17 weeks pregnant and ear thumping

I am 17 weeks pregnant and woke up this morning with my right ear thumping intermittently. It has been carrying on all day. Is this as a result of the pregnancy? It feels almost like a pulse deep in my ear then it goes away - almost like a muscular spasm in my ear???

LOL,its normal.theres an increase of bloodflow through your heart and to your tummy,and then your pulse is also " louder" .I was on the loo when i firts noticed it when i was pregnant,i thought it was the neighbour playing loud music,i went to our bedroom and ask my husband if he hears them aswell,and he said no!So i went quiet and listened again,then i noticed its in my head,my ears to be spesific.So i ask my Gynae about it,and he said its just because if the increase bloodflow,your heart is pumping more than usual to supply for the growing baby and so on!!
