my baby seems to get the hiccups at least once or twice a day lately, anyone else experiencing this? is this okay?

Yep. It is actually quite healthy for them. I read somewhere that it helps them develop their lungs and it's nothing like when we get the hiccups.


madison - March 14

really? it just feels so wierd and i know i hate when i have the hiccups so i hope it doesnt bother her in there!

Madison, I thought the same thing! My baby is starting to get them at least every other day and sometimes they last for around 15 minutes. Glad to hear it's actually beneficial. I just read a story about a poor 15 year old girl that had hiccups for 7 weeks straight! Argh...I would have checked myself in at that point. But to the baby's it's all part of the deal. Enjoy the belly entertainment :)

My baby had hiccups for the first time today! I'm 36 weeks and was surprised it took so long..

Yep my son gets hiccups quite frequently. He is head down too so it feels a bit like my b___t has the hiccups lol. Dont worry the hiccups do not bother them. With my dd she actually had hiccups while i was in labor, tell you what that was a wierd feeling.

I was freaking out with my little bean getting the hiccups all the time. I asked the dr, he said "always remember, any fetal movements are good movements". Sometimes they seem to last a good while and once I start feeling them start up, I am like here we go again, because it does feel sooo weird.

My baby is pretty much head down too, so like Kristin, it feels like my VJJ or b___t is pulsating to a beat!


Kristin11 - March 15

lol feels weird doesnt tracy? I tell you though feeling hiccups while my daughter was in the birth ca___l was even wierder lol.

I'm not sure if what I'm feeling are hiccups?? They feel like them but they're so fast, like one every 3 seconds. Is that what I'm feeling?


laurenl - March 15

Yes misschrissie, that's them. I was thinking the same thing about mine, because they are very fast, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is. My baby gets them about once a day now and sometimes, it's when I wake up in the middle of the night, she gets them. So I can't go back to sleep until she stops.


Kristin11 - March 15

Yes that is the hiccups, Babies breath faster then we do, so thier hiccups are quicker too.


wailing - March 15

I just figured out what the hiccups were also. It was the oddest thing to feel something so fast inside me. Baby isn't head down yet, so I feel them in my upper left side. So adorable:)

Oh my goodness my baby had them all the time and now that she is born she still gets them a lot!


StarsMoon - March 16

Yep.. I get them too.... Or I should say the baby.... And it is soooo strange cause it feels like my bum has a heartbeat. Very strange feeling.. I never noticed it with my first one.. With the first one, I could feel when he went potty. He would shiver and that was strange as well... I learned that one after he was born, cause when he peed, he would shiver. And he still does it.. Brings back so many awesome memories.... The miricles of child bearing... :)
