  • i have had that same thing happen to me. I actually saw what was causing the popping noise. One day at around 35 weeks when I had my last ultrasound we were watching it and I heard this pop. the nurse started laughing and I said what was that? she said it was his hip popping. it causes them no discomfort but their joints are popping in the womb and you can hear it. it doesn't happen to every one but it does happen a lot. Just calm down it's normal.

  • My son's foot and leg would spasm and totally freaked me out thinking something was wrong with him so I went to the hospital and my dr told me this happens and as the lady said above me thier joints do pop!
    When my son was born for the first few days his little leg and foot would spasm just like when he in my belly..( we called him thumper) So neat!

  • I once read that this woman was hearing the same thing only to decribe it like the noise of someone clicking their nails together but I never found out what it really was, strange but normal GL
