My baby gets hiccups everyday and I can feel it. It is very very annoying. How can I stop this? does other mothers feel this?

I think my baby also has hiccups alot its like a small continous movement in my stomach, it's mad!!! I just press my belly hoping it will go away LOL!

Wow...I posted a question just like this when I first found this site! I was SO worried, I didn't know how it was possible for a baby to have a constant timed interval sequence of movement. I learned it was hiccups from my doc. I always feel it in my lower right or left hand side, but I am carrying very low...Honestly to me it feels like "Tap...tap...tap...tap..." and it lasts for a couple of minutes, sometimes even LONGER than 5. My doc said that it is VERY healthy for your baby to get hiccups many times a day, it shows his lungs are developing.

my first babe had them several times a day, every day. you cant do anything about it. it bugs us mommies more than it bugs our babies.

He did and he hiccups like crazy still, out of my womb. It is nothing more than an underdeveloped neurological system, and it will go away in time. I always loved to feel the spasms from his hiccups. I miss being pregnant!!

So when you get hiccups it's because your neurological system is underdeveloped?


E - April 28

No, but for infants who hiccup after every meal and then some, that is the case. Speak with a pediatrician if you want clarification.

"Chin trembling, lower lip quivering, frequent yawning, hiccups and sneezing are signs of the normal immature nervous system of a newborn. These reflexes disappear after 2 to 4 months." Source -

I had my 20 week u/s today, and the whole time the technician had my baby up on the screen, he had the hiccups. It was so funny. Although I can clearly feel the baby kicking every day, I couldn't feel the hiccups at all. I was kind of glad... I am sure I will in time. The tech said it was b/c the baby had been drinking the amniotic fluid, which they are supposed to do.

Yep. I'm 33 wks pregnant and baby has the hiccups several times a day, every day. I hear it doesn't bother them though...It is just a weird feeling for the mom !

I feel it everyday, It feels like taps, or little jumps for about five minutes or more every single day. I don't think it's nothing serious but it's annoying. when I have hiccups I drink water so i figured maybe if I drink water his will go away ( silly right!) but it doesn't. So I have to feel him jumping inside of me.
