I don't think that frequent hic-ups during pregnancy are anything to worry about. Every body is different and many women experience different "symptoms" during pregnancy - it's all about how YOUR body reacts. When your contractions are regular and occurring every 4-5 minutes, you should call your doctor. However, if you feel a need to call or go to the hospital sooner - DO IT! It's better to be safe than sorry, and a woman's instinct is usually right on! Take care.

I had the same problem with hiccuping up until about a month ago. Now I have only 3 weeks left till delivery. I don't know if the hiccuping is normal, but my baby is healthy and so am I. I don't think there is anything wrong with it. ! hello
