How often do you guys notice that your babies have the hiccups? It seems like mine gets them at least twice a day, and it's a really strange sensation.



just wondering........

I have never felt them! I didn't feel them with dd either. Either I have weird kids or my perception is off.

At least a few times a day, just like my other babies.

A couple times a day, like ds did.

DS actually felt it the other day. I told him the baby has the hiccups and he thought that was hilarious!

Don't suppose anyone can describe them? I never did pick them up with DD, and I can't say I've noticed anything with this babe, either. Unless I'm just missing something?

I've felt this just once so far with this babe. With ds, he hiccuped all the time

KC - this babe is vertex at this point, so I feel them down really low and they are so repetitive that, for me, is was really easy to figure out.

They feel like little jerky bumps/kicks to me. I can tell b/c they are regular like when I have the hiccups not just random pokes and kicks. This baby gets them about 3 times a day. The other day I was laying in bed with dd - 12 months and she got the hiccups after eating. Then the baby inside got the hiccups too! They both were bouncing me around so that I was thinking I'd get the hiccups also!

It's happened a few times, but nothing so regular as once a day. It's just so rhythmic and repetitive that it is clearly different than the other kicks, shifts, jabs, etc. Pretty neat!
If I feel them down low, does that mean baby's head is down? Sometimes I swear the little fish is head up and moving back and forth every day!

DD got them *all* the time, I haven't noticed this babe getting them yet. DD used to get them all the time the first couple of months after she was born too...it was really funny, she'd get so mad! Angry 2 month olds are the cutest things ever, I swear!

I almost always feel them way down low, which does mean head down. But then the other day there was a pause, some big moves, then about 20 seconds later I felt hiccupping up by my ribs.

This babe has only had them once or twice, but ds#1 had them so reliably in utero that you could set a clock to them -- at least 4 times/day. I didn't need kick counts -- I had hiccup counts! He kept up that schedule for a few weeks after birth and they've sort of tappered off. But he still gets them more than most people (at least a few times/week).

Like other posters have said, they feel like very rhythmic jerks that last for a few minutes. The jerks are actually the shoulders moving, so if you feel them low, baby is head down, and if you feel them high, baby is head up. Ds#1 was otherwise a quiet baby in utero, so for dh, the hiccups were the only "kicking" he ever really felt. This kid is a totally different story ...

Oh good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't felt them!

I wasn't sure I was feeling baby movements at all until about 20 weeks & by then, the movements were HUGE. Maybe I'm just not all that sensitive to the little movements? Plus, I have an anterior placenta. Hmm..
