    Just what the title says really - what part of your belly do you normally feel the baby's hiccups?

    I have only started to feel them (I think) over the past week and I generally feel them very low down. Baby was breech at my last appointment two weeks ago, I'm really hoping s/he will turn around. I was wondering if you can tell the position of baby from where you feel the hiccups?

    That's good to hear, thanks girls - I'm really hoping that means that LO has turned around, because that's where I'm feeling the hiccups too over the last few days.

    It's like a twitching feeling but it's rhythmic and can keep going for quite a while.

    I feel hiccups just below my belly button and based on my scan last friday baby has it's bum up near my ribs with arms and legs to one side with head just to one side below my belly button - this didn't really surprise me as I've been feeling kicks and a hard bum shape just beneath my ribs for a while now.

    Baby currently has it's hand a bit further down this evening though as I can feel smaller pushing movements just above my groin.

    I think I'm getting quite good at telling where arms and legs are now - I can definitely tell legs as I can sometimes feel the outline of them just below my ribs which is quite freaky :rofl:

    My LO is head down and I feel them right down in my lady bits, although occasionally (like tonight) I can feel bubas whole body jumping, poor little thing.

    Thanks everyone, I'm hoping that my LO has turned head down!

    It is a really strange feeling isn't it?

    Lol I often feel alot of kicking and moving around just above my bum (but more inside if you what I mean?)
    As for the hiccups, I've been feeling them on and off for the last week or so, and mine are pretty low down towards my pubic bone and LO is apparently in the cephalic position.
    Polaris, how are ya hun? :hugs:
