Ok, this is really weird...I asked my midwife and she just shrugged and said "There's a lot of mystery associated with this event" and said that possibly it was my pelvis opening up. But I don't think so.<br><br>
Basically, i hear a click/pop in my abdomen about 3-4 times a day, always when the baby is moving around. it sounds like when you have silly putty and you fold it over and make a bubble and pop it--that kind of "click". That's the best way i can describe it. It seems too high up to be my pelvic bones. I cannot think of ANYTHING that could cause this. It doesn't sound like gas bubbles (like gurgling). I didn't have this in my last pg.<br><br>
I know its a long-shot, but has anyone ever heard of anything like this? Its so loud that you can hear it from across the room. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> Is it possible to hear ANYTHING from within the uterus? Such as a baby's joint popping or something?

OMG--that is so awesome! i was starting to feel like a real freak! i'm assuming your babies came out normal--no extra arms or anything? i wasn't worrying about it, but the more i hear it, the more i wonder if its something bad...?

Its from the 2 bags rubbing against each other. Like serane wrap when it gets stuck and you pull on it. During my first pg I didn't want to mention it to anyone cause it was so wierd. But then dh heard it too. Its happened every pg. Some more than others. Last pg it happened ALL the time it was crazy.<br><br>
When my water breaks (Its happened 3 times on its own at term) it makes the same sound. Funny huh.

I had the same exact thing when I was pregnant with my fourth. I thought I was <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: . When I posted about it in my ddc, someone said they had it and thought it was a joint popping, too. I have no idea if that was it, but even after he was born, his shoulder popped a couple times.<br><br>
So, to answer your question I don't know! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But your not crazy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I've never heard of that, but it's fascinating! I wish I could hear it!

The first time i heard it, i was like 30 weeks or something, and i was totally like "OMG, was that my water breaking???" i fully expected to stand up and experience a leak! so what do you mean by the 2 bags rubbing together? you mean, the bag of waters rubbing against the side of the uterus? i wasn't aware there was more than one "bag" in there?<br><br>
Its so great that so many people have experienced this...i really thought i was the only one. makes me feel better <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Its the amnion and the chorion. You might be able to google it in pics and see the two. Basically the amnion holds the fluid and baby and there is another around those (the chorion) that connects to the placenta.

And I was sure you were having a finger snapping musical prodigy! How interesting that the bags would make such a loud sound.

I totally heard this often with my first. Everyone thought I was nuts. Thanks so much for posting this. It's like the girl who posted about sleeping orgasms during pregnancy. It's so great for us wierdos to find eachother and discuss this stuff.

I had the popping with my last babe. Once he was born it was apparent that he is a joint popping little sucker and what I heard from in utero was just that - his little joints a poppin. My mw thought that might be the case when I asked her about it.
