    Ok so in the past 24 hours I have gotten like 3 or 4 hours of sleep so I may have done something soo stupid this morning. Last night when I went to bed hopeing to get some sleep (yeah right that little lonely button was up most the night and so was I ) the incubator was at like 97.7 so instead of messing with the knob when I woudnt be up to watch it I coverd it with a light baby blanket , well this morning when I got up to give someone there chicks at 5:30am [​IMG] the bator was at 97.9 I went to bed for another hour to try to get a few more minutes sleep befor my son woke me up , when I got up again at about 7am it was still at 97.9 so I bumped the knob up a bit and it was up at 98.8 when I left at about 10am but now Im scared did I bump it up the second time I got up or the third , is it gonna contenue to climb and spike up to 104 while Im gone for the next 7 hours or so I feel like walking the 5 miles to my house befor my kids get home that I baby sit but I know with my back and neck all tweeky I would never make it there and back in time.

    If you're on day 20 I'd leave it right where it is. You
    know if you mess with the knob it'll shoot up to 102 or
    something........
