Baby hiccups during pregnancy?
Many pregnant women wonder what their baby is doing when they feel those rhythmic movements later in pregnancy. Most are surprised to learn their baby has the hiccups! That is right, many babies have the hiccups while they are in the womb and some babies have the hiccups multiple times per day. But, what causes this and why do babies hiccup in the womb anyway? There has not been an overwhelming amount of research on fetal hiccupping in the womb, although there is some speculation as to why it happens. First of all, only more mature fetuses hiccup in the womb because their central nervous system is adequately developed in order to allow this to happen. It is believed that the fetus breathes in amniotic fluid or drinks it. When this happens and the amniotic fluid enters and exists the fetus lungs then the diaphragm contracts and hiccups results. Fetal hiccups appear to be extremely normal and almost all moms will feel the babies hiccups at least once if not on a regular basis.

How can you tell if your dog has hiccups?
My female puggle gets hiccups, its just like as if & when we get hiccups, but not that loud! for example she will be sitting there & then start to get hiccups and since her mouth is closed her head goes back (kinda like when one sneezes) and her belly expands and you hear a slight hiccup, it will happen a few times in a row. She did it more frequent when she was a puppy and now it rarely happens.
