This little one has been hiccuping since at least 18 weeks I'm at about 21 weeks.She likes to wave her hands around too.feels very wierd.My first baby hiccuped more than he moved so I would worry when he didn't!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>

I *think* this lil guy is hiccupping--but his are VIOLENT! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Really, I think they feel very strong because he's most often transverse with his back on my pelvis, so I feel them in his whole body. And yes, they're frequent!

i've just started to feel for sure hiccups in the past.. 1.5 weeks? i'm 23 wks 2 days now.. they seem really strong .. but she never seems to have them for very long.. i'm dreading the hiccups in late pregnancy when the baby is so big it feels like you have them yoruself.. i hate that!

I'm pretty sure this lo is hiccupping a lot...though her hiccups are so different than my boys' hiccups (ds3 was a constant hiccupper). This baby has short bursts of hiccups, where not every hiccup is regularly spaced from the last. Sometimes I sit and wonder if she's hiccuping, or if her movements are just more regular as she's kicking/punching/whatever.<br><br>
Do hiccups become more regular and rhythmic as the baby gets older? Maybe that's the stage I'm remembering with ds3 and ds2 (ds1, as far as I can remember, was not much of a hiccupper).<br><br>
Side question: has anybody noticed that vigorous prenatal hiccuppers are less prone to be spit-up babies? Our kids hardly spit up at all...ds3 especially...and I wondered if it might be because of stronger tummy/diaphragm/throat control developed by hiccups.

Ive only felt clear hiccups once, I believe around 16-18 weeks though I dont remember writing it down... it was the morning of a doctors appointment but since Ive had to go to the doctor so often... I couldnt pinpoint lol<br><br>
Im starting to worry now and then when I dont feel kicks and have to remind myself... anterior placenta means I WONT feel kicks like I did with the other two. It just gets so worrisome to only feel them in one area and nowhere else, you know?<br><br><br>
As for spitting up, my belief was that breastfed babies tend to spit up far less than formula fed (for example, they arent filling their tummy with air like formula babies can)

This baby hasnt stopped hiccuping since 13 weeks. It was the first for sure movement I felt and since then they've only gotten stronger. The worst is when he's head or bottom down and hiccups right on my bladder or cervix. Oh and Im pretty sure the hiccups hack him off a bit, sometimes I swear he has a back arching hissy fit after some of the stronger hiccups. LOL

Mine definitely has the hand-waving/grabbing (oddest feeling), but no hiccups yet. My daughter hiccuped CONSTANTLY, so it's kind of surprising.

That's true, but even breastfed babies spit up SOME (or a lot, depending on the baby). I've had three boys now that NEVER spit up. And all of them (with the exception of ds1, though with twins it wasn't easy to tell) have been crazy-intense hiccuppers in utero.<br><br>
(To give you an example of how little they spit up, our first pediatrician insisted we weren't burping them correctly if they never had spit up. Seriously. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> And she was all about breastfeeding, too, so it wasn't a formula bias. I've always wondered if maybe the hiccups toned the areas that gave our boys better spit-up control.)

...wow mine never spit up and my doctor just told me it was because they breastfed.

My first didn't spit up at all until she started nursing every 4 hours instead of every two. Then she would spit it ALL up soon after. After 2 days, she went back to nursing on one side, every other hour and stopped spitting up. I<br>
Ds spit up nasty chunky green goo. It turned out I couldn't eat wheat (and he still can't). When I didn't eat wheat, he didn't spit up.<br><br>
Dd2 rarely spit up. A bit in the beginning, but very, very rarely after that.<br><br>
None of them were hiccupers. I actually WANTED to feel that, but didn't with any of them.<br><br>
I've felt it once with this baby a month or two ago. Very strange sensation.
