Very frequent hiccups... help!


I know fetal hiccups are normal but my baby gets them 6-10 per day and they last about 10-20 mins. I feel like this is a lot! I read that this could be a sign of cord entanglement and compression. I tried to contact my doctor but they keep telling me not to worry. I just want to have an ultrasound to make sure he's ok and my ob won't listen. What should I do? Does this sound concerning? I'm 27 wks.

I was worried about that with my first daughter. She did exactly as you describe and would get h8ccups so often and they would last and last. She was perfectly fine, no issues with cord. I have come to see after being on these boards for years that many have the same fears! I'd say it's a variation of normal but if you need the reassurance book a private ultrasound or go to L&d and ask them to check the baby out!

I live in a tiny town of 2000 people. The hospital is small. I've thought about calling another hospital that's two hours away to see if they can do a private scan. I'm just so anxious about this.

They don't have a L&D here and only a couple people that do ultrasounds.

I agree with the pp. Schedule a private scan if it'll make you feel better. My lo had frequent hiccups too, 5+ times a day. Turns out I did have reason to be concerned. I had a c section at 37 weeks for low amniotic fluid and concern for possible cord compression. However, she is perfectly fine and there was no mention of compression after delivery and my mw, to this day, says she was never concerned about a lot of hiccups correlating with cord compression.

Mine too has hiccups at least twice a day and they last around 20 minutes. My doctor told me not to worry and that it's normal.

I'd schedule a private scan for peace of mind.

That said my daughter was like that. She's 3.5 years old now and still gets hiccoughs all the time!
