What is this feeling?

I know it can't be the baby, based on weeks and the fact that I'm heavy... but I'm having it since yesterday on and off again. It's a bubbly sensation right below my belly button like at the start of the pubic bone. It's quick, almost feels like someone blew threw a straw really quickly. It's always in the same spot. It has happened like 3 times already. Is that gas? I remember it with my daughter but don't remember when it started...

I think the fundal height is right about there at this point. Maybe just uterine expansion taking on a new freaky feeling?

:lurk:

I know exactly what you are talking about. I had that with my pregnancies, too.. but I figured it was liquid entering my bladder. Do you have a doppler at home? perhaps you can listen in to the "feeling" and see if you can determine based on that.

I do! But I haven't found anything yet. Sad I tried yesterday afternoon but could only find what we believe is the sound of the placenta.

Really stupid question here.... does the placenta have a sound? I'm sincerely asking... :question:

I have read it does, but I don't really know for sure! LOL! I know it's something and its not my stomach!

It (the placenta) sounds like swishy. I have heard the swishing noise, so I am assuming that is the placenta.

Mari - I haven't felt anything like that, but "uterine expansion" seems to cover pretty much all of the weird sensations we feel so that's my guess too. Smile

OMG. I totally thought of this today. I was sweeping at work and I was mad because I swept before I left and I come back to a pig sty (working with men!!) ...and I thought about just throwing down the broom and screaming MY VAGINA HURTS. LMFAO
