Is it true that fetal hiccups slow down towards the end?I'm 40 weeks tomorrow and this baby doesn't seem to want out.

She still gets hiccups every single day.It used to be 5 times,then it reduced to 2-3 but yesterday she got them 5 times as well,some bouts lasting up to 20 min.

I read or someone told me,don't remember,that one of the signs of impending labor is decrease of those annoying hiccups.

Was this true for u? I'm super upset as i was hoping to go in labor soon.

Has anyone else had a hiccupy baby until the end?

Does 5 times a day seems awfuly lot for 40 weeks?

Thanks for reading

My babe hiccupped like crazy up until the end - not *during* labor, though. And now she is out, she hiccups like mad every day.

I don't think it makes a great deal of difference either way.

DDC crashing... DD1 had hiccups during labor. She hiccuped when she was almost out of the birth canal lol and you could see my v*gina bounce every time she did it.

Hiccups never slowed down for us during pregnancy

DD1 hiccuped all the way up until I was about 8 cm and nearing transition. Then she quit, for about four hours, and then she kept up the hiccuping, several times a day, until she learned to sit up alone.

So there's hope, yeah?

DS was a hiccuppy fetus and he did slow down towards the end. I definitely noticed when I didn't feel them anymore, or at least not as much. I think it was during the last 2 weeks or so.
