What causes the baby to have hiccupps and is there anyway to prevent the baby from getting them

I'm not sure what causes them, something about a miscommunication in the baby's brain. But anyways, I've heard that they are a good thing... maybe it's just a way of knowing your baby is normal. I know they get annoying sometimes, but they don't hurt you or your baby, so I wouldn't worry about them.

its normal. and nothing with the brain. its yoru baby's lungs and swallowing going into practice. the baby swallows amnio fluid. all baby's get it. My baby gets it everyday.sometimes more than once a day.but it also continues after birth!

Lots of people say that if your baby is active inutero, he'll be active when he's born (not proven) and the same people say just that about quiet babies too. The fact is, the only thing people are really sure of is that a baby who has a lot of hiccups inutero (like mine!) will continue to have a lot when it's born. Gulping back too much amniotic fluid is the cause but it doesn't mean that all babies who chug too much of the stuff will get hiccups, it just means that more babies are prone to them. Mine get's them 7-10 times a day and I find it's most often after I eat (which seems odd to me...) They're annoying as heck, especially since he's been head down the entire time but, at least I know he's doing Okay in there. If your baby isn't getting them, it's likely he/she won't get many of them after birth either.
