ok this is a weird question... but I'm honestly at a loss.

I keep hearing off and on for days now (actually I heard it before too, but not this loud) a "pop" noise. and i always think "my water must have broke!" but then nothing... no water. just a loud click/pop noise.

and I'm baffled. what on earth is it? I've never had it before and never heard anyone else mention it...

Maybe it's one of your joints (like cracking your knuckles)? Do you hear it while you are moving or sitting still?

Is it a popping feeling in your pelvis? With both of my pregnancies, I had pretty bad pelvic pain and when I got closer to the end, my pelvis would feel like it popped. It usually happened as I was getting out of bed in the morning.

Its the 2 sacs (the amnion and chorion) rubbing together like 2 pieces of serran wrap. Sometimes you can hear it a lot in a pg, sometimes you never hear it. And FWIW, when my water breaks it sounds the same way. So don't be surprised if one of those times it is your water breaking.

no not my pelvis or anything like that (that's a totally different feel and different place). my hips and pevlis pop ad crack a lot... but it's not that.

it's the top of my stomach right on the highest area... and it's not bone or anthing like that - it's for sur emy uterus b/ I can feel and hear the pop. and feel this tiny snap feel. little... almost like being snapped with a rubberand on the inside - but softer.

I remember experiencing this with my last pregnancy! I was totally stumped, never seemed to have dh actually AROUND when it happened and wondered if I was imagining things. My midwife at the time told me sometimes it's the bag 'catching' and it can make a squishing or popping sound. It was right up around where the base of my ribs met the top of my belly.

I have heard quite a few other mamas talking about this on other forums. No one ever has been able to come up with a conclusion.

Maybe the baby is sucking on something and making a popping sound?

That makes so much sense. I remember when my water broke both times I heard two separate pops.

So that's what that weird noise was yesterday? It had me really puzzled because I had the same thing happen during my previous miscarriage only that time it signaled the *real* start of the M/C.

well if that si the case... that woudl also explain why sometimes it'a a pop/click sound and other times it's a weird rubbing sound. and it's nothing like beig kicked or having baby move around. it's a watery sound if that makes any sense. if you've ever had it then you'd know what I mean. otherwise it probably sounds crazy!

I had this when I was pregnant with my first, and I really think it was my little girl's joints popping! After she was born, sometimes her joints would pop and it would sound EXACTLY like it did in my uterus!

yeah i didnt have it the other 2 kids but i had it with my new baby. it waws when she was moving, too. shed jab a knee or foot outwards and id hear it at the same time. it was REALLY strange. it ounded like a cross between a pop and water swishing around. her making her sacs rub together would make sense....but its strange i didnt hear it the other times especially with the craziness my oldest did when i was pregnant lol

I used to read those threads and wonder what on earth you could be hearing...

UNTIL my last pg when I heard it very often!!! I know exactly what you mean. I picture the sac making a noise like letting go of a stretched balloon? It was always when she was active.

I can say that I loved letting dh hear - it would totally freak him out and he could hear it across the room. LOL So at least have some fun!!!

My best friend heard this type of popping/clicking noises toward the end of her pregnancy. A midwife in the area (not her care provider, just someone we knew) told her that her baby probably had a dislocated shoulder. : It totally freaked my friend out, and the baby's shoulder was not dislocated at birth. The sac explanation makes so much more sense!

Thats a really good question. She's really bad at communicating, and sometimes things that cross her mind come off as fact. I've learned this over the years of knowing her, but at the time it really freaked my friend out. She gave no explanation as to why it would be dislocated, and no other options.

I'm not saying it couldn't happen... I guess. just how? how on earth does a baby dislocate their shoulder inutero? (while birthing, yeah I get that one)

anyhow... I was just wondering if such a thing could actually happen.

i am currently 22 weeks pregnant with twin boys. i heard this weird popping watery sound and felt babies moving around in my belly. it was really weird and scared me. i talked to my midwife but she has no idea what it is. i just found out at 20 weeks i am having twins. i am freaked out because a twin pregnancy is more complicated but also now because of that weird noise. i still feel movement inside and no water or bleeding. i have no idea what it could be.

I had that and never even thought to worry b/c the instant image I had was DD scraping her feet against the sac. I just remember as a kid rubbing balloons on my feet to make static electricity. The rubbing action makes the same sound...

Also sometimes I heard weird blups and the only thing I could think of was water swooshing around.

cool stuff!

I have to confess that I thought this thread was a little... peculiar... until sometime last week - when I heard the same thing! To me it's sounds awfully similar to the noise my knuckles make when they crack. I have been trying to convince myself that it's my own vertebrae cracking really quietly and spontaneously. But, it mostly happens when I am still and the baby is moving...

I have to say that I will be doing an extra careful hip check on the babe when s/he comes out. I wonder too if the person who posted about the "dislocated shoulder" didn't have some miscommunication and what was meant was dislocated hip... which is not all that uncommon. I'm also wondering about knees... my family have spontaneously popping knees...
