    They Suck

    Getting the hiccups sucks bad, but I can almost always get them to go away quickly with a glass of water or by holding my breath. My friend drinks a little bit of lemon juice and it cures them every time for him. Weird.

    Makes Me...

    When I get the hiccups after a while I feel nauseous. My son is the same... when I was pregnant my son would get the hiccups everyday in utero. It was the coolest thing to watch my belly at that time.

    I Have the Hiccups

    I have the hiccups right now and I cannot seem to get rid of them.  I wish I had some peanut butter.  One scoop and they're gone.  Too bad.  I guess I'll just have to drink water upside down or something.

    Painful

    When I get the hiccups, I actually hiccup VERY loudly and almost sound as though I am violently inhaling. It physically hurts and upsets me enough that, if they last longer than a few minutes, I feel like I want to start crying.
