My son had the hiccups in utero. Odd as it seemed, they were unmistakenly hiccups.

When I was about 8 months pregnant with my son, he would get the hiccups, regularly. At first my husband and I thought it was very funny because with every hiccup my very large baby bump jumped. Unfortunately, he would sometimes hiccup for ages and it became very unfunny after about an hour!

I remember Jennifer Mee. Later, her hiccups gave her some unwanted notoriety. 'Hiccup Girl' Jennifer Mee Guilty Of Murder Jennifer Mee, who became famous when she was 15 for her incurable hiccups, lured a man to a Florida home where he was shot dead.

I seem to get them out of nowhere ... at least I can't see any connection to anything. The only cure for me is drinking a glass of water upside-down. But that's just me.

Drink a teaspoon of vinegar & it will stop your hiccups. It has always worked for me!

I hate hic-ups, so I treat them immediately. A cup/glass filled with tap water and a teaspoon. You ladle the water into your mouth with the teaspoon AS FAST AS YOU CAN. This (I think) results in swallowing the water and air simultaneously. It usually results in a couple of burps which seems to subdue the hic-ups immediately (takes less than a minute).
