How far along before the baby can hear?

i get conflicting answers everywhere. i know that the baby can feel everything that i feel, but can feel vibrations from sounds, but at what point can the baby actually hear noises, sounds, and music outside of my belly (before birth)? i'm 14 weeks now.

  • 18-20 weeks they start to hear sounds. But there is some variance due to developmental differences.
