It seems that everyday-night the baby seems to get the hiccups. I am 33 weeks pregnant and everything is normal, it has been a great pregnancy. I read that hiccups could be related to the umbilical cord being knotted, or clotted. Just want to be sure everythings okay.
When I was pregnant my baby had the hiccups 3-4 times a day for 15 minutes at a time. I too read it could be a problem with the umbilical cord. I now have a healthy 3 month old little boy. He still gets the hiccups a lot. I am sure everything is fine with your baby. Good luck.
when i was pg with my son my ob said that hiccups are a sign that they are learning how to take in breaths and suck and swallow.....they drink the amniotic fluid and just like normal people they can get their system out of wack.
i did hear a while ago that if it suddenly makes a significant increase in how often then bring it up with the doc.
but if it is concerning you bring it up anyway.

I've never heard of that the umbilical cord being wrapped a sign from hiccups....My daughter had them from about 7 months on and the umbilical cord wasn't wrapped...After she was born she got the hiccups a lot too it was cute. Try not to worry I don't think the hiccups are a sign of the cord wrapped.
