i know this sounds weird, but i keep hearing clicking noises from my bump, mostly when the baby moves. been noticing this for a few weeks but now i'm nearly due i hear them a lot more. am i going insane or is this common?

I remember this! People said to me it must be hiccups, but I knew it wasn't as that felt completely different! I think I came to the conculsion that it was just fluid sloshing around.

Is there a pattern?Could it be morse code?

Nothing useful to say,sorry,never heard of this one before.

I have noticed sometimes, when I get a really good hard kick it makes a noise but I'm not sure if its clicking.

well i found a thread on it in the archives. glad to know someone else has had this!
LOL at the thought of baby sending out morse code!

I had this too! I think it's just tendons clicking - you know, how some people's knees or ankles click sometimes. I'm pretty sure it came from dd's ankle in my case, seemed to happen when she pushed her foot out.

Be bloody handy if they could do it though wouldn't Lilac?

"I'm going to sleep and therefore will not be moving at all for the next 5 hours.Please don't worry though,I will wake at about 2 am and kick the s**t out of you til breakfast time.Oh,and can you not eat curried pineapple again today to get me out,it makes me feel icky and won't work.I'll be out when I'm ready.Thanks Mummy"

I had this too and a kind of popping noise. GP and Midwife thought I was going mad ! So did DH until he heard it too one day! My DD is 5 weeks old today and is fine so it didn't do her any harm.

i have this too. i had it with ds who is 9 soon but not with dd who is 6. i am having a ds, maybe its just the boys.
i think its the fluid sloshing rather than legs clicking.

Ive noticed this also. I thought it sounded the same as if you shake a hot water bottle about and just guessed that it was the sound of the water inside where the baby had kicked really hard.
