During this time, it is best to avoid heavy physical activity altogether. Just wait a few months, and then you can safely train even with a grenade launcher. You should only think about the baby.


Safety gear like ear protection and adequate ventilation should be non-negotiable. If the medical advice permits, you could theoretically find a way to enjoy your hobby in a manner that's safest for both you and the baby.


One primary concern is the loud noise, which might pose a risk of auditory issues for the baby. Another consideration is lead exposure, as many ranges use lead-based ammunition.
