popping sound - please advise dr
I dont know if you've heard about this but nobody can give me an answer... I've been searching the web looking for answers and came across a forum of woman complaining about the same thing and no one has the answers, please be the first to give us a answer.. We complain about a popping sound sometimes when baby moves from our belly's I am 34 weeks pregnant and have experienced it now for about a week. There are no pain involved but it only happens when baby moves. It sounds like when you pop bubble wrap, or when one of your joints pops when you move it.. it is the most weardest sound. My baby's moving normally and I dont feel it often about every second day. Please could you do some research, I've tried but cant find anything. I am sure you would be able to answer without doing research, please help we are very worried somethings wrong. If it is baby's ligaments could there be something wrong?.. please advise as soon as you can...thanks ...

Possibly the movements of the baby are pressing against the bowel and this produces a sound similar to a 'wind'.
