The first time is always the toughest. The next ones aren't as bad although it's never easy waiting.

After the first week you just kind of get in an egg turning rhythm and don't notice the days going by. Until about day 16 when you start stressing over day 18 when you have to stop turning them and raise humidity. Then there's day 18-21 where you think they've died the whole time and finally get relieved they've pipped on day 21 only to stress that they've died again cause they don't finish hatching for another day....
