    Just had our last ultra sounds, unless there are complications, and talked with the doctor.

    Noise will not affect the fetus at any point in development. Recommended shooting in a well ventilated area and to wash your entire body asap.

    So basically what jcreek and rotor said.

    I hope things continue to go well, and that everyone remains healthy, and happy.

    Many thanks for the update regarding potential harm to the fetus. Yours is the first feedback from any doctor that I've personally heard about.

    I hope that there are the proper number of fingers and toes, and that the constitution is the baby's first bedtime story! (you know initially it's the sound of your voice rather than what you say...)

    Our local range does not allow pregnant or nursing women on the range.

    I could understand nursing with no confident way of guarding the babies ears...but why pregnant? Seems rather discriminatory. I'm all for private property rights, but I still don't understand some of the illogical, or rather uninformed, reasons to discriminate.

    I need to echo something I said previously that I notice isn't being said when recommending washing thoroughly. When washing with warm or hot water, your pores are opened and the lead actually can be absorbed more easily. When washing after being at the range you should use cold water only. Yes, not very pleasant but it keeps the pores closed and the lead is more easily washed off of you.

    I can understand a range not wanting to be responsible for babies getting unintentional poisoning b/c mom breathed in the airborne lead on the range and excreted it in breast milk. Another reason for banning nursing moms is that the airborne lead penetrates all layers of clothing. Unless Mom is diligent about washing EVERYTHING after going to the range, taking a shower and washing hair, the child may become contaminated. They don't want that kind of liability.

    Um... I think it has to do with possible lead transferrence from mom to baby. I doubt many nursing mothers would choose to do so on the firing line.

    From what I got at the doctors, granted its only a doctor's medical opinion, the risk is so minute if one were to wash as soon as possible, even a developing fetus wouldn't have problems. I see the possibility...but it's also possible for a ricochet to hit the baby too...to me it seems to be an overreaction.

    Yeah, if I was shooting when my son was that age, I would be doing so while he was at daycare. A good cold shower afterwards and should be good to go. If you really want to be safe, pump & dump before feeding.
