Anyone else got them yet? With DD I started getting the around 25 weeks (but didn't realize what they were at the time - I thought the baby was pushing herself against the outside of my uterus with her back or something). Well, I'm 19weeks and guess what? Braxton hicks today! Ugh I forgot how I hated them.


Anyone else?

Umm, for some reason my vagina started having spasms a while ago... not sure what that was though.

Yep, I started getting them at 14 weeks this time. However I have some I have to breathe through and some that cause pain in my back. I get them on and off all day no matter how much water I drink :/ but I will definitely take them over the real contractions I had with DS2 this early!

I've been having a few too recently that I have to stop and breath through. Once I sit for a while though they seem to taper off. Some days are worse than others for me and I can tell when I need to drink more water but even that doesn't always work.

Hmmmm. I've never heard of BH coming so early in a pregnancy. Learn something new every day, eh?
I've had some BH start last week (at 38 weeks). I few times I thought I was actually in labor, they hurt so bad! But as soon as I relax they go away.

I had two yesterday and it wasn't until it happened the second time that it registered what it was. They seem to start sooner with each pregnancy. I'm not worried though. I had them during my second pregnancy starting between 25-28 weeks? and he was still 1.5 weeks late...

Yeah, I've started having them but I'm not worried either. I had them pretty regularly with my son and he was late. I agree that they seem to start earlier with each pregnancy.

I'm not worried about going into early labor...I recognized them as BH and no actual contractions, but I thought it was weird to get them so early! I feel better that I'm not the only one, though.


We all will have to suffer together, I suppose!

Oh wow BH didn't even cross my mind until this post. I had told DH it feels just like she is pushing out with all her body twice yesterday. It doesn't scare. It's nice to put two and two together lol.

I've been getting them the past few weeks too. Right now, they don't really bother me though and I haven't had too many (usually just a couple each day). I didn't get bh until the last couple weeks of pregnancy with my first. I have read that bh start earlier with each pregnancy. That seems to be the case in our ddc so far!

I must just be really unusual. This is our 5th pregnancy and I don't recall BH ever starting until the last month or so of the last trimester.

That's what I thought it was with my DD at first! It wasn't until later on that I figured out what was "really" going on.

I think I started getting BH yesterday. I'm not certain that is what I am feeling, but sounds like it from what I've read.

I'm wondering if that's what I've been having the last couple days?? I don't remember anything like this with DS at all. Do they make your belly hard?

Yeah, they can. I remember being fascinated by it the first couple times it happened to me with DD, lol.
