    Just wondered if it was normal for me to be able to feel my LO with hiccups nearly everyday?Im now 32 weeks and its feels like little jumpy movements through my belly which im sure is the baby getting hiccups.Its only been a recent thing being able to feel these movements but the OH is worried.Any advice would be great thanks.

    Mine has them all the time!! At your stage, it was 2-3 times a day!! Now it's once every 1-2 days. It's a good sign that babies lungs are maturing nicely. Just enjoy the feeling!!!

    Yep, Pip gets them too. I was at the hospital being monitored on Saturday and he had hiccups most of the way through the monitoring, the midwife said it was a good sign that he is developing well.

    I only felt them the first time maybe a week or so ago and was beginning to worry about my baby's lungs before then! Now baby is moved head down I feel them a lot more and they get stronger all the time.

    Meredith gets the hiccups EVERY night at 11pm. It never fails. But I've read that the more hiccups they get, the healthier they are! I guess it means their lungs are more developed?

    I was surprised by how fast they were when I first felt them.
