    Vibrating Feeling

    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.
