I dont know if anyone has every heard of this but i swear i hear like a crack noise or a popping sound from my stomach, it sounds like maybe the babys bone cracked or something, i am 38 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. Has this happend to anyone or is it all in my head?

It could be your hips getting ready for you to have the baby. But you should make sure nothing is wrong and check with the dr.

i have this too, at 38 week, it came from outta nowhere..i have heard it as many as 5 times, in one night.dr, and dh told me not to worry, it was the baby's joints popping...they dont have much room in there must be cramped.

YES!! Me too!! I get this often as well...I first thought it was my bones but I wasnt even i thought it was the baby pushing into my bones or something..but I NEVER felt any pressure on any bones of i finally have come to the conclusion that it HAS to be the baby..i never asked my doc but I am SURE that it has to be his little bones in there..could just be the tight position and stretching and when you crack your glad i found someone mention this because I tried countless hours to find info about it on the internet and found nothing..but i think its not a bad sign of anything :o) ... baby is fine..x

So like no one else hears this when their baby moves around sometimes?As a matter of fact I heard this "snap" noise yesterday wwhen I was in bed reading... I know I am not hearing things lol.......anyone else?

I also have been hearing the cracking sound and I am only 33 1/2 weeks and this is my third child. I have never heard it with my other 2 children, but I called the dr. and they said unless I was leaking fluid or it is causing pain that everything was fine, but they did not say anything about the babys bones. I am so glad that other people are hearing it too and that I found this web site because it is in no other information that I have pulled up.

Thank goodness, I'm not crazy!! I knew I was hearing a snapping sound every now and then, but I couldn't figure out why. And when I told my husband he just looked at me funny. I'm glad to know what it is now and I'm not alone.

I know exactly what u mean. Im preg with my 4th child and have heard it every pregnancy towards the end. im now 31.4 weeks and have been hearing it for a good 2 weeks now its really weird lol im not usedto it this early everytime i hear it i wait for a goosh thinking could it be my water (knowing it isnt) lol it sounds like hte babys popping her knuckles or snapping the amnio sac against uterus like a bra strap can be creeepy n mostly when baby is moving

OMG! I thought I must be hearing things. I have also heard the weird occasional *POP* when the baby moves or stretches. It's a MAJOR relief to hear that someone else is experiencing this, too.

I am only 28 weeks but I have been hearing it a lot lately too. I was kind of worried. At least I know I am not the only one.


rachel - July 13

yes i have this too, ive had it since i was about 30 weeks pregnant. apparently all it is is your waters and as the baby moves..if this noise was on the outside it would sound more like a swishing noise then a crack.its nothing to worry about.


belgian - July 13

hey ladies... well here I am...had my baby...was a boy..hehe..and hes 5 months now! It goes quick!!! anyway, yea, that cracking sound was the sound of the baby's joints indeed...its so weird..but i heard it when he was born until now..but not often ...very rare...but its his bones...and its NOTHING to worry about....yea...its is quite tight in there for the little one..or ones... ;-)
