    You could do what I do....surf BYC and Ebay for more eggs to replace these ones that are hatching and keep yourself in a constant neurotic state!!! lol [​IMG]

    That's too funny - I'm sufferinf from incubation paranoia too...

    Want to know what my hubby said to keep my mind off the eggs in the incubator - put one between your boobs and focas on hatching that!!! [​IMG]

    Considering I'm boob feeding atm it isn't practical BUT when I'm through I'm planning on giving it a go!!!! [​IMG]

    Good luck!!!

    I'm day 19 and beside myself...
