  • my son had them a lot for the first 3 months, even my friend told me that I should see a doctor, but I wasn't worried and hid pediatrician said it was very common, besides I always felt his hiccups when he was inside of me, it was so uncomfortable specially at night, I'd rather feel kicks and moves than feeling those hiccups, because they just keep on tickling you and will not go away.


    anyways it will go away evetually. and if you're really concerned talk to his pediatrician about it.

  • Katiebears89:

    it feels like the baby's kicking very softly in a rhythmitic pattern. kind of like butterfly''s in your stomach. it really tickles. i love them. =]

    but ya i still want to know where they come from.

  • your baby is practicing breathing in your uterus... that could be one cause, another my doctor told me about is that the babies diaphram is only partly formed, it is just a muscle spasm when his muscles contract and practice for breathing. just like when you get hiccups because of muscle spasms.
