    Default Baby Hiccups

    Hi guys..



    Since the weekend ive discovered what seems to be my baby hiccuping. Its like a soft taping kind feeling on my inside that lasts about 5 minutes or so and happens every 3 or 4 seconds.
    I said to the midwife yesterday at my hospital appointment.. "Its probably just hiccups but.." and she then jumped in and said "yes its hiccups". I told her about what i was feeling and she explained its common thing thats its just bubs has a full tummy and if i get it alot then he probably will when hes born.. thats its nothing at all to worry about.
    But thing is ive been getting it about twice a day for the past 4 or 5 days.. is it normal to get it that often?

    Yep totally normal.
    My DD had them sometimes 3-4 times a day when I was pregnant with her. She got them nearly everyday for a month or two after she was born as well. I kinda liked it - reassured me she was ok and practicing her breathing movements. It's all good

    Kellxx - yeh I had them alot with this one (didn't with first) and whether or not its coincidence he gets them a couple of times a day now he's out. Luckily hiccups don't disturb babies the way they do us - in fact if he's hiccupping and it's time for a sleep I can put him down and know there won't be any whinges the rhythmic nature seems to lull him off to sleep happily.
