NYC Trip!

Posted on

It’s been a few weeks since my last post mainly because I was in NYC last week.  My husband was in a wedding in Long Island over the weekend so we decided to make a week of it and go the Monday before the wedding weekend. I had never been to NYC before so my itinerary consisted of a TON of touristy stops.  We went to Times Square, Rockefeller Center, FAO Schwarz, Wall Street, 9-11 Memorial, Tiffany’s, Grand Central Station, Lego Store (of course because my hubby is obsessed with Legos and can’t wait to buy some for baby) and American Museum of Natural History; we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, rode the Staten Island Ferry across to see the Statue of Liberty, took a romantic carriage ride through Central Park and saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway.  I even got a chance to meet a fellow D-blogger, Scott from Rolling in the D!  It was great to meet you Scott, I’m glad we were able to make it happen and the weather turned out well.  I randomly got a Motor Error the next day, my first time with the new pump, crazy coincidence right?

We did a TON of walking and by the end of the week, my back was killing me from carrying around the baby the whole time in my belly.  I don’t know how guys with beer bellies do it for longer than a week or 9 months!  I did get a lot of nice treatment because of my belly during the week.  I encountered at least 4 long bathroom lines where the women in the line offered me a spot in the front, instead of waiting.  I only took this offer up once though.  I also always had a subway seat and I got a TON of smiles from people all over the place (maybe New Yorkers are just always that friendly but I think my belly had something to do with it).  My blood sugars did OK throughout the week, not too great.  I actually talked about my diabetes and pregnancy during the trip over at Diabetes Sisters’ website, so check it out!  Since I discussed my blood sugars over there, I won’t rehash it here so I’ll just share some photos from the trip here instead:

Also, the wedding weekend was a blast.  There was more food than I could have ever imagined and a live band made it a really fun wedding reception. I’m still recovering from how late I stayed up that night haha.

  1. Wow! You’ve seen and done more in New York in a week than I’ve been to in a lifetime! (Love that dinosaur picture from the museum!)

    It was definitely great to meet you – even if we didn’t get a photo (I’m sure we can Photoshop something together), and I’m glad you had a great trip! Sure sounds like fun.

    And sorry about that Motor Error….hope it wasn’t too much of a pain in the butt to deal with…

    • Nope, the motor error wasn’t too big a deal. We had just ordered food at a restaurant though and had about an hour before the Broadway show so it was really bad timing but I just disconnected and rewound, then refilled the pump and it worked fine. It was just so odd that you were talking about motor errors the night before and I got my first one with the new pump the next day!
