    It seems to be happening more regularly with me now (34 weeks) and although it lets me know he's head down, they can get on my nerves!

    How often do you ladies notice it daily? :D

    My bump seems to get them 2 to 3 times daily at least, I'm 32 weeks now and head down too, they do sometimes annoy me as they seem to be quite strong but I just try to forget about them!

    My little Bun gets hiccups on average about 6-7 times a day, sometimes more! Can I ask a really silly question... how do you know from the hiccups your LO is head down?

    Thats a good way to describe the annoying part of it! It is very much like someone won't stop tapping you, not annoying as such just irritating!

    I (well bump) get them about 2-3 times a day on average. Mostly low down in my lower abdomen but I got a bit anxious the other day as I seemed to be feeling them low down (but in my back) and at the top of bump at the same time! I thought bump had turned to breech position after being head down for ages. Luckily I've just seen my midwife and bump is still head down. Not sure why I got such a strong sensation up top that time - maybe bump was moving his/her bum to the rhythm of the hiccups!

    Does transverse mean sideways? Sorry 1st time mummy here!
    My doc and midwife told me bubs is head down so I know from that for defo but funnily enough although I do feel bubs hiccups down low I also feel them i think in bub's back? I've been told back and bum is facing up so it must be back I think!

    They're just very low down so I assume it's his head and shoulders making the jerking movement! :D
