Well, I posted a month ago that we found out we're pregnant with baby#3 that we were told we couldn't have without IVF. For the last 3 weeks, I have been really sick/nauseated, went to the hospital and was diagnosed with Hypermesis and dehydration, and I've lost 11 pounds. Not sure if/when I'll start feeling any better. With my second pregnancy, I didn't feel better until I was around 5 months. Originally, I had planned to close the first week in June, when my daughter goes on Summer break. But with being sick 24/7, I can barely take care of myself and my family let alone the daycare kids. I'm giving a verbal 4 week notice to my parents today that I'll be closing March 16th. I've enjoyed this forum and learned a lot from you guys. Thanks and I'll see you all in 2013 if I decide to re-open when my 2nd child goes to Kindergarten!

Hope all goes well for you! Especially hope you start feeling better soon! Best wishes and good luck in everything you have ahead of you!

I think you are making the right decision. Nothing is more important than health. I would let the parents know that they can leave sooner if the new daycare wants them to start immediately.

Best of luck to you! I have been exactly where you are, and am just now getting to feel more human again (I'm 11 weeks). When are you due again?

Luckily I just have one infant right now, so it hasn't been too stressful.

Enjoy this time - it sounds like you need the rest. Hope you feel better soon.
