QOTD 4/3

How often does your baby seem to get hiccups?

The last two weeks or so, I swear my LO gets them 2-3 times a day and they last forever. Poor kid! Depending on which direction he's facing, I can barely feel them most of the time.

I don't really notice them if she does. I never noticed with DS either.

What does it feel like?

I've only noticed them once so far and I'm not positive that's what it was. It was rhythmic so I'm thinking it was.

For me, it's like very small movements that are rhythmic (like Heather said) and last a while. He usually doesn't kick or move otherwise so it's easy to miss, but if I put my hand on my belly, I get a soft tap...tap...tap...tap.
My other kids would only get them for like 3-5 minutes at a time so I only remember feeling them a handful of times, but this baby's are hard to miss because he gets them for so long.

Not often. I think with my other kids, I only noticed 1-2 times. So far I haven't noticed any at all this time.

She gets them every time I eat anything, I get a rhythmic tapping on my pelvic bone, she is going to come out with a bruised forehead I think.

Everyone once in awhile it feels like she is shaking (like getting a chill). Of course my over-reactive brain worries it is seizure.

Em gets them 4-5 times a day and they last 20-40 minutes. They bother her and she will squirm away from them after a bit and throw her head back and so I feel the head in my pelvis and her belly on my hip. She's just like her sis, el would always throw her hands up with every hiccup and squirm away from them

Some times three times per day, sometimes not for a few days. Definitely notice them since DD had them so often I knew exactly what to look for. Also the way I guessed this one was head down (which got confirmed by midwife today) since I feel them in the same place as I did with DD who I knew was head down at 28 weeks.
