    When I saw the post title "BRA incubator" I thought that maybe BRA was the initials of a brand name or something. I started reading, and ended up reading the entire thread. I wouldn't ever try it, though, because I'd probably bump into something and smash the egg within the first few hours. Good luck. I'll be subscribing to this thread so I can keep up with your progress. [​IMG]

    Glad to hear the first night passed safely. [​IMG]

    I'm still terribly tempted to try this. I'd need to find a suitable sports bra though. I know what kind I want but haven't seen one in my size.

    Come to think of it though I do have some singlets with a shelf bra in them, they might be perfect! [​IMG] Have to dig them out, I've put on weight since I used to wear them but that should mean they'd fit nice and tight to keep the egg safe.
    Oh my, DH will think I've cracked if he finds out I'm even contemplating this! [​IMG]

    Y'all are so funny to me! I'm not sure yet about lockdown. I really wanna take this to the hatch. I'm still thinking about lockdown. BUT, I do have a update. Day 3 starts at Midnight tonight EST. I could not, I repeat, could not help myself from candling. I consider myself a good candler, so I did it. The first picture is an identical egg from the fridge and the second picture is from my Bra-bator.

    Cool! I also usually have a peek at day 3, congrats! [​IMG]

    What are you using to candle? Even with the light leaking you can see inside really well. I'm using an LED torch and it's good but yours looks better. [​IMG]

    It's just some small LED light my Dad gave me. I had to let some of the light leak or my camera's aperture stayed open too long.
