  • Of course! Very normal. When I was pregnant I knew about hiccuping in the womb, but I didn't realize that it can happen consistently, almost rhythmically, and it freaked me out. I thought it would just be random, like when we hiccup. But nope, it can feel like like he tapping his little foot to a beat or something, and last for hours!!

  • Yes, my little man did that which was fine till the end and it would make him mad and he would kick me! Lol, he was 21 1/2 inches at birth so he was low on space in there and those kicks HURT! lol

  • Absolutely. My daughter used to have a hiccup fest EVERY NIGHT! I thought it was so cute, but at the end it drove me nuts. I'm 20 weeks with my second, and haven't felt any yet.
