It I'd lovely, but I agree not at 4am, which is when DD's hiccups tend to begin!

When did you start feeling said hiccups? I'm 20 weeks now and can distinguish between kicks/punches and more general wriggles, but not sure I've ever felt a hiccup. Sounds very, very cute, though!

escuse i have been feeling hiccups since about 26 weeks iirc. but this is my 3rd dc, so wouldn't be suprised if you didn't feel anything like it for a while yet.

also depends how lo is lying. if she is posterior i hardly feel a them but when she has her back down my side i can feel everything!

Oh, I had this all the time. Maybe 5, 6 times a day every day.

She is now six months old and I had to get up with her at 4am this morning as she had the hiccups...

She still gets them loads.

Gripe water is the thing, cures them instantly (when the baby is actually here obviously)

How can you tell the difference between a hiccup and a swift kick? confused

Could see DH's hand moving on my bump last night (am 25 weeks) with a series of sharpish movements, could that have been hiccups or would you not feel/see those from the outside?

My baby had them all the time when I was pregnant, he continued to get them all the time after he was born too, until about 16 weeks old! We have so many videos of him hiccupping!

Jeelypiece - a hiccup is the same movement, small and jerky, repeated over and over again, and it really does feel like your bump has hiccups.
Oh gosh I miss my hiccupy bump... he's currently trundling around upstairs with his toy wheelybug while his dad runs his bath.

Arr the hiccups. He gets them everyday. Sometimes it's cute other times it's just plain annoying, it's like "ahh mummy's trying to sleep sweetie" bless him
