How Does an Unborn Baby Get Rid of Hiccups?

This baby has been getting the hiccups a LOT in the last couple of weeks.

It's such a weird feeling. They don't last long but as s/he gets bigger and stronger they become more and more noticeable.

And I had to wonder, how does an unborn baby get rid of the hiccups?

They're already drinking upside down (well this one is anyway!)

You can't scare them that well.

And they can't breathe so holding their breath is not an option.

I'd really like to know how they do it so quick! I could do with a quick fix to my own occasional hiccup fits!

  1. Haha - i never actually thought about that! The hiccups was one of the weirdest sensations though... kind of like tickling from the inside!
