Is this safe?

I am 30 weeks today and for a week my little guy has been getting like the hiccups almost every day and at least three times a day. I was told by my sister in law who has had three kids that it is the hiccups. It feels like this faint rhythmic heartbeat like feeling in my belly so she told me its the hiccups, which makes sense the way it feels. Is it safe for him to have the hiccups that much?

  • Yes. I asked my doctor about it with my first, and he said it was something to do with the nervous system developing. Basically, it's normal and GOOD.
