    Mrs. Soldier here,

    My question is how do you carry while pregnant? Especially in the 2nd or 3rd trimesters? I carry on my belt, but was wondering how to do this while pregnant. I don't carry a purse, so that is not an option. Any suggestions?

    :yawn: I'm not awake yet.

    I'm 18 weeks and have been carrying a KelTec P32 in a pocket holster since I "grew" out of normal jeans. I miss carrying my G26 IWB but 8 rds of .32 is better than nothing at all.

    Can't really see anyway to carry a regular carry size pistol in maternity clothes since they're built to be stretchy and comfy, not hold up over a pound of gun.

    Good luck finding a combination that works for you. You're not the only one trying to find a way to not go unarmed.

    Mrs. Soldier here again,

    Thanks for the reply. We've been knocking this around in our heads too. My husband said maybe a shoulder holster, but I guess I'm going to have to wait and see. I like your idea of a smaller gun (hey, it is better than no gun in my mind). Maybe we'll go that route also. I have a 642 S&W that could fit the bill. By the way, congratulations!

    HOW????? My fatty pants don't have pockets that deep. What brand pants/jeans are you buying?

    BTW I carry in my purse.

    Ankle holster. ;)

    (Mrs. ST found a purse, fanny pack, and the pocket of an outer cover garment to work best.)
