Baby has hiccups all the time !

My baby seems to have hiccups all the time - she'll have a bought of them about four times a day for last few days. Is there a reason for this? Is anything wrong? Just wondering if anything else could be causing these rhythmic regular little jumps?!

Perfectly normal.
You might find she is hiccupy when she is born too, but it is nothing to worry about.

My baby hiccups all the time (I'm at 33 weeks), especially through the night. I'm told it's perfectly normal and I find it quite reassuring, although it could be better timed. x

My baby hiccups about 4 times a day also - i have been told it's a sign of a very healthy baby who is practising breathing and only the more mature babies hiccup!!!!

Very reassuring as i also found it worrying that it was happening so much but now i love it (at nearly 38wks) as i can tell where the head is and think my baby is just very clever
