not sure if my LO had hiccups earlier (28 weeks). it was tiny and rhythmic and regular, and it felt almost as if I had trapped a pulse between my belly and thigh, if that makes sense! it didn't last long either.

could that be hiccups? what do they feel like?!

Yes, it sounds like hiccups to me. The first time it happened to me I freaked out, thinking baby was having some kind of fit. She used to get them nearly every night, so I got used to the rhythmic pulsings after a while.

Sounds like hiccups. My dd had them a lot. I used to hold my breath for her!

It does sound like hiccups and don't be surprised if they get stronger as you go on, at 37 wks and for a while now my whole belly moves when it's happens which is a few times a day now.

Mine feel like the baby is doing a little lunch, one after the other with a 4 second gap x
