Nervous is expected P-Rat. Just don't worry. It seems very complicated, but it's only as complicated as you make it.
John's give some good advice in the post below, and he certainly has a lot more experience than I do in terms of quantity hatched. I don't candle eggs myself, and as he suggests, I keep handling, movement, etc., down to a minimum.
Not every egg is a marshmallow white. Some of my E. Chain Kings eggs are yellow tinted, but they still produce nice looking babies.
Just follow the guidelines people have outlined, and you're good to go. Don't panic, man. It's notlike you have to sit on them. The worst part now is the wait. Seventy days can be a long time.....
