    Question hiccups?

    How often does your baby get hiccups? Junior has them atleast once every single day without fail. Is this normal??

    Hey Danni,
    I dont know if its 'normal' as such but I can tell you that Jacob had them every day!!!
    its felt so wierd!! He still gets them once every few days to this day (now 5 months old!)

    So I dont think its anything to worry about... my MW told me its nothing.

    Good luck!!

    DS had, and still has, lots of hiccups. The good news is that, once on the outside, sucking stops hiccups.

    Yep, I felt them three times throughout the day yesterday. And really close together, like every 3 seconds? Bizarre isn't it!!!

    you're so lucky you're not at work, Danni - Liebling would hiccup when I was on the phone and couldn't stop and coo at him!

    ooohh, i miss that! My little girl would get the hiccups 2-3 times a day in the last 4-5 weeks of pregnancy. My DP would get worried as he didnt think it was normal, I kept trying to reassure him it was only hiccups.

    Funny thing is now that she is here she is still a 'hiccupy baby' (as I call her) She even hiccups in her sleep sometimes.................now thats wierd

    Sounds normal to me Danni, bub gets them at least once a day (normally 2-3 times). I even had it during the night which woke me up.

    Hiccups twice a day at least for Ed too. And I have to agree with Caro that it feels really weird when her head is right down low in my pelvis and I'm feeling all these regular little jumps! Can't say I like them very much - definitely prefer the feeling of her just squirming around in there.

    ok this is weird then. MOST of the time when junior has hiccups I feel it down low. Isnt that impossible considering his head his right underneath my sternum?

    Bob gets hiccups at least 3 times a day. He gets them more often when I have certain foods and if I have Coke he goes on for ages! Luckily, I don't have coke often! His hiccups are the best way for me to monitor which way he is facing though. He's been head-down for ages, but one day he turned head up for the day. He also moves from being down in the left side of my pelvis to the right side - all monitored from hiccups. I have to say, they get annoying at times, and when he's facing toward my back I HATE the feeling of them on my bowel!!!!

    haha, my bub has been getting the hiccups every couple of days, like you Caro its right down on the pubic line - I don't like it to be honest, I have this fear that bubs can't breath properly or something
