Fetal Hiccups

Anyone else feel like their baby has the hiccups all the time?? Mine seems to have them several times a day now. It's strange because I never once felt them with my 1st DS. I'm not saying that he never had them, but I never could tell or feel if he did. I always wondered what it would feel like for him to get them. So it's funny that now this baby has them several times a day. It is very cute and in a way it's actually kind of helpful because it helps me be able to tell what position he is in when he's having them.

Nice! Aiden had them frequently. This child? Just a handful of times total. It does help me determine her current position since right now I jokingly call her octopus baby because she goes through spurts where she moves so much I can't tell her position any longer!

3-4 times a day! This guy gets them a LOT! yesterday was 4 times that I counted. And I can also tell where he is, but he's been head down since 29 weeks.

This guy get's them in the evenings. It's actually one of the funniest feelings I think because it tickles!

Kostas had the hiccups almost on a daily basis from this point until the end. He was also head down from 26 weeks on. I have only felt a few hiccups with Cricket and he has been spending most of his time transverse. I don't know if there is a correlation but interesting nonetheless.
