I take it congratulations are in order then? Congrats!!

That's about all I have to offer to the discussion though. As a guy of portly stature (or formerly so, as I'm in the thick of a weight loss program....) I've never been graceful with the guitar....

A uke might work will tho :)

Either that, or maybe Ovation make one where the round back goes into the guitar so if fits nicely around the bump.... :P
Congrats, Diane!

I think I'd advise against the Ovation though...it's round back will just lay against your growing stomach, causing a more and more un-natural playing position as your pregnancy progresses - I have a good friend who experienced this very thing.

I would advise the solution she came up with - playing a smaller bodied a/e guitar, combined with a slightly angled stance in relation to the mic stand. BTW, she discovered during this process that an all wood guitar sounds better than one with a plastic back (I share this opinion), and as a result her Ovation got handed down to the youth band.

Good luck!

I've never seen a concave Ovation... that would be a first! Thanks for the congrats - you are correct. We're due early September. Last time I just quit playing for the final couple months... this time I'm leading worship so often not sure i can quit. But there's nothing graceful about playing guitar with a large baby bump... sigh. Guess i'll just have to be humbled :)

I've only played a uke once - on my honeymoon in fiji... with the hotel welcome band. Pretty funny story.
Have you considered just playing lap steel for awhile? : )
Diane, check this out www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAzdvzToVgY I own one of these and I installed a piezo bridge pickup, no volume control, and it sound's quite good plugged into the PA. They are very inexpensive and sound better than most travel guitars I've heard. Hope this helps.
actually my mom plays one and I've always wanted to! Maybe this is incentive to borrow hers :)
Thanks Chris! Just watched... interesting idea.
good day dianne... take great caution not to have the acoustic guitar soundboard touch your body. the vibration may cause underdevelopment of skull in foetus.my sister in law, a Bible school graduate lost her first child. they linked the reason for such abnormality playing guitar while pregnant...
Wow, I've never heard of that....so sorry about your sister in law. I played drums while I was pregnant.....musta been quite a sight....but quit when I got past my 6th month. My baby came out just fine.... a 9 lb boy with a great sense of rhythm! I kid you not! :)
Learning the keyboard is also a good idea. :) Try to carry over the nuances of guitar playing to the keyboard. Congrats on the baby! :)
Drums... now THAT sounds fun!!!
Do tell - funny stories are always good for a giggle :)

Are you leading on your own or with a band? Woudl it work for you to just drop to vox, rather than quitting altogether?
