    Hi there, this is my first post so hello to everyone nice to meet you

    :)

    I basically wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced fetal hiccups?

    about 3 days ago i noticed a rythmitic movement and couldnt work out how the baby could be kicking so reguarly, like to a beat, but then i worked out it was hiccups!!!

    now, the baby seems to have them about 2, maybe 3, times a day i found it sooo amusing and reeeally cute :lol: ..it made my little angel a bit more human and ''real'' if u kno wat i mean...

    now it was all good, until i read some stupid post on another site that said its a sign of the cord being knotted or something :wall: which made me a bit panicky, and then i read that ( by a doctor) its a great sign as it shows the baby is healthy and practising breathing and stuff so i am happy again....

    anyone care to comment???
    :D
    (by the way im one of those moms who panic about EVERY LITTLE THING) lol im a nervous wreck!!! can u tell?? lol

    ciao

    Mine gets hiccups which i believe is normal. Have not heard about the cord thing before though. Try not to worry. If you have concerns mention it to your MW next time you visit.

    Mine gets hiccups quite a lot everyday. It's the weirdest feeling...it's like a heartbeat in rhythm but my tummy jumps as she hiccups!

    I've been told it's good as the babies are swallowing the amniotic fluid which matures their lungs and gets them ready for breathing on the outside!!
