Where do you feel hiccups? I've been feeling them everywhere. It's driving me nuts because I obsess about baby's position. Sometimes they are low and sometimes I feel them higher than my belly button.

All the hiccups lately have been in my right hip. I think this guy is pretty well engaged, on my cervical check ultrasound they couldn't see my cervix abdominally anymore because his head is so deep against it. He does tend to spin from anterior to the right, but he always stays on the right when he has hiccups.

I feel them all over too. I don't think that you can tell much from where you feel them though. My friend who had a c-sect for a breech baby always felt her hiccups really low in her pelvis. Sometimes I feel them like bouncing on my cervix, sometimes right at my belly button, and sometimes way off to the right. Maybe it is more like what the baby happens to be pressing against in the moment rather then what position he/she is in?

I feel hiccups many times a day!!! Is THIS normal?

I think they make the whole body move, so you can feel them everywhere, kwim? I'm 99% sure this one is LOA, but when she gets the hiccups, her little butt wiggles up and down too!

I can feel them low in my pelvis, but they tend to make baby's whole body shake.

Mine are always in my lower abdominal. But my little guy is definitely engaging - head is nice & low.

ugh, this one gets hiccups 3-4 times a day. my midwife said it's completely normal and a good sign of lung development.
and it's usually right against my cervix, although i can feel the rest of the body spaz out.
