    Madam has then for the first time - I though it was cute for about the first five mins, but now I'd like some sleep!

    Anyway to get rid of them or do I just need to wait it out??

    It's like kicks but gentler and in rhythm. I had bump pressed against DH's back and I was surprised he could feel them. But it was the regularity that makes menthink it was hiccups - seem to gave stopped now though. Just DH's snoring to contend with. Lol

    Lol - I dunno if mine was twitching, cos I'm in bed in the dark with my phone. Lol. A pluse was a good way to described it though - but no where near fast enough to be hb if that makes sense.

    I'll have to look out for that, at the moment baby just has a general rave then sleeps.

    I think maybe your OH's snoring is settling the baby in your belly lol good to know for when he/she's on the outside. Sleep with daddy!

    Hiccups are funny! The first few times I thought it was my own pulse in my belly... Really strange... My little guzzler gets them quite a lot! She got them when I was on the baby monitor at the hospital and the midwife was also laughing! :)

    Sounds like I get off lightly... They only last a couple of minutes max each time!
    I remember one time my father in law had them for over a week non stop, went to the GP and everything. Obviously stopped him from sleeping - it can happen apparently. Just hope none of our LOs get them for that long!!! :)
