My son started kindergarten last week. He was really, really anxious about it and it was a hard transition at first but he's doing well this week.

Today was meet the teacher and I saw she looked VERY pregnant. I chatted with her and she said she was due in early October and would be off until the new year...

Wtf? My son freaks when his babysitters change, this isn't going to go well for him and I'm annoyed that I'll have to get to know a new teacher in October.

I want to talk to the principal. Why did she start teaching for this year when she's only gonna be here a freaking month??

 Because like any woman anywhere they're allowed to have a baby. Maternity leave only lasts so long, silly to expect her to quit for your sons convenience.

Seriously? So a woman isn't allowed to have a life outside of her classroom because your child might be upset?
She has to plan her child birth and pregnancy to coordinate with how YOU want it to be done?
She is going to be on leave in October and back in January.
I don't think you get a say in this.

Because she only gets so many weeks maternity leave. She probably cant take time off before the baby comes.

My seven year old has a hard time with transitions. It's part of who she is and we know it. So we just talk to the whoever it may concern and we all work together.

I think its normal. People get pregnant and take leave. Your kid will adjust.

O.o Heaven forbid your child has a person in his life that passes away unexpectedly, are you going to be pissed then because your son will have to adjust to it?
