    Oh my goodness I feel like my heart is going to beat right out of my chest. I have 3 Pips and another egg moved!! It was actually moving!! OMG I am so excited. I hope they live - I really didnt think they were gonna make it - this is my first try -

    My heart really feels like it is going to pound right out of my chest!

    I took the eggs out of the auto egg turner but they rolled around - the first few so I got paper towels and put on the wire and put them on that - then read the geneseis 1588 and it said to add water to raise the humidity . so I did a little bit - OMG I am so excited - I hope I did not put too much water - It didnt say how much water - Oh my -- I hope I am doing everthing right

    I am so excited I cant even type. Everyone in my house is asleep - no one to tell - I want to wake everyone up!
