Random LOUD individual hiccups

Does this happen to anyone else? I will just randomly give one really loud hiccup. It is very random. It can happen anytime of day regardless of what I am doing or whether or not I have recently eaten. I guess it is like a hiccup - but its a little different sometimes. And its so loud that it almost sounds like a squawking bird or animal or something. lol

I'm not worried about this or anything. Just wondering if it happens to anyone else. I call it a pregnancy hiccup. Hopefully they will stop after pregnancy anyway! lol

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

Me, me, me!!! Ok, I thought I was the only one, but I guess not lol. My DH thinks it's the funniest thing he's ever heard. Sometimes they even throw me back a little b/c they are so strong. It feels good to know it's happening to someone else, and also to think that it will stop when my little girl gets here!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

Me too! It kind of feels like my body is trying to suck in air and blow it out at the same time! And it sounds ridiculous! I tell my dh that (along with my uncontrollable burping-lovely) its the baby telling him he loves him!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

OMG I thought I was the only person who did that! Although, I can't blame mine on pregnancy. I've had those for years. Everyone who knows me just laughs!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

They are what my family refers to the "Murray hiccups". My Nana had them, my Dad had them and I have them. Sometimes they are so sudden and loud and jolting that they hurt. I also have been doing these pretty much my whole life - can't blame the baby for it in my case!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

Had them my whole life too!! I literally have had people staring at me to see what that horrible sound is!! My husband can't stand them. My brother dies of laughter every time and he even recorded me doing it. How embarrassing!!!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

I'm guilty of that as well! It also happens when I eat spicy hot food, or drink something ice cold....and also just out of the blue!

Re: Random LOUD individual hiccups

I have had these individual hiccups for years and they are becoming more and more frequent and beginning to be painful and longer, have to be heard to be believed. I am not pregnant, and one of my sons and his son also have them. Leads me to believe there is a familial link and not necessarily something that will go away. I recently had my gallbladder removed and was blessedly silent on the hiccup front for almost two weeks which gave me reason to believe I was cured! But almost as soon as the tenderness from the surgery went away, the hiccups returned.

Makes it darned hard to play hide and seek with the grandkids.
