It seems quite common based on the number of women who ask about it on MN. There have been a number of theories, but I don't think anyone's ever come up with a definitive answer -- certainly doesn't seem to be related to any problem, though.

I've also read a few posts where mumsnetters claim that their baby makes popping sounds (nothing to worry about apparently). My pelvis pops when I roll over at night (have spd)...
I'm not sure, but I like to think you'd have noticed if it was your waters breaking hmm - not being sarcastic, was havgin this conversation with someone this morning. I asked if I'd def know during my NCT class (what if I was in the bath or on the loo) and was told you'd absolutely know if yuor waters went......

yes i dont think was my waters , seemed to be high up and no obvious signs of it being that! i am by nature a worrier and my first thought is oh it must be something bad but having posted here and had a google it seems a few have had the same thing

Baby kicking something that makes a hollow sound....? Sloshing around of water in uterus or stomach could possibly make this noise. Ummmmm
