As you know I look after 2 girls fulltime. For the most part they are great and my son has been in states and will be for this month with grandma. I have been having a hard week. Im not huge, but baby sits low and I have exhasting pain throughout the day. Today I felt weak. I ate and felt a little better, but still things are hard. I really would like to continue working, but I am afraid I may have to let them go. I mean my sons not even home to exhast me. Its hard cause I really want to keep trying, but I dont know when enough is enough and I just have to let it be.

With your son coming early I wouldn't push it. Is the money essential to your household? That would be the only issue. I know you would like to make it longer but if your body is telling you to slow down then you should try to listen. Its such a hard decision! I used to run a home daycare for my friends and family. I felt bad when I had to stop but I had too much going on with my own kids that it wasn't worth the added stress.
