Loud noises...

I'm 17 weeks from and my husband and I are going shooting today at the local gun range. How will this effect the baby?

It might wake your baby up bit that's about it

I went hunting and target practicing for a lot of my pregnancy and it didn't effect my baby aside from waking him up. I talked to my doc and she said it wasn't a problem.

Let's just say that bullets have lead in them,  and we no longer use lead in paint because it is toxic.

There is nothing to worry about!! I deer hunted with my other pregnancies. And ^^ there are small amounts of lead in bullets! My dad is a gun Smith.. and I hunt every fall pregnant or not!
