Baby's hearing

My wife is about 32 weeks pregnant and we have a 4 year old. Our 4 year old loves to talk to the baby but he presses his mouth directly in my wife's stomach and screams to do it. Is this going to harm the baby's hearing?

No, the womb is a brilliant sound barrier for the baby. My 7 year old is very loud around my bump too!

My bf likes to blow raspberries on my belly, like his way of talking to her. I thought it might be affecting the baby somehow. I started my NST's last week and the nurse said if the baby doesn't move they "shock" my belly with a lil vibratory which is essentially blowing raspberries on my belly lol. Like Polly said, the womb is amazing.
