The Big Move

This past month, DH and I packed up our home and moved back to our old apartment in my in-laws basement. Yes a move from home sweet home in North Carolina to ol' New York.

We are pretty devastated. We love everything about NC - everything except that we have NO family here and our little one will be here very shortly. So, now we live back in our old apartment and still pay a mortgage on a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath back in NC that we could not sell. DEVASTATED.

Hopefully this house sells soon so we can purchase a new one up here in NY. Until then, we live with my in-laws in their basement apartment and pray that the St. Joesph in the ground back in NC does his magic!

Baby Shower!!!

Yesterday was my NJ shower. My Mom and sister threw a great party and it was a total surprise. I thought I was going down there for a dinner for my sister. DH dropped me off at my parent's lake house in NY where my Dad was. He was going to drive me to their house in Colts Neck. Little did I know that his car has no AC.

Dear Daddy,
I am 8 months pregnant and on my way to
a really nice dinner. Now that I am 600
degrees and a sweaty mess, I am going to look
like crap for dinner - which actually turned out
to be my shower. STOP BEING CHEAP AND
Love, Anastasia

So when I got there with frizz all over my head and makeup running down my face, I was REALLY surprised. It was all of my Mom's family and my Dad's Mom as well. My mom made little chocolates and a really beautiful pink cake. She also made one of those oversized cupcakes for the Daddy. DH couldn't make it because of work so she sent me home with a nice treat for him.

We played a bunch of games including "Which candy does this dirty diaper smell like"...lol eeww. My nose still has prego super sense so I won 3/4.

I could not eat most of the food. My very silly Mama had mini cold cut sandwiches, lobster salad and eggplant parm. The cake was delish though. I will post pics when I get them!!

L & D

First trip to L & D today. Not scary at all 0_0. They thought that I was leaking fluids so I went in and they hooked me all up and monitored me all morning. After a while I was told that while I was leaking fluid, it was a small tear that healed itself and that all would (should) be good from here on out. Only a month and a half left baby girl. Stay in there and stay safe!!

On a side note, being in there made being pregnant feel even more real. Soon I will be in there for real, really having our little girl. Squeeeee!
