    Well last week I started to feel little bean having hiccups for the first time, cute little poping things, and my tummy even bounces with them, like a little pulse! However since starting to feel them I have found that it has hiccups every day, several times a day. In fact most of the time! Im 35weeks a the mo. Has anyone else found there bump is hiccuping this frequently? just wondered if my bub was having some sort of breathing or digestion problem?!?!

    since around 34/5 weeks i been feeling loads of hiccups it was sooo exciting as it was the first time and they are so noticeable..... if i put my hand under bump cud really feel baby jump as each hiccup came.. i dont think its any thing to worry about... just means baby is swollowing loads of amniotic fluid which is a good thing

    Hee hee - we felt our 'little bump' hiccuping for the first time on Sunday - it was soooooo cute and as you say, really obvious.

    Hope it doesn't happen in the middle of the night though - I'd never get to sleep!!

    hi Cat, that happened to me for two weeks every day sometimes 3 times a day and now i am nearly 36wks it hasn't happened half as much. Like you i was quite worried but midwife said it was normal. Its just hard coz you can't do anything for the poor little beeX

    I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange knocking from inside during week 30. I got my husband to feel it, and we ended up calling a nurse who couldn't tell us what it was and we ended up going to the hospital.
    It was of course hiccups and if anyone had even suggested the word, I might have realised that that is what it was!
    I thought the baby was having a fit.

    So I really disagree with detal hiccups being obvious - certainly at 3am!!!!

    Ava had the hiccups quite often right after she was born, but she doesn't get them very often now.

    I heard that the hiccup has very little function in people once they’re born but is a base instinct/reflex when inside the womb, the action of the hiccup can stimulate breathing by forcibly moving the babies diaphragm.
