Hiccups???

So I'm loving this pregnancy even with the icky stuff because anytime I feel my son move, it just absolutely melts my heart and reminds me of what I've gone through to get here and make me extremely appreciative.

I have been looking forward to hiccups as crazy as that sounds and don't know what I was expecting - maybe big movements like when we get them, but I Googled it and found out that what I've been feeling is probably it. Kind of a twitch or spasm that lasts for a few minutes and for me, they are usually down lower in my pelvic area. Is that what its like for any of you??? I read that when you feel them, its just another sign of a healthy pregnancy so that makes me happy!

I'm getting so anxious to meet this little one and can't believe in less than 15 weeks I will!!! :)

it's funny - as the baby gets bigger, the hiccups episodes are definitely bigger and kind of funny. With both DD and this boy, the bigger I get, the more my belly moves when there's a hiccup episdoe! It's so funny to me.

I've been wondering what hiccups would feel like. Thanks for posting this, Ann! I get some flutter/tickles down low very briefly. They don't last more than a few seconds so I'm doubting if those are hiccups. How cool that you are feeling that! I love every little thing I feel, even the hard kicks. Each movement reminds me that there is a little boy in there just waiting to meet us. How exciting that soon we will meet our sons!!

Yep...those are hiccups alright! Tiny, rythymic movements, almost like a slight knocking feeling. Mine are mostly lower down too, but occasionally they'll be up higher depending on what position she's in. What'll you see him making breathing movements...those are so awesome!

I can't believe you're only 15 weeks away from delivery too. Time's been moving so fast! :)

I absolutely loved it when my LO got hiccups. Like you they started as just a very slight repitive feeling, almost like a heartbeat feelin that went on for bout 5 mins or longer sometimes but towards the end they get much bigger until, I remember at about 37 weeks gettin them, they were so big my whole belly was jumpin for a good 10 mins! Even now, at 9 months old, my little monkey still often gets the hiccups!
