Not yet Karen, I did have a little peek today... there is one that may be ok, the egg looks kind of dark but has a paler layer at the top? I'm hoping that it is filled with tort and the pale bit is the egg sac... what do you think? I am on day 50... I can't see anything in the rest, one looks to have veins but at day 42 I can't see it being anything?

Thanks for that Karen I shall have a look at your link.
I haven't fussed too much with my eggs. Although I am dying to look properly I am unbelievably clumsy... I know I need to stay away! :lol:
I am trying to just let nature take it's course, needs must!!
