Several people at work know that I am preganant
I told three of them: my boss, my close coworker, and the hr person. Evidently other people know too because of overhearing my bosses unsolicited advice about pregnancy, of which he knows nothing about (He has never been a perspective parent and some of it has been blatantly incorrect). None of the ones who I haven't told have asked me about it, but my boss and close coworker have been asked.
Should I just tell everyone since they all might know or not know anyway?
Yes, this is my first DU announcement. I am sort of scared since this is my first pregnancy. Then there is the issue with my husband facing jail/prision time (drug charges). I want to be a mother though.

1. Congrats on your pregnancy!
If it were me, i'd probably just tell the people i'm close with. Everyone else will know in due time, and it's really none of their business if you don't feel like telling them! It is totally your decision, though -- don't make some big announcement just because of your blabbing boss. :)

2. Congratulations!
I hope everything goes for you. Take good care of yourself.

I hope things improve for your husband's situation. If the pregnancy was discovered after the alleged "offense", maybe the judge will consider your spouse's deep motivation? I don't know anything about this sort of thing.

Good luck to the three of you!

3. Thanks
I don't have a lot of time on the library computer. I will try to logon later though.
