It can occur when the child in a womb actively sucks a finger. Thereof there are active reductions of a diaphragm. The internal reasons are displays of a hypoxia of a fruit or separate symptoms of this phenomenon. Owing to a hypoxia at the child the nerve center of a brain which is responsible for motive function of a diaphragm is irritated. As a result, there are rhythmical reductions of a diaphragm.
If the fruit hiccups reasons at pregnancy are external, then the woman should not worry. The hiccups in this case demonstrates only normal life activity and activity of a fruit. But if the hiccups is a consequence of irritation of a motive nerve center of a diaphragm, then it is necessary to make continuous observation over fetation.
