    I have read about this somewhere.... I promise I'm not making it up! Anyway, apparently it's quite common for some women to have a resting, non-pregnant natural HCG level of 2 or 3 - all day, every day of the year. They never go back to zero. I'm wondering if you might have a slightly higher 'non-pregnant level' - say 10 or 12 - which the FRER's are picking up on? That might explain all the confusing lines you seem to get so often?

    I'm hoping of course that THIS TIME is different and you are well and truly UTD of course. But it might be useful to get a frame of reference for the future?

    Has anyone else ever heard of this?

    Yep, I have Luv

    There are usually medical/hormonal reasons for it. Check this link out:

I include veges in with meat and sauce and either put rice/pasta on top and flip as I serve (so it looks prettier), or I store in seperate little containers. I recently purchased a Sunbeam Banquet size frypan and it can hold 10-12+ large adult serves, so we eat 2 and freeze 10. You could have a look at L&E site for ideas - if they can freeze it so can you... If you have a thermal cooker then have a look a skinnymixers.com.au (if you haven't already) - or f you don't have a thermal cooker there would be heaps of ideas there, that you might be able to adapt?

    Also, if stuck when you have bubbas, maybe put a call out on Quirky's Healthy Hampers (on Facebook) and they'll cook some fresh delights for you? They'd love feeding a first time mum with twins!

    How do you find vacuum sealer economy wise? I use Multix or Glad containers.
    Economy wise it's not too bad as I buy the bags on eBay, but the main thing I like is they are completely air tight so no freezer burn. Not so great for runny things like the pumpkin soup today but still doable.

    Thanks everyone... Interesting theory @Blossom74 but unfortunately I don't think that's it... I have stark white BFNs at other times and only five times in the last eighteen months I've got the squinters for a couple of days before fading out. I test every cycle (addict!) so most cycles don't show any hCG at all and they are obvious BFNs. I think it is more likely implantation failure as I didn't have any trouble falling pregnant prior to starting meds in Nov 14, and have only had chems after that, so something is going wrong. The timing all works perfectly for a chem unfortunately I will have the hysteroscopy early April and see what shows up from that - I'll let my FS know about the chems, the line is too significant to be anything else.
