Fetal hiccups increasing at 36 weeks, could there be something wrong?

My baby boy has had the hiccups pretty much everyday for as long as I can remember, usually 2 times a day.. The past few days he has had them atleast 5 times in 1 day sometimes 20 minutes apart. I notice it's when i'm trying to get situated in bed tossing and turning he will get them, I have read that fetal hiccups can be a sign of a cord problem, does anyone know if this is true OR does their baby have hiccups this much... I lost my last baby at 20 weeks to an umbilical cord accident at 20 weeks and I don't want to overlook a cord problem this late in my pregnancy, I'm 36 weeks.................Thanks and God bless

My baby has also been having the hiccups sometimes 3,4 and even 5 times a day lately.  I've counted 3 times today already. I was wondering if this was normal too. i'm 37.3 wks today.

Just wait until you have him in your arms and his hiccups are shaking his whole body. :)  My boy also hiccupped a lot in utero and it hasn't changed.  He was hiccuping and nursing the other day and pulling up on the nipple about an inch with each hic.

mine is a constant hiccup factory.. they have increased as well.. I cant put my glass of water on my tummy anymore.  even people who are shopping near me can tell.. its amazing. you would think with that much jostling everytime he hiccups that it would be painful.. and it seems his entire body is fracked when he does it.. but.. im sure its normal.. just practicing for the outside world..

They are good the DR. has told me, the babies are practicing breathing. With my 1st pregnancy, my DS had the hiccups 3 times a day! I felt bad for him but it's completely normal!!! He came out and had the hiccups a lot too! Poor things, lol... :)

I hadn't dialated any at my 35 1/2 wk appt. but i go back this coming Monday and they'll start checking every wk she said. I'm pretty sure i'm loosing pieces of my mucus plug so i hear that means your dialating, so i most likely am. How about u? i think i read u r 36 wks...
and they don't know what happened to her baby.
