Never heard or experienced it..But if your doctor says things look fine ..Then I guess they must ..Just try not to stress and if you think you need to see another doctor to get a second opinion then go for it..It might make you feel better ! :wink:

My baby is only in my abdomen--and I hear popping all the time. I think it is the water bag--popping outta the space it has envaded. To re-fill the same place next time--and pop back outta there again.


It is possible that you are feeling your water sac too!!! I dont know

There was a thread about this a while back and a few of the people were experiencing it and said it was normal. I think it's your ligaments or something.

Yeah, I did experience popping sounds before but I don't know about the leaking fluid part. That's the part that would concern me.

Have been to the hospital about it and thay say it could be a rupture in membrain (sack) but thay didn't check my pads so I discharged myself and went to see my midwife, who she said it could be the baby's joints cracking when she moves, which now I seem to think it is as the bigger she grows the louder the sounds get. Have had enough now my belly is so big and tight I think im gonna explode lol, only 6 weeks to go.

Same predicament
I have no idea what it is but the exact same thing happens to me. Going to the doctor Thursday and hopefully will find out then.

i posted nearly 3 yrs ago i am glad my post still gets used, my midwife said it was the babys joints cracking as she moved, i didnt think it posible, but when my 8ib 12oz cubby daughter was born, when she moved her joints clicked, the midwife said where she was floating in the sack it was ecoing,
that was nearly 3 yrs ago and her joints still click now and again as like mine do.
