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

Hiccups are caused when you have contractions of the diaphragm. The diaphragm is what makes your lungs take in oxygen and expel it.

No. Neither have anything to do with pregnancy.

Hiccups are caused by irritation of the diaphragm. This is caused by hormones and reduced space from pregnancy.
