I think they do as when I had to go on the baby heartbeat monitor at the hospital I also had to press a button everytime I felt movement and when baby had the hiccups they told me to keep pressing everytime!
When I was hooked up the monitor at the hospital they told me to click the button everytime baby moved as well as hiccuped!
I swear I feel more hiccups then movements!! I timed it yesterday and the baby had hiccups for almost 3 hours out of the day and that was a quiet day!
When I went into be monitored before I got induced I was told not to count hiccups when counting movements, it also said that it doesn't count as a movement on all the leaflets they gave me. If you are worried abotu movements call your midwife and they may tell you to go in to be monitored, best to put your mind at rest.
