Am 17wks pregnant, hearing my babys heartbeat almost everyday, my last us was 6 weeks ago.Is hearing heartbeats consider a gd sign that baby is doing ok?

Congrats..: I assume when you say that hearing the baby's heartbeat every means you have a doppler-like device which can magnify the sound? Otherwise, even with a stethoscope you are not likely to hear the heartbeat at this stage. If u lucky to have such a device, hearing the regular heartbeat is a good sign! make sure u keep yourself healthy, follow-up regularly. Again, congrats and good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least.. Very nervous?

Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around.The hiccups are unrelated.I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts.C-section is often needed. ...Read more
