whenever - and make sure your loved ones know that too.

Psst! We've also heard rumours that it can hang around for up to two years after you've had your baby...

And ladies, trust us when we tell you that it's a very real phenomenon, as these women will testify...
