how soon can you start feeling Braxton hicks?? i know with elijah i started feeling them around 22 weeks, maybe a little earlier.. but i'm 15 weeks today, and i swear i've been feeling them for about a week now. my Dr. doesn't care, and says "oh honey, your too early still, its probably just growing pains". but it isn't the same feeling . anyways, experiences with this?

ETA: the reason i'm worried about BH contractions, is because my body treats that as actually contractions, and they cause me to dialate

If its not your first? right from as early as 12 weeks.

Sad but true.

I am 17wks and have had them for 4-5 weeks now. I have been being monitored for them and I am on Procardia 20mg every 3 hours for contrax. Plus they placed at cerclage a week ago wednesday.

Good luck hopefully they will listen to you. I changed doctors for that reason mainly and lil other reasons.. This is my 5th pregnancy I am pretty sure like you that I know my body LOL... its not growing pain. Now I can watch my stomach ball when I have them.

thanks girls, i'm glad i'm not crazy! . my next doc appointment is next week, and that's also when i start my progesterone shots- and they will also measure my cervix, so hopefully i can be reassured nothing is happening. am i allowed to take anti-contraction meds while on progesterone?
