Ribs popping??

Okay.... DH thinks I'm nuts... but I swear every now and again I think I hear something internally (like where my giant belly is near my ribs) pop... or "crack" like someone's knuckles. It doesn't hurt really.. but it is a little concerning.

Anyone ever have their "ribs" crack during late pregnancy? I'm almost 37 weeks along.... so I guess that sound could just about be anything.

It's usually your baby's joints popping It's not harmful at all.. DD would tend to pop waking up from a nap, usually with the first good stretch!

Oh yeah, that, LOL. I used to think it was the uterus popping around my ribs...but I was probably wrong! I haven't quite gotten that big this time, so no new observances yet!

It's not entirely impossible -- my sister-in-law's mother-in-law (follow? ) got a fractured rib while she was pregnant, thanks to a solid kick. I would think that would be painful though.
