“Can you hear a baby while in the womb?”
I am a 28 year old pregnant woman. I am in my third trimester. Can you hear a baby while in the womb?

Not to my knowledge. However, the baby can hear your voice and respond to your voice immediately after delivery.
Dr. LA KESHA LAWRENCE OB-GYN (Obstetrician-Gynecologist) Milwaukee, WI
Yes. During 3rd trimester the baby is large enough that you can hear your baby thru your abdominal wall depending on the thickness of your adipose tissue.

No just movement

Interesting question, but no you can't hear a baby make sounds, I suppose you could hear them move if your ear was on the belly. They don't have the ability to make vocal sounds given there's no air in the womb, they're living in fluid.
