This week, Baby Cupcake is going through a process called ossification - hardening of bones. Bones in the legs and inner ears are among the first to ossify. With the bones in the inner ear developed to function and the nerve endings from the baby's brain is 'hooked up' to the ears, Baby Cupcake can hear sounds now!
I guess for a start, he is hearing my heart beating or my stomach rumbling! And he can hear the baby music which I played for him all these time!
Being first-time mommy, I am always amazed by the baby's developments inside me. Apart from the pregnancy guide I bought - Mayo Clinic: Guide To A Healthy Pregnancy - I got this prenatal set (http://www.livingincomfort.com/unfidegisetf.html)recently which allow us to listen, talk and play music to the unborn!
- Battery Operated (batteries are excluded)
- Listen, talk and play music to your unborn baby
- Fetal Monitor, Headphone, Fetal Microphone, Fetal Speaker & Recording Cable Included
- Portable, Lightweight and easy to use
"Play music because you enjoy it, not because you're trying to make your unborn baby smarter. Music can help you relax, fall asleep, or perk you up if you have the pregnancy blahs. "When a woman relaxes, that's good for the fetus and that's an indirect effect of music on the fetus," says DiPietro." - extracted from http://www.babycenter.com/refcap/pregnancy/fetaldevelopment/6547.html
