Hiccups feel like a heartbeat?

I don't know what hiccups are supposed to feel like.  Last night I was lying on my left side and started feeling this weird rhythmic bump bump bump, much lighter than a kick and constant.  So I thought maybe pinched nerve or something and rolled to right side.  It kept happening.  Could this have been hiccups?  I've never felt them before =)

Re: Hiccups feel like a heartbeat?

  • Sure could! Cool feeling!!! My LO gets them just about every day, sometimes multiple times a day. Its almost like a muscle twitch every few seconds.
  • Sounds like hiccups to me!  It's not exactly a heartbeat, but honestly, that's the closest description I can think of.

    I don't know how far along you are, but as baby gets bigger, so do the hiccups.  Eventually you'll be able to see them.

  • Yes!  When I had DH first feel them on my belly I asked if he felt that little heartbeat feeling- that's hiccups!

  • I started noticing them about the same time as you. They've gotten more frequent for me as time goes on :)

  • That sounds like hiccups! It feels like a much stronger heartbeat in your belly. I started feeling them around this time!

  • Sounds like hiccups to me. They're a lot faster and more fluttery than grown-up hiccups, from what I've experienced. Mine usually gets them at bedtime 3-4 times a week. They're quite a bit slower than LO's heartbeat, but yeah, I could see how you might make the comparison.
