Question:

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and my baby keeps getting the hiccups. Is this normal?


PRouD MoTHeR oF LXe aND DKe - 2007-06-13 21:50:24 - Pregnancy

My baby has had the hiccups about twice a day for the last week. Is this normal? And if it is, can it be a sign of anything? He'll normally get the hiccups for about a 20 minutes to a half an hour. I was also wondering something else. I know it is normal to have tingling sensations while in late pregnancy, but I keep having the tingling in the middle of my bicep in less than a dime size spot. It is not constant but in the same spot everytime. Is this normal? And is there anyway that I can get him off of the nerves?



Best Answer:

its the babies bodies way of preparing it to suckle or breastfeed, its a reflex the baby will need to nurse properly, be happy

I dont know about the tingling, But the hiccups are a very good sign, its showing that your baby is taking practice breaths, gettin his/her lungs ready to come out into the real world. i've heard its the babies way of saying its okay!! Be happy to feel them. Congratulations!

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and my baby gets the hiccups ALL the time. They last a while .. way longer than any hiccups I've ever had. The doctor said it's perfectly normal .. and it's not nearly as annoying for them as it is for us :) Also, about the nerve .. whenever I lay on my left side .. I get that exact same twitching feeling, so I sleep on my right side. It's just the baby positioning themselves on our nerves. Nothing to be concerned about :) congrats on the baby! good luck! God bless!

Yes its normal, my son would get them everyday especially at night when I was TRYING to fall asleep(impossible). But no nothing is wrong, enjoy.

Sorry, I had to laugh. I had twins that had the hiccups. If one didn't have them, it seemed like the other one did. My Dr. told me it was nothing to worry about. I'd still ask on your next visit though - you should be down to once a week now, right? My boys were born completely healthy, no problems. ( I don't know about the tingling sensation. I don't remember that at all. ) Only five weeks to go, mom!! Good luck, congratulations and God bless!

The hiccups are very normal the baby is swollowing the amniotic fluid. I read the Pregnancy Center book that hiccups are your baby's way of saying "hey I am here and I am healthy" So you little boy is just showing you everything is working well. I don't know a whole lot about your second question but after reading it I would thing that if you could get him to move maybe by laying on a differant side than is normal for you or even pushing or poking at him. Unfortunately I would think that at this point he has hit a nerve in your spine and He is just going to give you heck from now until delivery. Best of luck and congratulations.

Hiccups are normal. My daughter constantly had the hiccups towards the end of my pregnancy. Most pregnant women have also felt a rhythmic tapping which means that the fetus has hiccups. This probably helps to exercise the diaphragm and chest muscles so they will be functional at birth (Crelin, 1973). I believe the tingling sensations can be normal. If you feel the tingling and want to get him to move of the nerves try doing pelvic tilts.

Hi Mama to be! Not sure about the tingling either as I didn't have that. I was pregnant 3 times and with all 3 pregnancies my babies all had the hiccups and it was later in the pregnancies also. I think we only notice it more b/c they are bigger then too. When they are tiny we really can't feel it. Knowing what I know now about all 3 of my kids it was their way of letting me know that they'd be a pain in my gut allllllllllllllllllllllll the time! haha No, I love being a mom.........the only thing in my life that I am truly proud of and haven't screwed up! Good Luck with that baby!

yes its normal b cuz when a baby is inside a womans body it creates more gas b cuz of the space the baby is takin up and ur body has to adjust 2 the babys size just drink a lot of water it will help

I can't say much about the tingling on your arm, but I will tell you that I too get tingling only on my left leg. I would guess it's normal, but ask your Dr. if your worried about it. As for the hiccups, my baby also gets the hiccups a whole lot. I read about this, and it is actually not bothersome to the baby as it is to us when we get hiccups. It is believed that the fetus breathes in amniotic fluid or drinks it. When this happens and the amniotic fluid enters and exists the fetus lungs then the diaphragm contracts and hiccups results. They only do this later on in pregnancy becuase their central nervous system is adequately developed, so this was not happening earlier on. Just lay back and enjoy feeling your babys' movements! Not all women feel this incredible hiccup movement, so lets consider ourselves lucky! Congrats!
