"A study in Ireland, using ultrasound observation and measured pulses of sound revealed that babies with normal hearing start moving in reaction to sound around 16 weeks gestational age. This was earlier than previous estimates and occurs about two months before completion of the ear, suggesting that there is more to hearing than the ear alone. Babies seem especially interested in parental voices and begin learning the mother's native language (the mother tongue) while in the womb." From http://www.birthpsychology.com/lifebefore/early3.html
Although I'm only 13 weeks along, I've started talking to the baby already.
its actually 15 to 16 weeks they can hear, actually just asked the doctor, but i know they can still feel the vibrations before hand.
Quoting .chele.:" I just found this on a pregnancy web site... By 20 weeks your baby will have grown to 1 pound or 454g and though still small and fragile she can hear and recognize her mother's voice."
