Asleep and Awake. From early on in your pregnancy, your baby is more like a newborn than you might think. Some scientists even believe that fetuses dream while they’re sleeping! Just like babies after birth, they probably dream about what they know — the sensations they feel in the womb.
How does a baby poop in the womb?
Babies generally do not poop in the womb, given that their digestive systems are not used to process much outside of this swallowed urine. They do accumulate a small amount of fetal poop known as meconium that consists of dead cells, waste, etc, that is pooped out within the first few days of life.
