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. My dear Nikia...
I would say go ahead and announce it...

As long as you're past say 10 weeks or so...

The danger of miscarriage is much less by then...

I am so sorry to hear about your husband. That has to be tough...

Good luck with everything!

:hug:

6. Please don't be so xenophobic...
It's pronounced Preganant in Stereotypical-Italian-American. :)

9. Congrats Nikia!
In addition to what CalPeg said, make the choice to tell the others when you feel ready. Hell, if there are rumors floating around about it, it's GOOD gossip after all.

I hope things work out for the best with your husband.
