Daughter suffering as Mum & Dad split...

My little girl is nearly five. My partner and I are splitting after 7 years - all very amicably but I have been living away from the family home for the last 4 weeks staying with friends of the family. I tend to pop home to put her to bed two or three nights a week and she stays with me at the weekend. Naturally, she has started asking when I will be coming home to stay and gets upset when I can't give her a proper answer. She is generally a bright wee thing but of late she has been having 'accidents' at nursey where she has wet herself and she never does that. Her general behaviour has altered slightly as well - I would be interested to see if others have been through a similar situation themselves ? Is this behaviour 'normal' ? Any advice ?

Many thanks
