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?
Forever missing my 3 angel babies. Sep 2010, Nov 2010, Jan 2011
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 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 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 baby gets hick ups alot esp after i have dinner or if i have something to drink like soda water my dr said it wasnt anything to worry about plus is so cute to feel there tiny little hick ups hope this puts your mind at ease if your dr says its ok trust them its just one of the many cute things our babys do before there born
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.
Mom to a 2 year old baby girl, 2 week old baby boy, and one in Heaven.
In loving memory of our angel baby, with us for 4 weeks. Baby went to be with God July 24th, 2009.
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!
