YDD had hiccups 1-2x/day for most of the 3rd tri. She gets hiccups a lot now too, and always after eating/burping. Hiccups are actually a sign of reflux, so I've read, but as long as baby is gaining weight it's no big deal.

Re: POLL: Are pre-birth hiccups related to reflux?

My understanding is that hiccups in utero are related to rapid diaphragm movement which is related to the fetus practicing breathing. This requires an intact nervous system and is notbrelated to digestion. It can be related to cord compression as well.

All three of mine had a tin of in utero hiccups, and all three have had reflux.

3 babes with hiccups, at least 3x/day with my first. No one has had reflux. Interesting theory, but doesn't apply to my babes so far.
