Is it normal for a baby to hiccup in the womb?. You mentioned that you're about 27 weeks along, and you started to notice that your baby is hiccuping. And this is actually a sign of well-being, and isn't something to be concerned about. So if you're noticing little rhythmic jerks, like you mentioned that you're feeling them like every second, then that's probably what it is - it's probably your baby hiccuping. The most important thing for you to do is to pay close attention to your baby's movement. And actually, while the baby is inside of you, the only way that you know that they're doing well is that they're moving. If they're not moving a lot, then that is a concern, and you should go to the hospital and get checked out.
Between 26 and 28 weeks, most babies start to move regularly, and you should feel at least 6 movements an hour. So if it's any less than this, then get rid of all distractions (sometimes we're not feeling any movements because we're distracted), lay down on your side (because this is the best position for the baby - they get the best blood flow), and start counting movements. If you get 10 or less in 2 hours, then it's time to go to the hospital.
