    Default Hiccups!

    I have had them continuously for 12 weeks, im not kidding. It's like a cross between a hiccup and, well, a burp, though not, its just odd, and annoying. I have about 20 an hour. Doesn't matter whether im eating, lying down or shopping...they just never go away except when I finally manage to fall asleep...Some of them are violent enough to make DH jump out of his skin!

    Is this normal in pregnancy? Is there anything I can do about it?
    It's driving me, and DH mental!

    That would be so so annoying!

    Not sure about them being a pregnancy side effect but I have a sure fire way of getting rid of them! This has never faile dme. What you ahve to do is imagine that you're about to eat a hot dog (hope you're not vego!). You have to really really believe you are about to eat the hotdog. Close your eyes, and feel it in your hands, pick it up and bring it to your nose and smell it. Imagine the hotdog, with the mustard and sauce and onions and give it a good long sniff....

    Weird, I now, but it always works for me!!! Good luck!

    i was at my obstertrician today and asked if my hiccups were normal. I don't get them as often as you do but he said it's normal... but 20 per hour seems excessive.. i get them maybe twice an hour..

    Someone told me about it when I was 17, and I seriously have never had it not work! I guess its another version of distraction like scaring yourself etc, just a bit more inventive! Sorry it didn't work for you though good luck with other remedies, hope the hiccups go away soon!!

    I've heard a few hiccup cures like that - the idea is your diaphragm is spasming, so if you can totally focus and breath steadily sometimes you can relax enough your diaphragm gets over its crap. Lol
