Hiccups In The Fetus During Pregnancy 29 Weeks?
good night, i am 29 weeks pregnant. The fetus is always hiccuping every day. As far as I know hiccups are a form of breathing exercises for him at birth later, the diaphragm muscles have functioned. But if the fetus hiccups 7 times a day with a duration of 5-10 minutes is normal? or is there a problem? Please answer. Thank you
Hello Ms. Shinta! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hiccups on the fetus can begin to be felt by pregnant women in the second or third trimester. Yes, as I said, there is a theory that hiccups are a form of fetal breathing muscle training and are usually harmless. You need to differentiate first whether you feel hiccups or fetal movements. Sometimes, the fetus moves more actively when it feels uncomfortable with your position or when you eat something that is too hot, too cold, or too sweet that stimulates the fetus. If the fetus only moves normally, it may stop when the mother changes position. If you are in a position as comfortable as possible, but you still feel a regular repetitive beat, the fetus may hiccup. Although hiccups are often normal, hiccups can also be a sign of changes in fetal heart rate, changes in fetal blood pressure, disturbances in the fetus's brain, or fetus under stress. You should consult your obstetrician if you feel hiccups more than 4 times a day. Mothers also need to be vigilant if hiccups occur stronger or longer than usual. Also be aware if fetal movements usually become less and less. The obstetrician will confirm the state of the fetus and the mother's womb. If there really is a problem, the obstetrician will immediately inform the mother and take the appropriate action.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
