Did you know that hiccup you feel from baby could be from something you ate?! Plus, we’ve got tips for getting baby into a prime position for delivery!
Ever feel a rhythmic movement inside you? It’s probably baby hiccuping! And get this: these hiccups could be caused by something you ate!
Baby’s taste buds are well-defined by now, which means they can taste the food you eat via the amniotic fluid. And just as spicy foods can cause you to hiccup, they can cause baby to hiccup as well. (Note that there’s a 2-hour delay from the time you eat something until baby gets a taste!)
In other news, Baby Natural probably recognizes your partner’s voice by now, so invite them to tell baby how much he loves her… and you.
You’re at the beginning of your 3rd trimester! Woohoo! Can you believe you’re in the homestretch now? I know for me, this is when my pregnancies got very real—and I got my butt in gear to prepare.

I’ll never forget when my mom gave me safety pins at my first baby shower. She thought I was nuts for cloth diapering, but was trying to support me as best as she could.
Little did she know that cloth diapering is MUCH EASIER and MORE MODERN than hanging rags on a clothes line.
Now, I’ll be truthful here. I wasn't excited about scraping baby poop into the toilet. But after we set up our cloth diaper station, it wasn't as bad as I thought.
And after learning about the waste and trash that disposables created, I knew I had to go with cloth. Curious? Click here for everything you need to know about cloth diapering.
If you have to go with disposables for whatever reason, be sure to pick a green brand, as the conventional ones have nasty chemicals in them that you won't want near baby's bum. Click here to see our green diaper showdown.
