How did you soothe your baby in the womb?

I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant with my first. I'd like to soothe him, calm him while he's in there. If you played music, what exactly did you play? If you talked to them, what sort of things would you talk about? Books you read? Ect....

How far along were you when you started?

I'd love to hear your stories!

All details & info is helpful :) Thank you lovelies!

Baby is pretty calm when you're calm. During pregnancy soothing yourself is like soothing the baby. They feel what we feel. Did you know that the white noise from all your blood pumping is as loud as a vaccuum cleaner to their little ears? That's why people go SHHHHHHHH when their newborns are fussy, it's not to tell them to be quiet, but to comfort them with a familiar sound. :)

I've been pretty stressed out these days, unfortunately.... So that's why I'm looking for things to calm him every night in bed.

To calm myself I just take bubble baths. Thanks for the interesting facts. Are loud noises from the outside muffled to him?

I sang while I did the dishesor in the shower ect... even before dd had "ears" to hear with. People thought I was nuts but I told them sound is about vibrations even if she can't hear the music she can feel the music. Your entire head and upper body is a giant resonating chamber after all. I also talked to her alot throughout the day about pretty much everything. We would also play a poke game. Whenever she would stretch and stick out body parts I would poke her a little just so it pushed back a bit. Sometimes if I felt a pointy part I would poke her until she either pushed back or moved that pointy little butt back into the stomach where it belonged lol

I talked to her a lot. Whenever I would walk around she would go to sleep. We played all kinds of music while I was pregnant, even went to a Toby Keith concert, I wouldn't consider it soothing music, lol! Dh went through a second childhood or something while I was pregnant with her. He put a system in his car, and played hip hop and rap. I always made him turn it off when I was in there because dd would go crazy. I assumed it was bothering her. But since before she could crawl, she gets down whenever you play anything from those music genres!

Probably, but even if they're not muffled that much remember that what he's going through is all new to him. He won't feel scared by a loud noise unless YOU do. He doesn't know to be scared. And if it's a loud noise that happens a lot in your house (like maybe a toddler screaming or you're a loud talker or something) he'll be used to it. My friend has a toddler and is a loud talker and her new baby sleeps like a rock through all noises because she's just used to it. I do know that babies who hear male voices, especially their father's voice, while in the womb are more comfortable around males after birth. They're already used to female voices because of their mother being right there all the time.
