Hello, In need of some advice/guidance...... basically I don't know what is wrong with me! After rounds and rounds of fertility treatment, miscarriages and heartache I am finally twelve weeks pregnant. I'm so happy but already am worrying about work. I'm in a secondary school and have a KS5 timetable as do other members of my dept. The school are advertising for my maternity cover, but I'm feel a bit 'lost' and 'shut out' for some reason. I'm intending to be off from mid October to mid April and then return full time and school are thinking of getting someone in for the year. The thing is, and I know this sounds daft, but when I return I want my job and my classes back! If school want to keep the cover person on then that's obviously up to them but I'm just feeling like a bit of a spare part and I've not even had the baby yet. I just have this vision of me hanging about doing cover and suchlike whilst someone else carries on with 'my' job. I am a bit of a control freak and suspect some of this comes from that but it is leaving me feeling all unsettled Please help!
