No hiccups?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Anyone's baby not get hiccups?  It's so weird because both of my previous babies got TONS of hiccups.  At least daily and I've never felt hiccups with this one...  lots of movement and pushing/kicks, but no hiccups!

No hiccups here, not much movement at all. greensad.gif

I've only felt hiccups two or three times, not often at all.

I'm not sure I've ever felt any of my babies have hiccups. I wouldn't know what to be looking for, so if it's happened, it wasn't obvious.

I don't think I've felt hiccups from either baby. My wife says i would definitely know because it's an unmistakable feeling. I hope it's not a bad sign.

No hiccups here either - for baby or myself! I've just realized that I haven't had the hiccups either since I got pregnant shrug.gif

It feels like a really rhythmic kick over and over.  Both of my first pregnancies had them every single day, so it's so weird not to experience them this time.  I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.  It can actually be a sign of thumb sucking, which can lead to a nuchal hand.

Guess whose baby got the hiccups last night when I was trying to fall asleep?  LOL!

I've only felt them twice.  Just like a really light tapping at a steady pace.  If it had happened when I wasn't laying down quietly, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

She's got them now! It's funny, not much movement for days and now hiccups lol.

Yeah, my lo just got them for the first time (that I've noticed) last night! DS and DD2 both had them all the time, near the end of each pregnancy.

I might have gotten something that could have possibly been the hiccups (on baby) ..... I mean, the description sounds right, though I would not call it something unmistakeable.

I felt them for the first time around 27 weeks, and now I feel them almost on a daily basis! But the way my girl is positioned it's pretty obvious that her head is down and curled up on my right side. I always feel them in the same place, lower right abdomen almost near my hip. It's pretty cute, but sometimes it's less noticeable. Like someone else said it feels like light tapping. Rhythmic, but not the same pace as normal adult hiccups!

I wouldn't say I found them unmistakeable either.  I think at first I was like, hmm, that's weird I'm feeling a pulse (thought maybe I was positioned in such a way I was restricting some artery) but then when I shifted and kept feeling them, I remembered the previous thread about hiccups and it occurred to me that that is what it was.

I feel them daily. Did with dd too. To me they are very noticeable. Most of the time I feel them in my butt! Lol He's been head down since the 2nd tri. Sometimes I can feel them from the outside.

That's exactly how I would describe it: like a heartbeat down in your stomach.

Not mine this time either. DD had them once in awhile. Not often. DD was so much gentler in the womb. This one is pushing or shoving vital organs or something. I actually have discomfort from it. I find it odd that one pg I carried high or think so, and this one, low.

I think hiccups really start once you are at the very end for practice breaths right?
