Can a baby have a seizure in the womb? I think my baby has hiccups but sometimes I feel it 2 3 times daily and they also sometimes feel a bit too fast

In brief: Doubtful

I have never heard of a fetus having seizures in the womb a mom can feel.
Ask your doctor. Hiccups on the other hand are very common and can happen multiple times a day and can feel fast. If you are healthy and all is well-don't worry....Remember common things are common. It is most likely hiccups.
