Vibrating Feeling

monkey501 posted:
I'm currently 18 weeks pregnant. I have started feeling a vibrating feeling low in my uterus. It started a few days ago and lasted for a few minutes. Last night and today, it's almost constant. What is causing this and should I be alarmed?
I don't think it's my baby moving per say. If so, he/ she NEVER sleeps!

Robert O Atlas, MD responded:
The question is what are the vibrations? Are they uterine contractions, bladder problems, or bowel problems.

I would be looking at other symptoms you may be having, change in vaginal discharge, urinary complaints, constipation, etc...

I would be contacting your physician if these symptoms continue. I would contact them tomorrow and see them.

It could be very normal. Good luck.
