WHAT DEMI IS DOING!!!
Making sense. Demi is truly starting to experience the world around her, limited though it may be. Her brain has been working overtime developing the nerve centers dedicated to her senses, and they’re coming alive. She’s more responsive to the changes in the world around her: my activity, sounds in the environment, and even the taste of the amniotic fluid.
Pick up a hiccup. You’ve probably felt your baby rolling, diving, and kicking inside your belly. Now you might also feel a rhythmic jerking. No, she’s not tapping out a tune; she’s hiccupping. Most babies get the hiccups in utero, possibly due to an immature diaphragm having spasms. There’s nothing you can do to stop the hiccups, but there’s no need to—they won’t harm your baby now or after she’s born.
