Fetal Hiccups Question

Anda313 posted:
I am 28 preggo and I was wondering about baby hiccups. I know that they are rhythmic motions that can be felt. I have felt rhythmic motions that would, I think, be classified as hiccups but I am not totally sure. The motions are close together and the same. Just trying to figure out if he has the hiccups or not :) :) :) I am absolutely LOVING my whole pregnancy!!!!

The baby hiccups are a whole lot closer together than "our" hiccups are. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I've actually experienced baby hiccups during a doppler, so my practicioner confirmed that they were indeed "hiccups". They are only a second or two appart usually (for me anyways). Hope that helps!

Thanks so very much!!!! They are really close together like you said and I wanted to put it in my post but thought it would sound kind of silly :) I am SO happy to know they are hiccups :) I read that they are supposed to be a sign of a healthy baby, but I cannot believe everything I read. Again, thanks so much!
