    look at the sticky at the top of this topic. there are candleing pics of the progression. All Black is usualy a good sign at that stage- the baby is just taking up all of the space.

    I am at this stage to about either day 17 or 18. most of them are all dark. I saw a chicken foot in one of them today... so cool.
    some didn't have a lot of movement in there. prob difficult to move arround.
