I've been feeling this weird pulsing thing?

It's like a pulse or popping feeling down low... and it keeps going for a while stops and then starts up again but it doesn't hurt... its just kind of a weird feeling. Anybody know what this is?? I'm 35 weeks pregnant... and this is all new to me so feel free to let me know if this is a silly question.

  • a kick? Is it steady? It may be your baby having the hiccups...Kaylee had them since I was 6 months pregnant, lol.

  • I know exactly what you are talking about!! I asked my midwife and she said it may be my pulse because there is a major artery that runs up your stomach.... I've felt the baby hiccup before, so I know it's not that. It's definitely a pulse. Very weird...I didn't feel it with my first daughter.

  • There is no artery that runs up your stomach....however there are two arteries, one on each side, that can be found right on the inside of your pelvic bone called your femoral artery, and I suppose you could feel your pulse from there.

  • Sounds like hiccups to me also. My son had them all the time when I was pregnant with him.
