27 Weeks & Nursery Plans

Just a quick update today, followed by a fun sneak peek into our plans for baby girl’s nursery! 🙂

Size of Baby Brickner:  The size of an eggplant!

Maternity Clothes:  Yes, plus some of my pj’s are as tight as ever.  I found myself headed to my husband’s drawer the other night out of desperation, I’m thinking I need to invest in a few more to last me the thirteen weeks ahead!

Best Moment This Week:  Baby girl has been moving so much lately, my hubby, Waverly & I have a new ritual of feeling her move & talking with her every night.  Also, we were at the mall & Waverly said, “we have to find a new outfit for my baby sister, ok?!”.  I just know she is going to be so sweet with her & it couldn’t make me happier! 🙂

Miss Anything:  Getting up & down comfortably.  Bending down to pick up after Waverly these days is brutal, sometimes I really wonder if I am going to make my way back up again.

Movement:  Yes, & she feels LOW in there as ever, which has to be why I have to pee every ten minutes (or sooner).  It’s still my favorite though, feeling her move will never, ever get old & is hands down my favorite part of pregnancy!! 

Cravings:  A lot of the same, just on a rotation of seriously starving & then seriously full!

Queasy or Sick:  No, but the exhaustion is starting to creep it’s way back in, which I am hoping is not a sign for the third trimester right around the corner.

Looking Forward To:  More progress on the nursery in the few weeks ahead!  Now that Waverly’s bed is done & she is fully transitioned, we are as focused as ever on baby girl’s room & I am excited to share some of our inspiration!  Even before we knew that this babe was a girl, we planned to do a wood pallet wall for the nursery.  My husband & I both love the one we did in our downstairs, so I thought it would be such a fun way to highlight the wall where we put the crib!  Since then we have decided to go with mint as the main pop of color, I have always loved it, it is such a sweet shade of blue that has the best vintage, feminine feel.  Of course, we are throwing in shades of gold (because I always throw in shades of gold, I don’t think I know how not to!), & finally, are painting the walls grey to contrast with the bright white crib & dresser that we are currently on the hunt for.  I have found some fun accessories over the last couple of months & it’s all starting to come together, especially since my husband just finished putting the wall up over the weekend.  I hope to share some pictures of our progress soon! 🙂

Wishing you all a happy week!

    Ummm, your nighttime tradition is so stinking cute. What a sweet family moment at the end of the day!

    Love the nursery color scheme. Super pretty and soft, that pillow is adorable! Have a great day and stay safe and warm in the ice!

    Love that you are incorporating a pallet wall in the nursery. That will look amazing! Especially with the colors you've chosen. Love! And I totally know what you mean, Mama. The bending over/up and down thing is getting tough with this belly! You look adorable:)

    LOVE the inspiration you have for the nursery–they're great colors! 🙂 Can't wait to see everything together!!

    I love the colors! I also love that it's something that actually isn't too far off from waverlys since your using gold and the colors all go well together! I can't wait to see the finished product!

    I love the inspiration board!! All of my favourite colour combo's right there… and the pallet wall will be adorable 🙂

    Waverly "We have to find a new outfit for my sister, ok?!" I am dying, that is so darling!! Can't wait to see your girls together 🙂 xo

    You KNOW I'm in love with the nursery inspiration! EEE! 🙂
    I'm having the tight PJ prob too. HA!

  8. March 2, 2015 / 1:58 pm

    We are doing a mint scheme as well. Not knowing the gender, I'm so drawn to the gold combo but have to stop myself from making the room to "girlie" as of now. Haha

    You look amazing! LOVE the color pink on you!
    Oh my gosh… Waverly shopping for her little sis. ADORABLE! I don't even have to guess who she learned that from 😉
    I can't WAIT to see what you do with the nursery! It's going to be soooooo cute!

  10. March 2, 2015 / 2:18 pm

    You sure know how to rock the crop top lady!! You are as cute as ever!! And I LOVE everything about the nursery!!!! You had me at pallet wall!!!! 😉

  11. March 2, 2015 / 3:16 pm

    LOVE the nursery – I can't wait to see it all come together! You have such an eye for this stuff! 😉 This update is IDENTICAL to what I wrote – She is SO LOW, it's crazy, and she moves SO MUCH! Do you feel like she moves more than Waverly? I remember Cam being a mover, but not like this!! I LOVE it, though!!! And, hello, exhaustion….I guess we knew it was coming, right?! I'll take it over nausea anyd ay! I hope you have a great week!! xo

    Ooh I love the teal with the gold! Totally random and I'm not sure if you even watch How To Get Away With Murder but you kind of look like Lila (the girl who got murdered)!

  13. March 2, 2015 / 4:16 pm

    LOVE your outfit!!! Seriously I think I need to come to VB for you to teach me a thing or two in your fashion class!
    And LOVE the inspiration for baby girl's room! The pallet wall will be AMAZING and I'm loving the color combo!

  14. March 2, 2015 / 4:44 pm

    You need more pink! Looking great girl! I'm loving how W talks with her and needs to be reassured about outfits for her! haha so sweet! The nursery inspiration is fabulous as well and I CANNOT wait to see more!!

    Loving your bump updates 🙂 the crop top on top of another shirt is seriously genius! My last pregnancy I lived in leggings and sweatshirts. Next time I'll have to step it up in terms of fashion! Xo Chelsea play. wash. rinse. repeat.

    Love the nursery plan! A pallet wall! My heart just skipped a beat!

  18. March 2, 2015 / 8:17 pm

    The nursery plans are so perfect!! 🙂 Love it. And trust me, it gets pretty wild chasing/toting around a 2 year old when you are enormously pregnant near the end. You just learn to laugh at yourself and remember how quickly it will pass!

  19. March 2, 2015 / 8:23 pm

    You look beautiful, and I'm sure her nursery is going to be beautiful, too!
    We're attempting a wood pallet headboard for our bed instead of buying a new headboard. Hoping it goes well!!!

    How cute that Waverly wanted to buy something for her little sister! Love the nursery colors! I can't wait to see it all finished and put together!

  21. March 2, 2015 / 9:58 pm

    Loving your nursery inspiration: can't wait for picks. And I hate to say it, but the exhaustion has returned for me… I was in denial for a few days last week and thought it was just due to some tough workouts, but I think it officially is the third trimester causing it. I don't remember it coming the exhaustion at the end with liam, but having a toddler changes things.

  22. March 2, 2015 / 10:16 pm

    Yeah, peeing alll the time over here too!!

    I'm obsessed with mint. It's one of my favorite colors!! And I love the idea of a pallet wall. So gorgeous and will be an amazing focal point in the room. Can't wait to see it all come together!!

  23. March 2, 2015 / 10:27 pm

    How sweet is Waverly? Already shopping for little sister. So cute.
    The nursery – I'm LOVING it all! Can't wait to see everything together!

  24. March 3, 2015 / 4:14 pm

    Those are the same colors as the wedding I'm going to be in next month 🙂 Sooo gorgeous. Hope everything comes together and the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly

  25. March 3, 2015 / 5:25 pm

    The nursery looks like it is going to be beyond beautiful!!
    Love your taste!!

  26. March 3, 2015 / 10:21 pm

    Love the colors for her nursery!!! I bought some leggings from the juniors Section in Target, they are fold over ones and work perfect for sleeping, I'm only 22 weeks and have plenty more growing to do 🙂
