In-utero hiccups

I am 37 weeks pregnant and unlike my 1st pregnancy, my baby has been having hiccups this time around. I have noticed that these have increased quite a bit in the past week or so

Should I be worried?

No, as long as the movements are good, there is nothing to worry about.

Hi there anon. To be honest with you the inutero hiccups were the worst thing of my entire pregnancy Lol. They were really bad with my daughter,from about 7 months she' d have them 4 to 5 times a day. Every single day. And they' d last for half an hour sometimes.
I' d get so irritated sometimes. After birth it stayed the same and her hiccups have only started getting less now and she' s 4 months already.good luck girl and don' t worry it' s perfectly normal. And good luck with the birth.
