How early can they happen??

I'm 15 weeks, 2 days. I swear I am having sporadic contractions. Most don't hurt, but there was one that had me doubled over. I don't remember feeling this until at least 20 weeks into my last pregnancy.

I have them already and I still can't feel the baby move. They are my constant companion the last half of pregnancy and I do dilate somewhat and thin out early. Makes my labors go quick though! They are a huge pain, and with my first baby they freaked me out big time and the doctor put me on bed rest at 34 weeks when he first checked my cervix and I was paper thin and 4cm. Didn't have him until 3 weeks later, and even then it was because he induced me because he didn't want me to go home at 5cm. I was a bad experience.

Anyhow, my contractions started earlier with subsequent babies, either because I was more aware of what they feel like or because they genuinely do. I mean, your uterus contracts from the very beginning, but you're not able to pick up those feelings until it grows some.
happy about life in general

I had them about 1-2 weeks ago too, but they stopped quickly. I'm trying to keep cool and calm when they happen, take an antispastic too.

Betty, I can't feel the baby move either. I had 2 really shy waves in the belly last week and maybe one short kick while I was in the car, but I can't tell for sure it was the baby. I'm still waiting for a clear sign

Totally possible. Mine started a few weeks ago. I've felt them earlier with each pregnancy.

Yeah definitely possible. I had some around 12 weeks that had me freaked out and my Doc said it is very normal especially with a 2nd+ pregnancy.

Mine seemed to have went away but figured out that I bring them on when I am not drinking enough fluids and am really active cleaning and moving around!
