I talk to kiddo all the time, I am 32 weeks along.  Darling Husband talks to him also and kisses the belly also.  I also rub and pat the belly to. I have read studies that babies can better distingish their parents voices with talking to them while in utero.

When I was pregnant with my 1st I did it all the time, especially while making food, “oh utero ninja, doesn’t lasagna sound delicious?” haha. People probably thought I was crazy. oh well. πŸ™‚

I do, but mostly when I feel really sick or I start feeling uncomfortable for one reason or another.  If I’m on a particularly bad round of puking, I’ll tell the baby to settle down or something equivalent.  I’m more likely to pat and rub my belly than to talk to it on a normal day.

I did, but I don’t think there’s a “one size fits all” for being a mom.  The baby hears you talking to others and hears noise from around you, so she’s already hearing you.  You’re going to get a lot of advice along the way, and you’ll have to filter it through your own instincts and comfort level.  Once she’s born, though, reading to her is really, really important… and that won’t feel weird at all!  πŸ™‚

I’m not pregnant yet, but considering how much I already talk to my dog and talk to myself, I’m sure I’ll talk to my (future) children in my pregnant belly!

I’m not pregnant, but I talk to everything, so I’m pretty sure when Darling Husband and I do have kids, they’re going to be sick of my voice by the time they come into the world.

I’m only 8weeks and 3 days and we both already talk to the baby. πŸ™‚

I just talk to it normal, good morning, good night, mommy loves you. Quit making me nauseous!

My hubby saids hi to each time I come home, good night and good morning and kisses too! I think it’s sweet. πŸ™‚


You’re going to get a lot of advice along the way, and you’ll have to filter it through your own instincts and comfort level.

Agreed. πŸ™‚

I didn’t. I felt weird doing it, and I figured she would know my voice anyway b/c I talked to other people.

I don’t yet, but I am only 7 weeks 5 days, and I know that the baby doesn’t have developed hearing yet (I am a scientific person). I won’t probably talk to the baby until I know it has started developing hearing, because I feel kind of silly, because right now I *know* it can’t hear me! I also haven’t started the belly pat, because baby is still in my pelvis, and patting my pelvis would just feel pervy and wierd, I might start the belly pat once I am past my first trimester and the uterus makes its way into the abdomen.

I talk to him in the car all the time – “can’t wait for nachos, at the game tonight, right buddy?!?” <insert belly rub>

@Mrs.KMM: i had the exact same answer as you– i’m not pregnant, but given how much i talk to the dog i’m sure i’ll be talking to my belly. i even catch myself talking to like, birds and squirrels (i’m not exaggerating–the other day i caught myself saying “hello little friend, i don’t have anything for you” while i was reading a book outside to a sparrow who was hoping i had food crumbs). and this is in nyc, where there are always people around. people must think i’m nuts!

Most of my comments lately at 34 weeks are…

“Can you plase move so Mommy can be comfortable” or “Will you please stop kicking the bladder, I was already aware it needed to be emptied BEFORE you started kicking it” or “If your brother makes it through this weekend it wil lbe a miracle and you better not pull the same stunt!” lol

And yes Darling Husband talks to him often as well. Whether I am awake and aware of it or not. We work differnet shifts so only see each other on weekends really. Darling Husband also LOVES to rile him up by playing drums on my belly and watching him hit back in response.
