Is it normal for my unborn baby to be hiccupping?

Q: Is it normal for my unborn baby to be hiccupping?

A: Hiccupping in utero is very common, but it can certainly look and feel strange the first few times it happens -- like your belly is twitching or having little spasms! Sometimes, you can even see it take place during an ultrasound.

Generally, babies start to get hiccups after 15 weeks; some may have them several times a day, while others never get them at all. Rest assured, a bout of the hiccups is not nearly as uncomfortable for an unborn baby as it can be for an infant.
