Does anyone play their baby music, and for how long per day? And when did you start? Do you also read them stories? I'm 17+4 and I'm thinking about getting a pair of old headphones to start playing music.

i think you singing to your little one is even more special than just music. certainly will help later on when he recognizes your voice out of the womb. so i would totally say keep that up!
do talk to your little one, no matter how early on you are. its a wonderful way to bond with your little one and create a relationship with him or her. also helps for after birth when you are doing stuff. i always talked to my little boy, told him what i was doing and why, kinda like you're on a cooking show and telling baby what is happening. its great to help build that relationship and great for teaching your child the language. plus, kids like to know what is happening and what will happen next. so it sets you up for years to come.
i played music but never used headphones. i don't think you need to 'baby' the music for them to catch the beat. my three year old loves rage against the machine (he got that from his dad) but he was listening to that kind of music from the womb and it comforts him. we did get some baby einstein music as gifts and he didn't care for it. plus, kids are smarter than we think and can certainly handle more complex music.
reading books is also great but don't think you have to be stuck on kiddie books (trust me you will tire of them when baby is here) you can read magazines out loud and even your romance novels! stop here and there and converse with baby. for example " did you hear that angel, what a bad man!! " also feel free to do voices and add tones. (at this point you're thinking i should just watch a soap opera) but its great to get that practice in cause you will be doing that for baby books soon!
enjoy and have fun. Baby certainly can hear you and feel you (blood pressure too!)

My husband and I are both musicians. It's how we met and I will continue playing as long as I can and will enjoy listening to my hubby after that. We are part of a community band.  Ladies, don't forget many of your towns have community bands with free concerts. Look them up and enjoy the music with your little ones.
