    try one of these

    get a spoonful of sugar and swallow it whole. Dont chew it or let it melt...just swallow it.

    if that doesnt work...try a spoonful of peanut butter.

    flutterby Fly away!

    Relax your body.

    Slow, deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth - slowly - Like you would do if you were doing a relaxtion technique. Twice. If you hiccup during that, start over.

    Then breathe in and hold your breath while pushing out your chest muscles and keeping the rest of your body relaxed. Hold your breath until it is just starting to be uncomfortable.

    Then slowly exhale through your mouth. Breathe in slowly through your nose and exhalw slowly through your mouth twice.

    Always works for difficult child and me.

    The peanut butter works for us. L has had hiccups on and off since I was pregnant with her, so we've had a lot of experience.

    My brother swears by the dead bug cure. Lay on the floor, on your back, and lift your hands and feet in the air.

    Funniest thing you ever saw.

    Ok. A couple of hours later I'm laying on the floor with arms and feet in the air and peanut butter and sugar in my mouth. I'm trying to swallow but I hiccup it back up.

    I don't get them often...maybe once a year or two, but when I do, they are really a pain in the rear. (Gosh... I can't even type it. It's a banned word. I thought I was being gentle. I even tried twice with clever disguises.)

    They're gone, Stang. Not sure if the BOO helped, but thanks for the try.

    Abbey - I'm curious - did they go away after the White Horse question?

    Abbey,
    Next time you get them try this: Put a spoon (or in your case maybe a spork:)) in a glass of water, rest the back of the head of the spoon on your forehead (the handle of the spoon is what goes in the water)and drink the cup of water. I've tried this many times over the years with my students. Hasn't failed yet!

    Star* call 911........call 911

    Sure Cure......;)

    Go get a kitchen chair
    Put it on your front lawn
    Turn on all the lights in your home
    Open every door and window
    Pull back all the blinds & curtains
    Turn on the stereo full blast
    Remove all your clothing
    Walk out on the lawn and sit in that chair
    Wait for the police to arrive

    They'll put you in a nice jacket, lace it up, take you to a sweet little bed and breakfast...give you a dose of Haldol...and you'll forget all about the hiccups. :tongue:

    OMG, Star...subtract the jacket and I'd be in heaven. You put me in one of those things and I'd die of a heart attack. I guess that would cure the hiccups.
