Doctor insights on: Im nine months pregnant and the baby is having lots of hiccups
What are the signs of fetal cord compression? Baby has had hada lot of hiccups and moved rather excessively. I'm 29w3d pregnant.
Fetal cord: With all the kicking and acrobatics a baby does during pregnancy, you might wonder why cord accidents aren't more common. The answer is that a normal umbilical cord is thickly coated in a substance called wharton's jelly. This makes the cord very slippery and protects against the cord being compressed by the normal movements of the baby. You should discuss with your OB to relieve your anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm pregnant a little more than 2 months an I get hiccups a lot what is the cause and what could I take to get rid of them.? I get the hiccups daily
Hiccups are extremely common in pregnancy. The reasons are due to the increasing amount of air breathed in and out during pregnancy, thus making hiccups more likely to occur. Also acid reflux, common in pregnancy as well contributes as well. The fact that you have them daily could mean you have another issue going on on, possibly a throat or nasal issue (i.e. Post nasal drip). Therefore you should have your primary care provider examine you and further evaluate another possible cause of these daily hiccups other than pregnancy.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Anything that makes you gassy or gives you hiccups can also affect the baby - try limiting stress, caffiene & gassy foods. ...Read more
Benign variation: Hiccups have been explained as a spontaneous nerve discharge triggering the breathing muscle to tighten in a cycle like a heart beat. Some have suggested the stomach of the newborn rubs the diaphram and triggers the pattern, and that with age the stomach moves away lessening the problem. The most active cases have them before birth. I know of no treatment with any value. ...Read more

I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant is it normal for my baby to have hiccups alot? Or is it something I should be worried about?
Quite common: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach with the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth. Once the child grows longer & the stomach can drop away from the diaphragm the frequency declines. It bothers mom's more than the baby. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
