So you know how before I was freaking out about 
I would feel the baby's hiccups,

because I was sure feeling them up high meant she was breach?

And you know how I was told the baby is head down on Friday?

And how Blake and I both were shown how to feel her head?

I keep feeling hiccups up high again... 
but we feel her head down low.


I googled, and apparently many women with head-down babies (confirmed with Ultrasound) feel hiccups in their ribs. Crazy.

I copy and pasted this from one forum, because I never even thought of this, and it makes a lot of sense to me in regards to a lot of things in this pregnancy.

"such a great question! my boy is definitely head down (confirmed again via u/s 2 weeks ago) and i feel his hiccups ONLY up high!!! i am pretty sure i feel his little bottom "bouncing" with each hiccup. i've felt VERY little down low this entire pregnancy ... and today i was wondering if having had a previous csection has left some of my lower area more "numb", if that makes sense. for instance, i am still numb around the area of my incision ... 10 years later! i constantly feel him up high ... moving almost nonstop most days, wiggling, squirming, pushing, shifting ... but maybe a few times total have i felt anything down lower."

Anyway, I found that so intriguing and insightful I thought I would post it.

  1. be thankful for the up high hiccups! When Cala had the hiccups, her head kept hitting my cervix, NO FUN!!! So glad she is where she is supposed to be and you have great care givers who care enough to teach you how to find her head!! That's awesome!
