Sleeping awake

Stream of consciousness. Monologues and babies.  Origins.
What do we learn before we are born?  I listen to this TEDtalk by Annie Murphy Paul, and I ruminate a new experience of being.   
We hear things between the walls when we are children but adults use big words, they sound foggy and callus.  We feel things when we are children, like when we know something is wrong with a parent.  When we are babies we are primal with emotion and needs; when we are adults our thoughts and needs consume us, and we are not necessarily as perceptive as when we were children.
 What did my mother think, do and experience when she was pregnant? Suddenly, I want to know.
