  • Your right it is funny - it's like short fast gentle multiple kicks every so often for a while. Enjoy mommy!!!!!

  • I didn't start feeling the baby hiccup until around 36 weeks. It feels just like anon said: short fast gentle kicks that come at regular intervals. It was so cool the first time! He/she will hiccup more as it gets closer to time for him/her to be born, bc the baby starts practicing the swallowing instinct by swallowing fluid, which can cause hiccups. Good luck! :)

  • almost like a softer rhythmic kick. I would sit still and see my chest jump with each hiccup. And with my son he had the hiccups pretty much every single day, lol.

  • You will know they are hiccups because they feel like they are perfectly timed little kicks. I think I felt this for the first time around like 23 weeks or so. After that first time she had hiccups everyday about 3 times a day
