How many months into a pregnancy does a human fetus first gains self-consciousness?

  1. A fetus never knows that it is alive. That is, Know that it knows.
    Self-awareness–aware that one is aware– comes in childhood, sometime after the beginning of speech. Age 3 or so.

  2. Actually, a baby doesn’t gain self-consciousness until something like 5 or 6 months old. I saw something about that on Discover channel. Perhaps you mean a different term?
    According to Jewish tradition, a fetus does not have a soul until 5 months pregnancy. Who knows. Anybody’s guess.
