Is it normal to have a "clicking" sound coming from your bump?

35 weeks pregnant and have a clicking sound occasionally coming from my bump, almost like clicking of joints. There is no pain involved. Anyone else had this? I have looked it up online and I can't seem to find an explanation as to why, although it seems to be something that others have experienced....

I've got something similar happening, but can't really 'hear' it, just feel the occasional 'click'! Stupid explanation, but maybe you'll know what I mean! Started yesterday (36 weeks today). It's a bit lower than my ribs - and her feet are right up in my ribs poking around. Feels different to that. Anyway, I guess we're bound to get lots of weird goings-on with nearly ready babies inside us!

Me too! What the hell is it? I'm 34 weeks and been hearing the 'click' for about two weeks now.

I thought it might be my SPD acting up and maybe I was hearing the front pubic joints clicking, but it doesn't seem to be low down, and it definitely is associated with the baby moving. Doesn't hurt, but I can definitely hear weird.

Could it be the baby having hiccups? Mine does that quite a lot (currently 38+4) and I can feel the 'clicks' every few seconds, sometimes it can be quite strong.

it's hiccupping. V. common.

Mine's not hiccupping. That's happening just above my pelvis on the right hand side and is small rhythmic movements. This is only one 'click' at a time.

There are so many threads about clicking late in pregnancy. Nobody's ever worked out what it is but it's very common!

Mine's def not hiccups as it comes from the top of my stomach on the right hand side. Baby is engaged so when he hiccups, I feel it lower in my pelvis. Also a very different sensation. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

there are soooooo many threads about this.

yes it is clicking

no it is not hiccupping.

no it doesn't harm the baby.

I had it with both mine and all was fine.

incidentally my personal theory is it's coming from the mother's pelvis but the sound is kind of dispersed through the amniotic fluid which is why it sounds like its coming from the bump.

I used to get this. DS was born with a clicky hip and I am sure it was his hip clicking inside me!

Is it your ribs expanding?

Not heard that one before, you sure your babies are human and not dolphins?

babyball Wed 15-Jul-09 16:09:16

I wonder if he is a dolphin after all(!)
It's rather bizarre, that so many get this and there has been no explanation for it so far.

Yup getting that too, thought I was imagining it until himself heard it and thought I had broken the baby. Insisted I go doctor about it. Doctor thought I was insane.

It must be rather boring in there all day maybe the baby is doing one of those puzzle things that debenhams sell alot of at christmas time? grin
I cant remember getting it last time but im sure its just general baby moving around sounds.

babyball Thu 16-Jul-09 17:04:15

Oops, hope I haven't broken the baby Boodlerpoop!

Baby not broken, just clicky
