Had my baby got the hiccups in my bell?

OK, am 34 weeks with DC2 but it's been such a long time between DCs, I seem to remember that a rythmic thump, thump (bit like a heart beat) is the baby having hiccups. Does this ring true with anyone?

I remember that DC1 had hiccups really frequently in the final trimester but I'm just not sure if I remember what it felt like. blush

Yes! It's like being poked by a mouse with a stick from the inside. Baby hiccups so cute. Congrats!

Yes! my first was a hiccuper and still is now he is nearly 7!

Oh good, Thanks milkwas...... lets hope it doesn't meant this one will have reflux again then! G

Yes! It's so cute. I recognised his hiccups when he came out :-)

My hiccupper is nearly 4 and still gets them if she laughs a lot!

Thanks guys. Can't believe you recognised them meringue!! :-) Yes, it is quite sweet isn't it.

The midwife told me that hiccups were the sign of a healthy baby. Don't know if that's another one of those made up things!

Dd1 was a hiccuper. My belly used to move with it. I couldn't feel her moving weirdly, but she had hiccups every day, so knew she was fine.

I had this both times, especially at night x

I'd forgotten all about hiccups! DD now 3 had them all the time, and still does! This time I'm 33 weeks and haven't had them as of yet, they were fun too!

It was both my babies' hobby when they were "in". So cute!

I was told it means baby is breathing which is a very good thing obviously! !

My was a serial hiccuper in tummy and after and had awful silent reflux. I hope that's not the case for you x

DD used to hiccup if I was sitting quietly in a boring meeting, I loved it, it was a good distraction. Some days she got them 4 or 5 times. She didn't hiccup half so much after she was born though - and didn't suffer reflux at all.

I'm 35 weeks tomorrow and my baby is getting them all the time, I love sitting watching my belly jump up and down, it's so cute smile
