Hiccups!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
She gets them AT LEAST twice a day, EVERY day. Sometimes more. Poor thing! Anyone else experiencing this? Does it mean anything necessarily?

Yep, Henry has been having hiccups for quite a while now - had the same experience with Jack in utero. I don't know if this is related, but jack had TONS of hiccups after he was born, so I will be interested to see if Henry does too!

All of my babies have had frequent hiccups in utero, and they've all been born super healthy. I've read it's a good healthy sign that their lungs are exercising and developing properly. My baby gets them 2-4 times a day everyday.

Yup...I've noticed LOTS of hiccups from my little one in the last few weeks.
I too read that it's a normal reflex and warm-up for independent breathing.

I feel them too. It such a sweet tap-tap kind of feeling as opposed to the crazy mountain moving that this babe usually does...

Baby has been hiccuping here too. I love feeling them With DD I stressed out because THAT baby book (What to expect) says it can be a sign of cord problems. THAT book is the only place I have ever read/heard this. My m/w and everyone else says not to worry they are very normal and just enjoy feeling your baby!

Same here. In fact, baby has them right now! Koa was the same way.

I only felt them with DS towards the very end of the pregnancy, although now I think maybe I just didn't know what I was looking for This one has them several times a day. My sister has said what the PPs said, that the babies that have them a lot in utero are very hiccupy after birth too. It'll be interesting to see if that's true for us!

Yup, here too! We just had a bunch a few min ago! So cute...

The first time I felt it I thought...hum, this baby is really kicking a lot, then I thought...no this baby has a tick...then it dawned on me...ah, it's the hiccups!

Yes, hiccupy baby 2-3 times every day. It has been fun feeling them get stronger as the baby has gotten bigger. I personally hate having hiccups myself, so hopefully the baby doesn't mind! I love hearing that's it's a good healthy sign. Very reassuring!

Yes, at least one to two times daily. They are so strong. Her head is way down there so I feel them vibrating my tail bone almost.

So I have a stupid question. Everyone keeps saying that the hiccups are a good sign of developing lungs. But child/adult hiccups are spasms of the stomach, are they not? What am I missing here?

us here too, at least once a day but usually more. I love it.

I didn't figure out what they were until a couple of weeks ago ... but now that I know, I am aware of when it is happening ... and it has been happening at least once a day. And at our Bradley classes and other places that I have read they have said that it is a good sign and that it is completely normal ... as you have all said already ... a good preparation for the outside world!

: It is definitley like that ... because the regular movements are really belly warping!
