Quite Interesting. Taking in 3 DEEP breaths (not letting them out) and holding it in works for me everytime.

My remedy consists of laying on a hard surface (or firm mattress) with your head and shoulders hanging over the edge. Raise your arms above your head and let them hang for about 30 seconds. This seems to stretch the diaphragm and usually stops my hiccups about 90% of the time

my southern husband (now deceased) always said to think of the last rabbit you saw. You have to envision the color, what it was going, what was the weather like the day you saw it. You have to really get all this in detail. And you know, it does work.

Yeah, holding my breath works. But a few things... hiccups in babies that are not born yet are supposed by some to be helpful in strenthening the diaphram in preparation for breathing. And some of the things they listed as having no functions in humans totally do have functions. For instance, the tonsils are part of the lymph system, and actually are not recommended to be removed these days unless they are repeatedly infected. The thymus glad they mapped in the useless body parts category is by far the stupidest thing I've ever seen. The thymus gland is responsible for the production of T Cells, which are necessary cells for fighting disease and preventing recurrences of illnesses.
