Why Does My Baby Hiccup In The Womb?

Usually noticeable in your second or third trimester, fetal hiccups are a normal reflex preparing the fetus's lungs for a healthy respiratory function after birth. In addition, it could also be a sign of the development of suckling and gasping patterns. However, seek medical care if bouts of hiccups occur daily after 28 weeks of pregnancy, greater than 4 times per day.

Why Does Your Baby Move At Night In The Womb?

Every baby is unique! Some babies literally sleep all day and move at night when you are asleep, whereas others seem to be moving all the time. But, it is also possible that you just notice your baby’s movements more at night as it is easier to feel the baby move when you are relaxed and lying down than when you are walking, standing, or occupied with other things.
