  • They told me that it's the baby putting pressure on the placenta and the placenta is pulsating. They said it's normal. This is probably the same thing. Hiccups def. feel different.

  • it might be your placenta being attached in the front. Mine was when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was constantly pulsating!!
