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?

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
