Hi sweetie, the best way I can explain it is like feeling a heartbeat. You can sometimes see your belly contract with each hiccup, my baby has had them more frequently as we approach his arrival which will be Friday by induction. I wish you all the luck and blessings with your bundle of joy!

it's kind of a very rythmic movement. pay attention to how the kicks all feel alike and are all about the same time apart. it's kind of like a jump the baby does and usually about 4 seconds apart and they will usually have like 5 of them...maybe less or more but typically about 5. you will feel the exact same movement in the exact same spot.

My baby first got hiccups while I was listening to music on my TV and his hiccups were on beat with the music lol. I had no idea what it was lol. But then every single day since then he's gotten them at some point during the day. And I do mean EVERY day. They are usually about 4-5 seconds apart and constant for a while.
My son loved to position himself on my left hip bone when he got them so I always knew thats what it was.

There's no mistaking the hiccups, you feel the baby move up and down quickly every few seconds. It's hard to explain but it's just different from normal baby movement. With my first I he had them ALL the time (Even right after birth), but I'm only 23 weeks and haven't felt the hiccups yet.
