On second day of full upper and having the normal eating probs I have read and heard of. Besides my tongue dancing and seeming to yell "ok where do I go where do I go theres no room in here!!", my problem is "rocking"... seems as I chew the denture shifts and rocks side to side. An extremely odd sensation. Is this normal ,a bad fit or will it stop when all settles in?

I work for Fixodent, and I understand the challenges of eating when you first get dentures. As you’ve already experienced, biting and chewing feel much different than before. Start with soft foods, such as eggs, fish, chopped meat, cooked vegetables, and pudding. You can ease back into eating the foods you love by cutting them into smaller pieces. Also, chew half of your food on the back left side of your mouth and the other half on the back right side of your mouth. This will help even out the pressure on your upper denture. And as previously suggested, it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Hang in there! With time and practice, you’ll be back to eating your favorite foods.
I’d like to send you a little something by mail. At your convenience, please send an email with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! ^Karen

Although it's a little too soon to tell (especially, if you have stitches), you should discuss the rocking with your dentist. A soft reline might help.
