    And I can't stop thinking about the babies! I set them last night and I've been paranoid ALL DAY at work about the temp and humidity and turning... My BF thinks I'm going insane [​IMG]

    How the heck do you stay sane and stop worrying while you're at work??? Maybe it's partly because I've never done this and I don't know the incubator yet. I'm SO paranoid that I'm going to get home and the temp and humidity will be all kinds of wrong and I'll have ruined my eggs before they even really get going... I think I'm going insane!

    I get past it by setting them on weekends only so I can take the day to check the incubator constantly!

    This way they also start to hatch on weekends, so it's a win/win for me.

    I was exactly the same lol. So excited yet terrified something would go wrong, There's not a great deal you can do while you're at work unless some-ones at home to check on them or you're able to pop home in your lunch break?
    Good luck with it hopefully all will go without a hitch [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
