Recent research has looked into the idea that unborn babies focus on more than just growing and developing organs during gestation. As it grows bigger, stronger, and cuter with each trimester, your baby is learning a lot about life, its family, and the world it will soon encounter. During the nine months of pregnancy, it is much more than just growing and developing organs. They are doing and thinking far more than we realize, and it’s fascinating to learn what’s going on inside while you feel every kick, jab, and hiccup. Your baby’s senses are developing and fine-tuning as they know as much as they can about their surroundings. In-utero development is far more acute than we previously realized. Here are five amazing things your baby learns while still in the womb.
1. Identifying Mom
After 20 weeks, a fetus can hear and distinguish between different noises. A baby will be most familiar with the voice she hears the most – her mother’s. Mommy is always with the baby, so once the baby learns to distinguish between sounds and begins memorizing the familiar sounds. He will undoubtedly form a bond with his mother, and he will react positively to her both before and after birth. According to stuďïệs on babies during reading times, fetal heartbeats become less hurried as they become more relaxed while listening to the stories narrated by their future mothers. Several stuďïệs have shown that the mother’s voice affects the baby and fosters a bond between the two. And this is how the babies recognize their mother from the moment they are born.
2. Recognizing different languages
Babies in the womb can recognize their mother tongue after birth, not just their mother’s voice. They pay attention to all the voices and noises of the outside world while in the womb, and once they can distinguish between sounds, they begin to adopt the most spoken language as their mother tongue. So, while we are all preparing to welcome a new life into the world, the baby in the womb has already pαssed the milestone of language discrimination.
3. The ability to taste
Have you developed an insatiable craving for marmalade as a result of your pregnancy? If that’s the case, your child will grow up to be a citrus connoisseur. This is due to the nutrients in your food seeping into your amniotic fluid, which the fetus gulps down and can “taste” by 20 weeks. The flavors of certain foods can be detected in your amniotic fluid when you consume them. Garlic, anise, ginger, and sweet flavors have all been shown to change the taste of the amniotic liquid. According to researchers, this is nature’s way of preparing the baby for the flavors of the food he will most likely eat when he enters the world. Your baby will begin to prefer sweet flavors as early as week 15 by swallowing more amniotic fluid when lovely and more petite when it is bitter. And these preferences are often carried over into their adolescence and even into adulthood.
4. Distinguishing between noise and music
Your baby has a strong sense of hearing even before it is born, believe it or not. Yes, it can hear all of the sounds produced by your body’s metabolism, such as the beating of your heart, the gushing of вlσσd throughout your body, the noise of water in your stomach, your voice, and even your hiccups. Not only that, but all of the noises around you, such as television, family members talking, animals making noise, and so on. They begin developing a sense of hearing as soon as they reach 20 weeks of gestation, and by 27 weeks or so, they are reacting to those sounds.
5. Developing the ability to smile
Smiling You’ll find yourself wishing for your baby to smile during the first few weeks of motherhood. After all, while you’re busy changing nappies, feeding, and generally not sleeping, couldn’t they show you a flash of those gums to reαssure you that you’re doing a good job? Not to worry, your developing baby could be practicing his winning smile right now from the comfort of your uterus. Unborn babies begin to understand what is happening around them, and they begin to understand their mother and other family members as they grow through each trimester. Schooling starts before birth, from cuttlefish learning to recognize prey before hatching to birds memorizing “pαsswords” in the egg to bond with their parents.
