Why a baby in the stomach is hiccuping
For a day your baby in the womb makes so many different movements. Fortunately, the future mommy feels only a tenth of the actions of her baby. In the third trimester of pregnancy, you must have at least ten movements per day. But how do they differ, these feelings of "butterflies in the belly"! Such different: here the kid has put out the handle, and can, it is a leg? And now he is drumming right on the stomach. However, you can feel very strange movements. They are like rhythmic tapping or jerking, which can last more than half an hour. Definitely, every future mother will be concerned about this unusual behavior of the baby, but when she finds out the reason, she may smile - the baby hiccups in the belly! Yes Yes. He really hiccups! It's very touching, but how do you know if it's dangerous for a crumb? And also because of what is this happening?
The judgments of specialists in this regard are very different. Almost everyone agrees that for a baby the hiccup in the womb is absolutely safe. So, like, there's nothing to worry about. However, there is a group of doctors who believe that if a baby is in the stomach, then perhaps he has hypoxia or oxygen starvation. Subsequently, the same experts reassure mom that it is not the main symptom. Still, if a child is hanging in the stomach, and this is accompanied by sharp and rather painful tremors, it is worthwhile to see a doctor who is watching your pregnancy. Most likely, he will appoint an ultrasound. These results can confirm or exclude the possibility of hypoxia. Do not worry! Practice shows that 96% of the babies who were hiccups, being at the mother's abdomen, were born without any signs of hypoxia.
There are various assumptions on this topic. In fact, the process of hiccups is a rhythmic contraction of the diaphragm, which is provoked by a "clamp" of the nerve that connects the internal organs of man. The brain in this case gives the signal to the diaphragm to release it by jerks. This is exactly what happens when a baby in the abdomen is hanging. Do not worry about this. After all, if this process occurs, then the process of forming the central nervous system in your crumb is completed. There are other opinions on this matter. They say that the baby hiccups, while in the stomach, if he swallowed by accident more amniotic fluid than usual, and the future mother, who abused sweets, is to blame for this. The child also liked the taste, so he swallowed, and then had to push out too much. Experts say that through the hiccups the child learns to swallow and breathe independently, training his lungs and diaphragm.
