Woo! I'm 17 weeks today!! Updates on progression I've been reading have said for a couple weeks now that baby's ears are pretty developed and s/he could probably start hearing me and stuff now. These updates make suggestions like singing, talking, reading to baby. That's great and all, but what if you're a very quiet person in general??

I'm very quiet. I don't talk a lot as it is. I used to sing more, but I just don't seem to have the opportunity much any more. And reading to baby? That sounds really beautiful but I'm pretty sure DH would think I'm insane.. not that that would matter if I really wanted to do it, but right now it seems like I have enough going on, I don't know if I'd ever find time.

So now I'm worried.. could me being pretty quiet and barely talking to my belly be a BAD thing? It's not that I'm not thinking about little one.. In fact, I think-talk to baby all the time.. I just don't feel like saying what I'm thinking out loud.. especially when most of my life is spent at work, so that just wouldn't be appropriate.

Any other quiet mommies out there who aren't talking/didn't talk much to their baby in womb? I'm hoping I'll start doing it more later on, but right now I just feel awkward.. I guess it doesn't help that I'm not showing or feeling anything yet.
