I'm 17 weeks now what can i do for the growing baby inside me? are there any thing i should do during these days?

C'mon people.  Are there any STUDIES that indicate ANY long-term improvement due to any sort of "stimulation" done in utero (reading, music)?  The baby can't hear much from outside, and it is months before the baby, especially by seeing your mouth move, can even so much as distinguish individual words in the stream of your native language.

Sorry Daddude, I misunderstood this quote I guess.

I honestly think that the best thing you can do for a fetus is TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

Take a walk everyday. Drink extra water, cut out junk food. Eat right, but try not to over eat.

Do some things that relax you, learn something new, like drawing, solve crosswords.
Take time to relax. read a book (for yourself) and have something fun playing in the background constantly.

Take high quality prenatal vitamins and begin to prep your materials for when baby gets here, you may not have enough time once s/he arrives.

Get a massage, rub your stomach and laugh a lot. smile. Best of luck and a bright future for you and your baby.

Sorry Daddude, I misunderstood this quote I guess.
I've discovered, to my consternation, that most people cannot distinguish honest criticism and skepticism from denial.  In other words, if somebody says X, and I say, "I'm skeptical; prove X, please," then most people will assume that I believe not-X.  But that isn't necessarily the case.  I might not have made up my mind about X.  Generally, when I believe not-X, I assert not-X.  Less abstractly: the fact that I am skeptical that fetal stimulation has any salutary effects does not mean that I believe it has no salutary effects.  I might be, as I am, just completely ignorant on the subject.

Yay Daddude, then let me try convince you big grin

When I was pregnant, I used to play my baby an american CD of ABC's and 123's. I couldn't find it after she was born, and so eventually I went and bought another copy (by then she was about 4 months old). One day, she was playing and hurt herself and started to cry. So I played the CD and started signing the song. She immediately stopped crying looked at me with absolute amazement and started smiling. She is not a very affectionate child, and she came towards me and rested on my chest.

Maybe it was just a co-incidence, but I think she may have recognised the song.

Scientifically, the vibrations of the music and vibrations from the songs would surely be felt by the foetus? Albeit that they are surrounded by so much amniotic fluid.

There has been some testamonies from people when doing regression and hypnosis of experiences in their mom's wombs, but that's something which I don't know much about.

Anyhoo, not much proof at this stage but Ill keep believing anyway.

Well, I don't doubt so much that babies can remember things they experienced in the womb; my doubt is whether such things have much educational value.  I mean, they're very nice and beautiful and lovey-dovey and all that, but that's different from saying they're educational.

music is good if you can afford it try B+.
Take O3, flaxseed if you can, otherwise fresh salmon only after 5mth
Folic acid via dark greens can help have a nice flock of hair
walking and stroking your belly towards 3T
avoid caffein, smoke etc
reading, music helps a peaceful state of mind,
stress is good, it releases certain chemicals that trains the fetus and they would be better able to adapt to stress, but not over stress or frightening type of experience, simple stress of keeping time, housework routine, within dateline etc... ( yes i know its different from others advice, but i did read an article on stress on fetuses some years ago, and they said some stress is good but not too much)

The best thing to do for your fetus education-wise is to start preparing for when he / she is born ! ;D And i mean really preparing everything, the flashcards, videos, reading materials, gym stuff, schedules, to do lists etc....etc.... because you'll definitely have less time to do that once she / he is here! So don't waste a minute and prepare & organise as much material as you can smile  yes

If you believe in early education why not education in utero? Is the brain so suddenly different at one month after birth to one month before? Or is that you believe consciousness starts at birth? I'm not sure I understand the reason for the skepticism.

Great book I read while pregnant - Early Intelligence - can't find it at the moment to tell you the author. Any way full description of brain development from conception to five years.

The brain is forming in utero, babies get their first taste of food in utero and what a woman eats in last term is known to affect children's taste in food.

Well before the end of the pregnancy the baby's hearing is developed and they are capable of hearing. This is why they are able to recognise their mother's voice and often their father's when he spoke into the belly. This is learning in utero. Why not try to teach other things as well. We have the ability to give a child more experiences in utero while the brain is developing thus aiding the connections that will form.

While pregnant I continued acrobatic training, I continued working in the band and I continued karate and did my grading while 8 months pregnant.

Did my son learn to be an acrobat, play an instrument or block a punch? No but he has, and always has had, unnaturally good balance, an exceptional sense of direction, his musical abilities and potential are outstanding, he came into the world awake and yearning to learn. I wish I had done more for him now had I been more aware of the potential I truly believe I could have taught him and heightened his learning potential in many areas. It is a regret.

I sang and danced and had special gym classes (until 8th month) during pregnancy. I talked to him, and touched the belly as much as I could. We played "math time" using kicks: we beated the belly once, he answered once; we beated twice, he kicked twice with his little feet; and if we tried a complicated beat... well... once he surprised us by imitating all of it!

After birth, from the moment he started his baby talk it always sounded like he was singing it, not talking! smile Even at this age he does the same: he repeats new words or the one he likes in a singing manner, lowering and raising tone while pronouncing. He's so funny! Also, he likes numbers, just counting out loud, and likes to play "the beat game". Does it have a connection with what I did during pregnancy? I think so, but it doesn't matter anyway.
