Babies Bump and 27 Week Update

27 WEEKS LOOKS LIKE THIS:

 
 
The look of exhaustion is spot on :)
How far along:  The above pictures were taken at 27 weeks 4 days.
Total weight gain?  I'm still up 29 lbs.  I'm trying to pack on as many pounds as I can in hopes that these little guys will reap all of the benefits!
Maternity clothes?  Yes, yes and yes. The non maternity leggings that I so loved are not really working for me anymore so I recently bought a handful of maternity lounge clothes that I'm thinking might be good for the hospital stay.  By the way, I can't even believe a hospital stay... for BABIES... MY babies, is something I'm even thinking about!!
Stretch marks?  Still none... Not sure how I've escaped them so far!
Sleep:  Still stinks.  Right now I love sleep but also hate it.  My right nostril is completely blocked every night.  I wear Breathe Right strips but even they don't really do the trick.
Best moment this week:  My shower.  Holy cow!!  MY shower!  How can I be this lucky?  I really feel like this has all been a dream.  It's the only explanation for what is happening in my life right now (shower post and pictures to come)...
Miss anything?  Coffee Oreo ice cream!  I'm on a pre-three hour glucose test diet right now that is high in carbs (which is odd) and includes other examples of dairy and also fruit.  Ice cream isn't on the list so I haven't indulged in three days... And I'm dying!  My test is tomorrow and I'm praying that I will pass!
Movement:  Best feeling in the world.  And is reassurance that my sweet little miracles are doing well!
Food cravings:  Still none.  Actually, I lied... coffee Oreo ice cream!
Anything make you queasy or sick?  Still nothing in particular, but anything can do the trick.  I tend to fight some light nausea in the morning but for the most part, I've been cured of the debilitating nausea that plagued me for the first oh so many weeks of this pregnancy!
Gender:  LOVE my Boys!
Labor Signs:  None.  Phew!
Symptoms:  The same… but I'm adding in general discomfort.  I hate saying/typing that but it's the truth.  It's NOTHING that I wouldn't deal with for my  baby boys, though!  
Belly button in or out?  In.  But it is really starting to stretch- my belly button hole is not nearly as deep!
Wedding rings on or off?  Officially off.
Looking forward to:  Hopefully passing my 3 hour glucose test and entering my THIRD TRIMESTER!!!  Wow. Just wow....  I really am living my dream.  Praise God!
