Has anyone started having Braxton Hicks contractions yet? I have, and they're getting kind of annoying!

I have for about 2 weeks now. Never had them quite this early before, they're pretty uncomfortable but not painful...

I haven't had any. But I didn't have any with DS either. In fact, I didn't have a contraction until after my water broke and they started pitocin because I wasn't having any. Maybe my body doesn't like contractions!

It basically just feels like your stomach {wherever your uterus is} is tightening. It's not painful, but it can get a bit uncomfortable -- especially if you have a full {or partially full} bladder!

I did some research, and BH actually start around 5 weeks, but you don't feel them because {I think} your uterus is still too small for it to be noticeable.

I think I felt a few yesterday. I didn't start feeling them until around 30 weeks or so with DS. DS kicked me in the stomach a good bit in his sleep the night before last, so i wasn't feeling so great most of the day yesterday

I've had them for a few weeks now. They really get on my nerves because I always really get them when I am holding Darcy or rocking her to sleep.

I've been having them since about 9 or 10 weeks. They are far worse for me when I am on my feet too much, don't drink enough water, or have a full bladder. I didn't get them until 16 weeks with DD, so I was not so happy to get them early with this baby.
