I could swear I felt hiccups very very low in the left side of my pelvis while lying in bed this morning! I remember that feeling very well from my previous pregnancies, but I'm only 17 weeks today, so it seems like it may be too early. If it wasn't hiccups, though, I have to wonder what she was doing in there!<br><br>
Also, because it's too cute not to share, here's a pic of my sweet 4 year old rubbing my belly. His hand just naturally goes there a lot of the time. He's so excited about becoming a big brother after always being the baby brother! When I took this pic, he was saying, "I like your tummy, mom!" <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321458/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="321458" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321458/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 150px"></a>

I don't recall ever feeling hiccups .... my babes seem to go straight to big movements & whole body flips. I'm a bit envious of those who can feel small things like hiccups, and those babes that don't torture their mamas with big flips ... both of my children have done big - visible from the exterior - flips after 34 weeks, it's fun to watch, but very uncomfortable!<br>
That is a great photo of your son, I hope becoming a big brother is as exciting for him as he's expecting! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Thank you! I hope so, too.<br><br><br>
Mine also did the big movements, especially my daughter. She used to do this awful thing where she'd headbutt my cervix. After she was born, she would stretch and thrust her head up, and I'm sure it was the same thing I had been feeling. It was so painful!

<p>Awww...I totally forgot about the hiccups. I loved that feeling. Can't wait to feel it again. I think my firstborn got the hiccups like 3 times a day during his last 3 months in utero. It was like his own personal cute little quirk. Thankfully it didn't continue after he was born.</p>

<p>I love the feeling of hiccups! It always confuses me for awhile and then I realize what's going on.  I haven't felt them yet with this baby, though.</p>

<p>Love the big brother look! My boys are so excited to have a baby at our house (and not just while visiting cousins).</p>

It's going to be a huge change for all of us, but so far, the kids are excited. My older two are having fun trying to think of a name. <img alt="wink1.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/wink1.gif">
