I swear, I just seem to make kids that get the hiccups. This LO has them 3-4 times a day for about ten minutes each time. And I HATE it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I don't know how to explain it, but when I feel them start I just feel so uncomfortable. Like I want to crawl out of my own skin or something. My DS had them all the time, too. I think it might be the position. I always feel the hiccups low, like almost in my vagina low. Is low hiccups a sign of being head down?

It creeps me out, too. Mostly I just feel sorry for the baby because I know I hate having the hiccups! I think sometimes she has them in her sleep.<br><br>
If I get upset - boom, instant hiccups. Sometimes she gets them after I eat.

I can't say that I hate it when baby gets hiccups, but sometimes due to position it feels really weird and I don't care for it much. And like another poster said, I feel sorry for babe.

I actually love it. This baby has been all over the place position wise and I have a hard time mapping it sometimes because of my anterior placenta so when it gets hiccups I know exactly where it is. In the past four days it's been breech, transverse and very head down. This morning it was head down kind of oblique/transversish. At least I know it CAN get head down <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Sometimes it drives me batty but usually I just find it amusing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

With DS my midwife said that hiccups were a sign of good neurological health - it takes a healthy brain to hiccup, I guess. Now with this one, I worry when I don't feel her hiccup!<br><br>
It's always something.

maybe i'm a bit odd, but as strange as it can feel, i find it comforting. maybe it's because my other healthy babes all had the hiccups frequently, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh my gosh! Is THAT what's going on?! I swear I jumped out of bed the other night and ran and told DP that it felt like I had a huge ping pong ball bouncing around in my belly. Is that it? It's the strangest feeling!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Yes, if you feel rhythmic movement that is clearly not your heartbeat, it's the baby having hiccups.

omg...so thankful that this has not happened yet this pregnancy! It drove me to TEARS last time...as soon as I would lay down to go to sleep it would start and it was impossible to sleep through...then all night whenever I got up to pee it would start over again. It was AWFUL..lol.

My baby had them for the first time last night. It made me nuts. It's like someone standing by you and poking you over and over. I was trying to fall asleep so that didn't help.

I don't particularly like it either. It took me awhile to even realise that's what that was, since they are so fast! I don't remember having them with dd, but I probably just wasn't paying enough attention.
