SeRiously, do not recall that annoyance during my first pregnancy. It's like my heart is beating LOUDLY at the EARS...does that make sense. Sometimes I can't sLeep because that's all I hear and it gets pretty ANNOYING!!

Anyone care to share if they have gone, going through or is this even NORMAL..hahaha

 

Thanks!

I actually did have that when I was pregnant with my daughter.  Not all the time but sometimes and I hated it, I don't have a cure for you, but I use to go take a shower when happened because it would get me all worked up not being able to sleep and the shower helped me calm down.

This happened with me. Not all the time, but just sporadically. It's due to increased blood volume. It doesn't happen to every woman or during every pregnancy. I noticed it mostly when resting after a sudden burst of activity. Or at night in bed, when everything was quiet. There is actually a term for it, but I had my baby four months ago and I can't remember what it was called anymore!

I have that all the time. I've grown used to it, but it is rather annoying. I'm fine and have had it as long as I remember, so I don't think it poses any real  threat.

Its much worse if you like lay on your arm or something for support I think. Then Not only can I HEAR the pumping/blood flow, but I can feel the pusling, GROSS!
