In brief: Depends

Fetal hiccups are very common and usually last just a few minutes.
They are rhythmic thumps that may start in the second trimester. The speed is dependent what one means by "fast or slow". If the hiccups , fetal movements, or lack of movement are concerning a patient , it is best to call your md for immediate advice.
