    Talking Is this the hiccups?

    My little one tends to move around a fair bit. The last couple of weeks, every now and again I can feel a sort of tapping/throbbing close to the bottom of my belly - really irritating if I need to pee! Do you think bubs gets the hiccups, or do you reckon s/he is just smacking me and has a really good sense of rhythm?!

    Yep, sounds like hiccups.......all 3 of mine were champion hiccup'ers! (My paed told me it is a good sign of a mature swallowing function or something, so whilst it is irritating, is is normal and healthy!)

    Definately hiccups...wonderful at first, but irritating after a while. Both of mine got the hiccups quite regularly in the 3rd trimester sometimes lasting 20 minutes at a time.

    Yep the hiccups. DH used to be able to feel Hendrix hiccuping through my belly regularly. He used to get the hiccups inutero so often and once he was born he chronically had the hiccups for the first few months. Used to drive him bonkers!

    Good grief, Mads, I think I'd go nuts if it happened that often!
