    My belly seems to click several times a day now. I thought it was the baby's joints but someone else said it could be fluid.

    i have seen other people talk about it on this forum and thought it must be normal.

    just met with a few of the girls from my nct class though and they all thought it sounded odd.., do many other people get this!!??

    I had this with my last pregnancy I thought it was DH at first slapping his lips but after listening carefully it was coming from
    my bump. I mentioned it to my Consultant and he said it was fine. I worried at first that it was DS hips or something? He was fine :)

    Just waiting to see if I get it with this pregnancy also.

    I've been getting it for the last few wks too,several times a day.
    Its my 3rd baby and I never experienced this with the other 2!
    I did ask my doc at my last appointment and she said it was babies joints and nothing to worry about apparently.Its still freaky though isn't it?!!!

    Me too! ive had this for months i told my midwife and she just looked at me as if i was mad. The more his growing the more its happening now when he moves. I believe its babies joints after doing lots of research.

    I get this. When he isn't hiccuping he is clicking. Weird child. I have heard that it can be anything from fluid, to joints, to air in the tendons of the baby. Made me jump put of my skin the first time. It sounded like a twig snapping.

    Glad I came across this as I kept forgetting to ask my MW what it was! It is really strange and my son didn't do it so I was worried! X

    I have this too and it's the first time I've heard of anyone else having it, so thanks for posting (although he's dfue any day now, it makes little difference!). I can hear the clicks right in the centre of my belly quite a few times a day but no one else aroudn me seems to hear them - but maybe it's just because they haven't got the patience to listen!

    I had this with my first daughter late in 3rd tri, I thought it was really strange and even my mum could hear it when she listened quietly. I had no idea what it was until she was born sucking her thumb and I immedietely recognised the clicking sound. I assumed that she had been sucking her thumb whilst in the womb, it was definately the same clicking sound.
