Heard on the radio this morning..

that if you listen to calm music, like jazz, classical, anything more soothing baby will be more relaxed and calm once baby is born. But if you listen to say hard rock, metal, rap, anything really upbeat baby will be more wild, etc. What do you think about this? Any experience with your other children?

With DS, I listened to a variety of music and he seemed ok. But with this pregnancy I definitely listen to a lot calmer music.. so I hope baby is a calm one Smile Although this baby is more active than DS was but that could also be bc with DS I was a little heavier and had lots of fluid and his movements weren't as noticeable.

I have seen a study on this. I don't think it affects baby when they are born, but I do believe it affects them when they are in the womb. I think calming music keeps stress levels down for mom which in turn keeps baby happy. I haven't been listening to much music lately but definitely need to start. DH likes smooth jazz so maybe I'll turn that on more. I know when I sing to DS2 at night, baby kicks me alot! lol

Nidia- This might be a dumb question but did you find out the gender of your baby? I was on vacation and wasn't sure if I missed the announcement or if you were just holding out on us! ;oP

No clue but I will say this.. if that's true, my child will never hold a relationship after a break up because they are "never ever ever get-ting baaack together!"

Like.. ever.

ROFL

Wow! You've known for a whole month!!! So no one knows but you and DH? That's fun! I've thought about opening the eneveope we got with the picture of boy/girl parts and not telling anyone until the birth but I don't think I could keep that kind of secret for long. I had to hide the envelope from myself. DH thinks we should open it.

Adriana, I have a love-hate relationship with that song. I hate the song, but EVERYTIME it comes on the radio, I find myself singing to it. And I might tap my foot. And bang on the steering wheel.

I listen to a lot of country.. I posted about this yesterday in April but, I was singing yesterday and baby was going wild. Probably saying pleeEASE shut up! LOL

haha... If I don't know I would be jealous if anyone else knew! Trust me, DH has already said he won't tell but he can't keep secrets from me. Although, I have no girl stuff so if it was (highly doubt it is) that would be great to have someone know and prepare us for a girl.

See! You need someone to know so you can have SOME girlie stuff if it's a girl hehe. I'm dying with anticipation to find out now, Samantha! I think it's also the fact that you are on team green lol

Well I don't know what your having either so we are even! haha It was weird because the first day I was dying to open that envelope (knew I should of never asked for one) but as the days past it sometimes doesn't even cross my mind very much. I think I am going to buy alittle bit of pink just in case and I definitely don't need any blue!
