Baby's not responding to sound or music when in the womb but ok now ?


Hi all, Becky is in her 34th week now but it kind of bothers me that the bump doesn't respond to sound or music when everyone else who seems to have had a baby says 'Oh yeah, mine always jumped at loud noises/tv/radio' etc.

Just wondering if anyone else's bump was the same but now he/she is born, is absolutely fine ?

It is so loud in there anyway that you'd need a seriosly loud noise to make baby jump. My two never seemed to respond to sounds when I was pregnant either,but they're both absolutely fine! x

ditto...my LO was very sporadic with her movements and never kicked to familiar or loud noises yet now she's out in the world she's been completely alert and into everything from day one!

My LO never responded to music. I tried playing it to him in the womb, but no response at all. I was a bit worried. No problems now, he passed his hearing test and responds to all noises now.

We were exactly the same. I played music in the womb with no response, I also have 2 dogs who would bark and nothing from her. Everything is absolutely fine outside the womb so please don't worry. I sometimes wonder if when people play music etc to baby and they kick, is it not that they were always going to kick at that point anyway but the mum's just assume it was because of the music?

I never noticed a response to anything particular - he just seemed to kick when he felt like it! He is 100% healthy and alert.

I used to worry about this - sometimes he'd kick when I played music but often he didn't. and I remember when I was late on, somewhere after 35 weeks anyway, walking down the street and an ambulance went past with its siren absolutely blaring and there wasn't so much as a twitch - that I could feel anyway.

then he had his hearing tests at 1 day old and failed on one side, and I worried some more. further tests were arranged and in the few days before I observed his reactions a lot, to sudden sharp noises, etc, like the sound of a spoon dropping into a bowl right next to him but out of his line of vision, and again he didn't respond.

but he passed his further tests and all is fine. he probably had amniotic fluid in his ears at the 1-day test. he is just a laid-back baby and the fact that he doesn't always respond isn't indicative of a problem with his hearing.
