do hiccups count in your movement counts??


As the title really! My lo is always EXTREMELY active and I must have hundreds of movements a day, but today seems a little quiet, only about 4 proper movements since I got up at 6.30. she just had a bout of hiccups though so dont know if that should be counted as movement aswell?x

I was told by my MW that they don't count as movement, but I don't fully understand why.
Your LO might just be having a lazy day! I hope she starts moving more soon

Hello! First time poster here so forgive me! I was also told hiccups do not count towards movements as it is an involuntary reflex and not a deliberate movement, its something they cannot control (like us when we hiccup)- even though when mine hiccups away it also rolls,jabs&wriggles (I'm a little ahead of you at 39+3)!! If you feel your bubs has not moved enough for your normal pattern or you just feel you need to check then give the Labour ward or your midwife a quick ring and ask their advice. Hopefully your LO will get busy again soon, in the meantime try all the usual suggestions (whichever works for you) - is it a while since you ate? Try cold or hot sweet drinks, a sweet snack, playing music to your bump, even some gentle pressing/prodding to see if you can feel them move away.

Apparently not because they are involuntary

Thanks for the advice. Ive just had an ice lolly which normally sets her off so we'll see. I just feel a bit silly because I am sure she will do 10 movements in the day, which is what were meant to look out for, but she usually does about 10 seperate movements before I even get out of bed!! The hiccups not counting is a bit strange but I suppose makes sense as being involutary. X

Well the ice lolly got her moving while I was eating it, but thats it so not sure if thats what its meant to do?!
Not feeling well myself, a bit sick and period pain-y. Had a bath but dont feel any better. Maybe me feeling like crap is making her quiet??x

I know on days where I don't feel so great, LO doesn't move so much. Have a quiet 10mins later and lie on sofa and try not to stress about it . Mines been quiet all morning and now it feels like it's trying to yoga in my belly!

So, while we are talking about movements......

I am pretty sure I would a change in LO's movements as it feels as if they are moving constantly 24hrs at the moment.

If it is a quiet day and I want to count...what am I looking for.....a certain number per hour/per day??

Also, if baby is kicking/rolling about constantly for 5 mins or so...that is only counted as 1 movement??

I love hiccups!!!
