I was told that sounds are muffled at about 23 weeks, and then baby can hear clearly around 30. Don't know how much truth to that. I am 24 weeks and I know she can make out my voice, but I am nor sure a dog barking would be clear to her yet....

I am about 24 weeks and last Saturday me and dh took my bros to see the Zorro movie that just came out. The volume was soooo loud!!! I know baby could hear it because it moved through the entire movie and that never happens!!! It was over 2 hours long!!! It would get soft for a while and then something would explode, ect, and the baby would react! It wasn't me reacting 'cause the movie is PG and I was too distracted by baby's reactions! :)

I just read this at amazingpregnancy.com: "Baby is just starting to be aware of sounds outside the uterus, and you may feel baby startle at unexpected noises." I have to believe that is true. I was at a Tennessee Titans football game yesterday, and when the crowd roared as the team ran onto the field, I felt a strong "rolling" sensation in my pelvis. I had felt movement before this, but nothing quite the same. It was VERY loud there, and if the baby can hear at all, I bet the baby heard that crowd!

Woops, I meant to add that the quote from the website said this happens at 19 weeks!

I think they hear way before doctors say they can. Tests show that they jerk in reaction to loud noises as early as 9 weeks after conception. I've also heard other places that they hear at 17 weeks. There are so many conflicting times, that it's hard to pinpoit.
