    • Hiccups

      Hiccups run in my family. I get hiccups at least once every 3 or 4 months. I am not sure about my mum, dad, sister or brother. I am not sure whether it is hereditary. My children get frequent hiccups. When I was pregnant with them, I felt hiccups in my womb. It is a very unusual feeling, like a heart beating at the womb. It can go on for 5 minutes. My son does that a lot in the womb, like every other week. My daughter does that slightly less, once a month.

      My son and daughter now have hiccups once in a while. At one time (happen to both before), I was about to put my child to sleep and then hiccups came. Don’t you hate it? I have to get rid of the hiccups and then put them to sleep. For my son, I usually feed him with water and it will be gone. As for my gal, she seldom takes water from the bottle, I need to spoon feed her. When she was a baby, all I have to do is to make her cry and the hiccups will disappear. You may say, how cruel but it has to be done.

      One day I learn something amazing. I was very tired and was putting my gal to sleep. She was tossing and turning, was about to sleep, and hiccups came. Aiks! I was very lazy to get water for her. I decided to ignore it. She was trying to sleep as I was patting her buttock with her going HIC HIC HIC. Suddenly the HIC sound was getting less and less. Next, all I heard was ZZZzzzzzz from her. Lesson learnt that I just have to ignore her hiccups and not make a fuss out of it. Yesterday, the same thing happens.
