I read that around 29 weeks they start practicing to breath so they start hiccuping more because of that.

My baby always sleeps during u/s lol. They had to literally squish me to death on my last u/s just to get the baby to wake up, lol. I never noticed hiccups with my DS.

im 26 weeks and have felt them for a 2 or 3 weeks now, but i felt this baby super early as well so it could be his position making it easier.

i was able to feel all my kids by 24 wks this child i swear i felt it around 21-22 24 now and it has a few (like 15maybe) then it stops then comes back 2-3 more times throughout the day

i was reading on my app for babycenter that they start practice breathing /swallowing around 23 wks and can experience hiccups
