I've heard that braxton hicks (or at least feeling them) are way more common after your first pregnancy. I don't honestly think it has anything to do with when the baby's coming, just that our bodies have BTDT so we feel it more.

Hmm. Not sure about risk of pre-term labor if conceiving before 18 months. I would really like to know though as Olivia was 13/14 months old when we conceived Josiah.

Here's some good info. How many weeks are you?

When do Braxton Hicks Contractions Begin?
Typically, you should start experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions around your 28th week. This being said, early Braxton Hicks contractions can start during the second month in some women. You may find that you don't even feel these contractions the first few times that they happen. If you were pregnant before, you may find that this time around your Braxton Hicks contractions are actually much stronger.

Braxton Hicks contractions really begin to come on in the third trimester. They also tend to get more intense the closer you draw to your due date.

for me BH have started earlier and earlier in my pgs... but was NO indicator of baby coming sooner. The only reason why my last 2 were not induced is cuz my water broke.

So for me. nope, BH means nothing
