    Default Hiccups and Position

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if you all have noticed anything as far as where hiccups are and baby's position. I feel the hiccups up VERY high under my chest bone and am not sure if that means that the baby is breech or not. I feel punches or maybe kicks (not sure which really) feels like my uterus is a punching bag, doesn't hurt but it's just...kinda of like you see kangaroos boxing? (in cartoons maybe lol) and that's how it feels above my navel. The baby wouldn't be able to kick that fast right??

    Is it getting kind of late for the baby to turn if it hasn't already? I never had to worry about this in my other pregnancies as the entire time they liked to be head down.

    you can look up belly mapping, I think it's called to figure out baby's position based on hiccups, kicks, etc. My boys were all head-down from about 28 weeks and I felt the hiccups mid to low on my side.
    I think after the first baby they can turn pretty late. GL. I hope baby is headdown when s/he needs to be.

    I'm having fun watching all you ladies. I can't believe how close you are!
    big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
    middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo
    baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
    8.16.12 & 12.16.12

    TTA, but would welcome a surprise

    Even if baby's head is down I think you could feel the hiccups high up, i used to feel them from both ends ( sort of like she'd hop with every hiccup), until Baby dropped down into my pelvis. Also Baby can turn at any point up until delivery (I'm sort of counting on this ATM) but most babies do by 34/35 weeks.

    It could also indicate the baby is transverse right now. Usually you feel the hiccups at the back of the baby's neck or upper back. I was just talking to my mw about hiccups and position today, and she said that usually the baby turns when its size forces it to turn. If you have a Doppler, your can always find the hb to give you a better idea. Again the hb will be strongest through the baby's upper back.

    Thank you!

    I am sure the baby is transverse though I cannot find the head. I can feel thr body going across and kicks high and low woth also punvhes on thr other side now. I felt an elbow or knee and it is soooo cool. I push it down and he pops it back out. It could be a foot or hand i guess. He is so responsive!

    I am going to check out baby mapping.

    Thanks!
