Hiccups!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just love when the babies get the hiccups. This baby got them for the first time (that I could feel) a few days ago. My DD (who's 10) actually felt them too. I'm assuming the baby's head is down because I feel the hiccups way down there! LOL

No hiccups yet that I can tell. Can you feel the different parts of the baby? I can't tell what's going on -- only that I'm getting poked in different places.

How do you know where the baby's head is? If s/he's shaking from hiccups couldn't it be the chest? Or shoulders? (I tried mock-hiccoughing to see what moved and it wasn't my head. Am I being an idiot?)

*blush*

I'm such a newb.

I had a dream my baby had hiccups. My friend thinks it did. They say you can feel hiccups better than kicks so maybe it was.

Once your baby is here, you will see that in a person that small, hiccups are really a full-body experience I did not feel them with dd until I was 28 weeks, but then I felt them ALL! THE! TIME! Every day. Some days 4-5 times. (She was a big hiccuper as a nb also.) I personally found it much easier to determine body parts, head vs feet location in the 3rd trimester. It also helped that dd's placenta was posterior.

I haven't felt hiccups yet with this one, but I recall it with my DD! When she would get hiccups, they lasted FOREVER! (Still do for her now, poor girl!!) And she would get them and then after a bit she would hiccup and then kcik, hiccup, kick! She would get SO upset! It made me laugh!! Can't wait to feel them with this babe!!

PS And yes, I agree! Hiccups with little ones ARE a full-body experience!!!

Oh yes, this baby hiccups a LOT! I seem to be feeling it in the middle of my belly, down low. It's a funny feeling! Much different than the kicks and other moves.
