    So funny... I was just googling this earlier!! I THINK I can tell since I know he has been head-down primarily. I am feeling hiccups very low like above my pubic bone, and sometimes they feel like they are in my butt lol. I also tend to feel them to one side or the other. But other times it feels like they are whole body hiccups and it's like my whole belly bounces.

    I was feeling them at my pubic bone earlier.. but I also feel them (occasionally) up top my belly.. so was wondering.. I mean there has to be a correlation, right??

    My doula said to me once when I said I couldn't figure out which way my baby was, "Butts don't hiccup." She got hiccups so often in utero...but to me they always felt way low down- which didn't make sense since she was breech! My doula and I had a running joke during my pregnancy about me having a baby who hiccups with its butt.

    But if you ever watch newborn babies, sometimes when they hiccup, they kick their feet at the same time. Maybe this is what you are feeling up top? Sometimes I feel the hiccups with the babe's whole body like I said above. I have to really pay attention, but I might feel them at the same time at the top and bottom of my belly. It is mostly at the bottom of my abdomen, in my butt, or to the side.

    I agree--my baby is confirmed by my mw three times in a row now to be head down and I do usually feel her hiccups down low but every once in a while I feel them where her butt is (and all else feels the same, not like she's turned)--I am 100% sure they do get full-body hiccups sometimes.

    So if your question is can you tell based on one hiccuping session, I would say probably not, but can you tell based on overall patterns? More likely. IME, anyway!

    The way I can tell where the baby is sometimes is the round smooth part is either the bum or head and if you press down on the head it bobs.

    Maybe because I am a chubs, but I really seriously cannot tell for the life of me what body part is where. My upper belly is nice and hard for the most part.. but sometimes it is down low, too. Sometimes down low gets squishy.. I really just have NO clue!

    Yeah, the bobbing thing never helped me. And having squish has nothing to do with it--I have what my DH calls a fake Hollywood belly and I still can't tell AT ALL without a lot of professional help. Well, I can now only because it's felt the same since about 34 weeks and my mw has confirmed three times that her head is down, so that big bump up on the top right has to be her butt, and all the zoomy things and pushing/kicks on the left have to be feet and such. But in between reassurances of her position I still get nervous because the bumps just don't add up to what it seems like I should feel when imagining a baby in there. If I didn't have this perfectly normal 20 week ultrasound sitting right here in front of me, I'd swear she had two heads, eight legs, and a prehensile bottom.
