Over the last couple days my baby has had the hiccups so much.. 3-5 times a day for like 10 minutes.

I called my OB cause a couple people said it can be a symptom of a cord problem... A couple other people said its completely normal and not to worry. Well my OB said its probably fine and some babies gets hiccups more than others.. My couple friends said I shouldn't trust her and get a second opinion.

How often does your baby get hiccups?
Do you guys think I should worry?

Well I'm not sure if my baby was having hiccups or even if this was my stomach - but I think I have been feeling her move a ton over the weekend! Sometimes kicking several times in a 10 minute period.

I'm not sure exactly why she is getting so active and the kicking seems to be stronger lately too - but it's nice to know she is active.

Sorry I can't be of more help

E has the hiccups a lot. Yesterday she had to long episodes of them. Also her cord looks just fine. I tend to agree with your doctor, some babies just get the hiccups. DS also had them a lot when I was pregnant with him.

I have never heard it "could" be a bad thing. Moose had the hiccups constantly!! Seriously, at least 10 to 15 different times a day. Finn would get them too, although not as much. Maybe 5 times a day.

Layne gets hiccups like 3 to 4 times a day and they last a long time. He is fine. We have to get everything checked out once a week and my doctor said that the hiccups are normal.

I freaked too with Mia's pregnancy, she would get them 10-15 times a day too! Dr. said it was completely normal, but I freaked too because of hearing it might be cord related. Selena only got them like 3-5 times a day. Both girls are perfectly healthy and born with no cord problems, just extremely LONG cords by the dr.'s standard. He said the longer the better, gives a nice pull and less likely to get tight when it does wrap around something!

I think it's normal. If your really worried about it you could always ask your OB to do an ultrasound to look at the cord.

DS got them all the time when I was pregnant with him. I had no idea it "could" be a bad thing. If you feel strongly about it I would get it checked out.

I was always told hick ups were a good thing. I swear with Madison I was told it helps build the lungs because of the force of them.
Madison had hicks ups all the time and this baby gets them at night.



If you think this is bad wait till baby gets here they have hick ups all the time and you just feel so bad for them.

This is going to come out so wrong... but im grumpy and very pregnant..lol

I say you need to get a second opinion of friends and the OB is just fine..lol
Sounds to me like your friends are stressing you out and that is the last thing you need.

If you are worried you did the right thing to call but take a lot of what "friends" say with a grain of salt.

Lily had the hiccups a lot! Most of her waking ours most days really. And guess what? She is a perfectly healthy, happy, currently sound asleep 5 month old who gets several episodes of hiccups every day. I say it's nothing to worry about. Get her checked out just for your own piece of mind if you want to, but don't stress over it.

I think babies do tend to get hiccups a lot in there, especially at this stage, because I have heard that the hiccups is the baby developing their ability to breath...diaphram related and all. As that diaphram develops they get the hiccups. That's what I heard. Having said all that though, I would ask for an u/s just to put your mind and heart at ease....just to make sure!
