As an expectant mother, you may use your greatest imagination, but it is practically hard to acquire a clear picture of life in the first house we all have. Humans often desire the same comfort and protection as in their mothers’ wombs. You wonder what the baby is doing in there sometimes. What happens if they get bored? What do they see/hear? Dream, laugh, cry? Does your baby understand you? Many queries.
You worry about your baby’s comfort and health in your uterus. Well, research throughout the years have given us a virtually precise image of a baby in the womb. Surprisingly, they experience plenty. They don’t create organs every day since development takes time. Your baby’s uterus experiences include:
Your infant is brand-new. Their world is new. While awake, they start moving and realize they can move in coordination if they move everything at once.
They appreciate their surroundings and the uterus. They grip items to interact with their surroundings, the uterus. They may discover that kicking the uterine walls severely causes leaping.
It’s a letdown, but it’s true. They sleep most of the time in there. When they wake up, they evaluate what’s happening, stretch out, and kick about before falling asleep again.
32-week-old babies sleep 90–95% of the time in the womb. Your sleeping infant is probably kicking you. Now you know how infants sleep all day.
Sound perception begins early in babies. They may detect uterine noises at 27 weeks and respond to them. They may hear sounds outside the uterus after a few weeks.
If you converse near the womb, your kid learns to know your heartbeat and your spouse. They will also identify music and other environmental noises. Play music, tell stories, and get them used to your voice to calm them outside.
They like sightseeing.
Your unborn child can appreciate your dark, closed uterus. After long, undisturbed sleeps, the baby opens its eyes and looks about. Even when hearing is well developed, the eyes do not open early in pregnancy.
The newborn opens its eyes in the seventh month after having completely grown eyes in the fourth month. Since everything is new and weird, they may not receive HD views. The umbilical cord, uterine wall, and limbs are visible. Through amniotic fluid, they see light entering the womb.
Laugh and Cry
Science has shown that newborns may communicate feelings before they meet the outside world. Doctors can see them scratching their faces to seem upset or smiling. Our best opinion is that they are rehearsing emotions for survival when the baby comes out.
Your kid may hiccup in your womb. Little jolts may not feel like kicks. It’s weird, but it’s typical for your kid to have hiccups even in the womb.
They get all their nourishment from the amniotic fluid, so why are they consuming your food? According to research, the amniotic fluid is intensely flavored and growing babies can taste it. Your baby may taste bitter, sour, sweet, and other flavors by the third trimester. They don’t nourish your baby. Prenatal research shows that newborns establish dietary preferences. Their faces show if they like what they’re eating. This influences their subsequent food preferences.
They’re Outdoor Babies.
We learn life skills early on thanks to thousands of years of genetic memory. This is evident when you see newborns in the womb. They’re self-taught and accomplish everything instinctively. Pure instincts prepare your youngster. Little thumbs are in their mouths. The instinct for sucking on the thumb has not yet evolved, thus this is just a normal infant activity. Their small hands start grabbing objects. They squirm to find comfortable postures as they grow.
They don’t breathe in the womb, like many other things they seem to do. Because their lungs aren’t established till late in the uterus. Lungs grow last since they are not needed during pregnancy.
Your infant does not need to actively breathe because they receive all the oxygen they require through the umbilical cord. However, they cannot rest for too long because this is one of the most crucial things they must do to survive after birth. As a result, infants can be observed as early as nine weeks of pregnancy opening their mouths and ingesting amniotic fluid in an attempt to breathe.
Babies are incredibly intriguing creatures who do small things that fascinate us to no end. Perhaps it’s because we believe we’ve all done the same things, but there’s no way to tell. You can enhance the experience of your unborn child by connecting with them in as many ways as possible. Speak to them, sing to them, and let the sound of your voice comfort them.
