Hello, Young Mom, and welcome from Missouri to a really great forum. Good people and info here! You will want to decide what type of weapon to get for self defense. I like to have at least two handguns - a medium to full size for home defense, and a compact handgun for concealed carry. I stick with one caliber - 9mm, because it is easy to get, and relatively inexpensive compared to other calibers, and can be just as effective in stopping a threat. Some folks also like to use shotguns for home defense. If you aren't familiar with different guns, you can visit local gun ranges or gun clubs and rent different weapons to try out.
Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good self defense classes once you choose a weapon for yourself. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free.
Here is a very good technical review of self defense ammo:
