Hick Ups?

I've been getting these heart-beat like feelings in the lower part of my stomach. It feels like constant tapping or beating. It gets so fast that I actually think that it is the heart beat and something is wrong. Is this how hick ups feel? I dont wanna freak myself out everytime it happens. It usually happens just before I fall asleep at night.

  • Yes my dd hiccuped as well. Its so funny and she will probably do it alot after she is born too. It doesn't hurt them at all and they don't really know what causes it.

  • Sounds like hiccups to me. Sometimes they are slow, at times fast, lasting anywhere from five minutes to twenty. It happens to me right before bedtime too!
