From inside?: We know the basic structures are formed by 12 weeks, but are not sure when they can actually process the sounds like you do to consider it hearing.

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least. Very nervous?
Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around. The hiccups are unrelated.

This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts. C-section is often needed. ...Read more

End of 1st trimester: The unborn fetus begins to accumulate meconium beginning at 12-16 weeks gestation until birth. The unborn baby does not normally excrete meconium stools while in the womb. Such passage is often a signal of fetal distress. Meconium is formed from swallowed amnionic fluid, intestinal secretions such as bile, & cellular debris. It can continue to accumulate throughout fetal development. ...Read more
I am pregnant 4 months, I would like to know if at any point the baby sleeps and wakes up in the womb. Or are they unconscious all way long?
Variable activity: The 12-16 wk old baby goes thru random periods of movement & perception that what u might consider being awake. Their nervous system sends out random messages that contract muscles- give you a kick & they have periods when they can hear & process music & sound.

It’s never too early to start talking to your baby, either way it is a great bonding opportunity. ...Read more
