For the past few summers, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi relished going to the Jersey Shore while film crews captured her every salacious move.

But last summer, when the 4'9" reality star was entering her third trimester (she welcomed son Lorenzo Dominic with fiancé Jionni LaValle on Aug. 26), everything felt different.

"It was definitely a little lonely," Polizzi, 24, reveals. "Everyone was still going out and staying up late and I just wanted to go to bed at 8 o'clock. I didn't want to do everything that everyone else was doing."

As she says in this week's cover story, Polizzi became "a new person" after discovering she was pregnant with her son. "Everything changed," she reflects. "The partying is long gone."

Call it fist-pumping for the future.

Having said he'd be available to deejay in the delivery room when his Jersey Shore castmate Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has her baby boy in early September, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio is already sounding like a proud uncle.

"Snooki is going to make a great mother," DelVecchio, 32, told PEOPLE at Sunday's 2012 Teen Choice Awards. "She's a really nice girl, a sweet girl, and now that the partying is done because she's having this baby, I think she's going to be a great mother."

And when he's not spinning turntables or focusing on his Jersey Shore spinoff The Pauly D Project, the well-tanned man with the architecturally-impressive hair very much wants to play a major role in Snooki's newly reconstituted life.

Snooki is really taking this baby thing seriously. She's quit drinking, she's cut back on partying and she's even quit tanning. Plus, she's getting practice with a stroller

Well, a stroller full of beer and party supplies.

Sporting hot pink shades, an oversized brown shirt that read "Boss," and – of course – her growing baby bump, Snooki looked more or less like her usual self when photographers caught her strolling through Seaside Heights, N.J., Monday.

Snooki Takes a Tumble in Platform Sandals | Nicole Polizzi

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may be pregnant and sober, but she still couldn't stay upright while going for a stroll in platform sandals on the Jersey shore.

The Snooki & Jwoww star has taken spills before – but that's back when she and her Jersey Shore costars were partying! Now, they are back in Seaside Heights, filming Season 6, but none of her costars were around at the time.

"She's fine. She slipped. I don't know if it was the shoe that was the issue or something on the sidewalk like a bump or something that she tripped over," a source tells PEOPLE. "Sad thing was that the paparazzi all kept snapping their photos and no one went to help her. That's kind of sleazy. If you see any pregnant woman fall you should help them."

Maybe just flats from now on? Not anytime soon, adds the source: "She's feeling good and she loves her footwear. Jessica Simpson wore heels almost to the end."
