Lead is most readily absorbed by inhalation; most common culprit is coal burning power plants and metals refining facilities (which also put cadmium, nickle and mercury into the air)
Simply handling lead is not a problem. Wash your hands, problem solved.
If you wish to carry, by all means do. Remember your gravid appearance marks you as a "soft target" and street rats today have no respect for the ill, the aged, the infirm, the elderly ... or the pregnant.
My comments, again, are based on too many years' experience in both public health and law enforcement.

My wife also carried in her purse during pregnancy, after pregnancy she switched to using the diaper bag for carry more often, as said before , no one want's to steal a "loaded" diaper bag. Congradulations by the way. Best of luck, our little one is five months old now, they really do change your world, and it's so worth it.
I agree that it is always wise to carry the most potent handgun that you can. However, if you need the smallest and lightest then the KT P3AT comes to mind, along with the new Ruger "clone."
I have never used the clip with my KT, but I have a friend who does, and that might be an option. One might find it uncomfortable.
Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!
Keep the gun clean after it is used....use FMJ only, and only use it if in need, better to have it and not need to use it than not have it and wish you had it.
A few bullets to save your life and your baby are probably better than not having them.
