Hiccups are the result of a irritation of the diaphragm, Its a membrane/muscle below your lungs which causes air pressure in the area around the lungs to rise and decrease by moving, causing your lungs to take in and push out air.

by lying down you´re relaxing it a bit, so in some cases it can ease hiccups, but it depends on whats irritating the diaphragm.
