Pulse like feeling

Im 31 weeks pregnant & sometimes when i lay down , there's this pulse like feeling in my stomach . I would hope its not the heartbeat , because it goes away after a while . Is this normal ? What is it ?

Not the baby's heartbeat. Sorry.

It's just the way your positioned when your laying or sitting down.. But every now and again you might be able to feel the pulse while standing up(but you have to b still). It's okay love if you don't he/she is just fine:)

It's baby's heartbeat! MY little one gets them a lot, mostly when I'm laying down or sitting

It's your heart beat or hiccups. You can't feel the baby's heartbeat. My stomach does that and I'm currently not pregnant.

I would say hiccups im 32 weeks and can feel them now I didn't with my first till 36 weeks, heart beat is 150 ish bpm no way it's heart beat

It could be your heart beat or baby's hiccups. When I'm laying down I can actually feel my heartbeat more right in the middle of my bump. Makes getting US difficult for the technician especially when baby is right behind it. My baby gets hiccups often but she's head down so I can feel them lower down like a steady beat.
