Baby Green's Nursery

Ok so this nursery. I thought I was set on the bedding and now I'm having major second thoughts. I need some help!! I would appreciate any feedback or comments anyone has for me! I'm going for a gray and white nursery with touches of blue (I think, haha)

So far these are the only two things I've purchased. The crib (PBK) and the dresser (Cymax) that we will use as the changing table also. 
And one other piece of furniture..some type of book case/cubby thing. 

Love the pendant light and shelf....both from restoration hardware baby & child. 

So now the bedding. I was set on this bedding and wanted to do a nautical type theme. With a big pirate boat wheel, anchor on a shelf, boat house mirror etc. 
But now I think I love this Serena and Lily bedding. I'm still unsure of the combo of bumper/sheet/skirt as they do more of a la carte option. I like the simplicity and brightness of it tho for sure. A bit more modern than the RH bedding I'd say. 

Big geometric gray and white rug...still deciding on which exactly but this gives you an idea..

Mirrored side table next to the glider with a small lamp.

I definitely know I want a Little Castle glider, just a question of style and fabric. I think I like the style of the solid gray chair the best.

If I go with the nautical bedding and theme I'd use these pieces...

If I do a more modern nursery without a "theme/character" I like these details... 

A major work in progress and a lot to figure out but organizing my thoughts on here definitely helps. Anybody have any opinions? I am the worlds WORST decision maker. :(

19 weeks

How far along: 19 weeks

Size of baby: A mango!

Total weight gain/loss: 14 lbs. Went to the doctor yesterday so that's the official mark. Now, if I only gain 14 lbs the second half of this pregnancy we'll be in business. :) 

Maternity clothes: Yep, pretty much all maternity because everything is sooo soft and comfy. I don't know how I'll ever give these up. 


Gender:  Baby Green is a sweet little BOY!

 Movement: Nothing new to report. Soon, soon, soon! I hope!  

Sleep: Sleeping a little better actually. Still not sleeping very long but when I am sleeping I'm fairly comfortable. 

Cravings: Nothing new this week. Still loving pickles and green beans. 

Best moment this past week: Being in Alabama for Thanksgiving. They threw me a little surprise baby shower since they won't be able to come to any of the ones this spring and it was so fun! Baby Green got lots of goodies and Alabama gear.  

Symptoms: Feeling great. Don't hardly feel pregnant most of the time, except for this growing belly. My energy is back to normal and I feel like my old self. 

What I'm looking forward to: Christmas!! and buying the nursery furniture. I think I found the dresser I've been looking for and I can't wait to put it all in the room and start decorating! The fun part!!!

Milestones: Baby's kidneys are starting to make urine and hair is sprouting on the top of his head! awww.  

Mood: Happy, happy, happy! 

Labor Signs: still baking away

Wedding rings on or off: on

No chalk board pic this week...but I have these! 

Most exciting purchase last baby green's diaper bag!! I have wanted a Kate Spade diaper bag long before I was pregnant so I am super excited about this purchase. 

Baby shower goodness...

Baby G's new Bama gear!

Feast! We have 30ish people at our Thanksgiving dinner! So fun!
