Is it normal to get them so early with #2? I keep getting cramping that comes and goes, not the dehydration crampiness, but it feels like BH, where it gets hard and crampy and tight and then lets up after less than a minute or so. I didn't get them with DS until like 25 weeks..

Sarah are you feeling it on one side, or all over? I get what feels like BH just on my right side and then it goes away, but if feels kind of like the full BH that I got with Kaitlin at 30 something weeks.
Thank you Vicki... for my siggy!!

I was getting them really bad, almost constantly about a month ago. I was freaking out thinking something was wrong, then they just stopped after a couple days. It was weird. So, I think it can be normal.

They are usually one sided but sometimes they are all over.. it's not painful or anything so I'm not really worried about them it's just really weird to me for it to feel like that so early already!! It's been mostly in the past few days, it's just been kinda catching me off guard a bit..

I started having them at 8 weeks and was worried so discussed it with my OB. She said it's normal, especially with subsequent pregnancies, to have BH early. As long as they aren't regular like labor contractions they are nothing to be concerned about.

I started feeling them at 9 weeks. My doc and nurse both said they're fine as long as there aren't more than 4 in a hour.

I just started getting them. Usually this early they are triggered by dehydration, so drink up! I upped my water to 80+ oz.
