What does a fetal hiccup feel like?

That would be really nice to know right now, i've had some weird movements, i won't get into that, just tell me what hiccups feel like?

thanks! :)

  • My son was a big fan of hiccuping, so I know exactly how to describe the feeling.

    Feels just like a spasm muscle twitch.

  • I always felt mine when I was around 7 months but it was just like my belly was jumping. It was really funny. Kinda like a pulsating feeling.

  • The best way I can describe it is that it feels like either a lot of really quick small kicks.. OR like a really fast heartbeat that you can feel.. thats how i described it when i had no idea what was going on. i didn't find out that is what it was until I had a NST and I kept pressing the kick button.. and the dr was like "oh no no..those are hiccups, not kicks" LOL
