Question

baby hearing outside sounds

At how many weeks pregnant can baby start hearing outside sounds? Like sister sceaming of excitement. (Standing directly next to my belly)
I am 16 weeks.... I think its too early, but it felt as if baby was responding.... perhaps because it was really loud?

This is a tricky question but it is thought that the fetus can hear things outside the womb somewhere between 19 and 24 weeks.
