Is my baby hiccuping?

I'm in the 3rd trimester and I feel a weird new feeling inside my belly- it's not the normal kicking I'm used to - it feels like a heart beating inside or something and it happens for like 1 or 2 mins constantly every second.

What is going on lol

  • Yep that's the baby hiccuping. Mine gets them about 4-5 times a day and it's a rhythmic "beat" and she'll have them for a couple minutes.

  • probably. it's very consistent / rhythmic, then it's most likely hiccuping.
