Can fetuses sneeze?

I know babies can hiccup, but can they sneeze in the womb? I swear to god my baby sneezed the other day while i was driving and it almost made me pee myself...

  • Hahaha! I think they have reflexes that start in utero, the super quick startle-like reflex is the Moro reflex.
  • Well they can pee . Soooooo....

  • Doubt it. Probably just a reflex. They yawn and hiccup but never have I ever heard of a baby sneezing in the uterus.
  • I'm pretty sure the answer is yes. The baby snot is what creates the mucous plug & snot like discharge.
