Did any of you be a babysitter and wanted another child of your own and then having to tell the parents you babysit for that your expecting. Was the news taken well, did they stay with you? How long did you stay off. Thank you for any advice

You have to plan your family and what is best for your family first. I have had two children while doing day care. For both I took off 3 months. I knew that for me, the baby, and my family I needed that time. First to heal, second to adjust and get into a routine, third to bond as a family, and fourth to protect my newborn from all the germs that come with doing day care. Both of my kids were born in May, so I ended up taking the summer off. This made it easy for some families to use high school and college kids for care while I was off. Some families did find another in home day care and decided to stay there instead of having their child transition again (totally understandable).
