    I'm on day 18 and I'm going totally nuts! I've been patient for the most part up to this point, but now I'm so nervous that I'm sick to my stomach.

    It doesn't help that this first batch are my three year old son's. I really want them to hatch! I'm just scared that, despite my best efforts, and the fact that they're all alive and kicking in there, that none of them will actually hatch.

    If this is day 18, then the next few days are going to be CRAZY! (well, they are anyway, we're moving soon and all that fun stuff is going on. We're having a potential renter come on Monday, and so... yeah... lots of cleaning!)

    Yeah, cleaning is good.

    Just relax, keep the humidity up and let it happen [​IMG]
  3. I just went through this, too. All I can say is, wow, will you be relieved when it's over. [​IMG]

    Seriously, it'll be fine. They will hatch exactly when it's good for them and not one second sooner. It's hard, but you have to have faith that Mother Nature will make it happen. Try to do things to keep you busy. Good luck!! [​IMG]

    Good luck, especially with your move. I'm sure your son will have a memory to be envied when this is over.
