Baby's hiccups

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and just started feeling my baby's hiccups last week. I feel them at least 5 times per day. Is it normal to feel them so often? I don't think I felt them this often with my son.

  • Yes, I remember when my 1st baby got them, it was hilarious she'd shake the heck out of me. But yes it's normal, the baby has really good lungs!

  • Oh yeah it's normal. Thats when i started feeling my little man have the hiccups and they were atleast five times a day. Now that im almost 27 weeks he doesnt as much as he did then. Its normal though no need to worry.

  • Completely normal. My DD had them a lot more then 5 x a day and once she was born she would get them a lot to. The baby is just fine.

  • 22 weeks is kind of early for that, have you let your doctor know you're already experiencing this?

  • No I have an appointment a week from today. I think maybe I can feel them now because I know what to feel for since this is my second pregnancy. My sister is two weeks ahead of me with her second pregnancy and she has been feeling them for a few weeks too.
