Do hiccups count as movement?

When you're tallying up movement for the hour or whatnot, do hiccups count? Just a random question :)

I would count it.  HOw can you tell the difference between him just moving around and him hiccupping?  I know when he kicks the Hell outta me, but sometimes I'll feel something weird and wonder if it was a hiccup or him just wiggling.

Mine has the hiccups ALL the time, at least 4 times a day, and its like little consistent pops in there. Kicks and pushes aren't so constant. Plus her head is way down in my pelvis, so its a very distinct feeling in my nether regions, lol.

Do they count each individual hiccup, or the set of hiccups as one?

i get that too, mine is head down, and it almost feels like a strange pulsing down there....and i just count all that movement as "one" cuz i really dont wanna try to count all the "bops"

 id count it, they are obviously still alive in there if they have hiccups.

No. hiccups don't count. You want to feel actual movement/kicks

Yes they count because it is a movement, think about when you have them your whole body moves, and each one counts as one movement.  My DS can finish a kick count in 5 seconds somedays he is hiccuping so hard that he flails afterwards, he apparently isnt a fan of hiccups
