    Is it worse when you do it when they're still in the egg? I sing and whistle and peep at the eggs [​IMG]

    I also freak out if they are quiet, I go and stare, make sure I see breathing then wake them up for good measure (on accident of course). I did the same for my 3 boys when they were wee ones:)
