So lately Ive been feeling this thing in my tummy.........Ive felt it before but I wasnt sure of what it was.... I finally realized that its my little girl moving. Well, I dont know if shes a girl yet but that what I want. Should I start to play music for her now? Can she even listen yet??? I need to find a good website thats going to tell me what develops when because I dont know anything! so if anyone knows about please let me know.

If the baby can move it can hear music. The baby will probly love if you play music for it. Also you can talk to it. It will get use to your voice even just form you talking to other people. Some baby's will get excited and active over the sound of water as well. You'll start to notice. Also now that baby's moving, as it moves more you'll notice it has sleep habits already. It generally sleep and moves at the same time during the day! I know my little girl continued those when she was first born :)

I have started reading to my baby in the evening when I feel him start to move around. I have noticed that when I read or talk to him he gets more active when I read certain books as apposed to others. I guess he likes animals right now. Funny thing is that when my husband talks to him or puts his hand on my belly, the baby stops since it's not used to his voice just yet. The baby is more active when I read to him then he is when I just talk to him. I sugest getting a children's book or two to read to the baby, consider it your time together.

My daughter absolutely LOVED (and still does) it when my boyfriend and played music and talked to her, it felt like she was doing sumersaults and cartwheels in there! But if you woke her up while she was sleeping, she would kick you once, very hard. To this day she hates to be woken up, and dances to music, now that she can stand!
