As far as your girlfriend going to the range, people are going to have different opinions. I, personally, went to the range to fire my .22 and my
hubby's .45 during all three of my pregnancies. As I got further along, third trimester, they would jump, kick, and squirm so I backed off for a few
months until they were born. I also noticed that my balance was off and harder for me to steady myself and didn't want to fall when I fired the gun.
This happened when I bowled in my last trimester as well. But with that said, the first and second trimesters, I was fine. None of my kids have
hearing problems or deformations. Well, I say that, but my 15 year old I am sure is going deaf due to the screamo music he listens to at high
decimals through those ear buds, but he also probably has selective hearing like all teenagers and his "lack" of listening isn't due to my target
practice at the range when I was pregnant with him. But as always, you and your girlfriend should always talk to her doctor before engaging in
something you aren't sure about. Better safe than sorry. Again congratulations.
