Who all has them already? I started getting them at 17 weeks this time and the last few days they have been happening even in the morning and by evening they are strong enough to slow me down and get me panting. If they hurt at all I'd be worried.

I'm sure part of this is caused by not drinking enough. Water bloats my stomach up so bad so I can't drink as much as I'd like.

Been getting them since about 8 weeks. I still am currently having a lot less than in my 1st pregnancy, so that is a good thing. I probably right now get at least 6 a day.

I wouldn't know one even if I had one. I only had about 3 contractions total when I had DD so I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for. I do cramp every now and then but no tightening that I know of. I hope you feel better soon!

I drink water too. I have an irritable uterus. So if baby moves too much, it will set them off. Hes an active guy, but they are no where near the level they were with my 1st. Might be because I have a desk job this time.

What do they feel like? Sometimes I get a tightening feeling, it doesnt hurt just kinda makes my stomach harder it feels like, but I have no idea if its just the baby or if its braxton hicks? I feel so new to all of this lol

My entire stomach turns into a rock. It goes from squish to rock. It feels like a muscle cramp to me.

It's definitely a tightening and then maybe a little discomfort but not too bad. It doesn't last long at all or rather it shouldn't last long.

I get them on occasion and have been for a few weeks. They've been happening earlier and earlier each pregnancy.

I had a killer one this morning and I think it's what woke me up. Either that or rolling over after waking up triggered it. Lasted nearly a minute, and my abdomen was SO HARD.

I've been getting mild ones for several weeks already.

I had them for a few hours on Saturday night but they were stress induced (my dad races at our local racetrack and he wrecked...bad. He's okay which is what is most important but the car is not). Other than that they're very infrequent.

Btdt moms, do Braxton hicks get worse with every pregnancy even in strength?

So far I think I am lucky enough to suffer from nothing but stupid round ligament pain! I am hoping at least until about 25ish weeks that I don't have any as they might freak me out and make me think I am going into pre-term labor. I have been instructed if I have more than 2-3 in a hour to call the midwife asap.

I started getting them a couple of weeks ago. They are infrequent and usually when I am overdoing it, or need more water. Mine have become more frequent with each pregnancy and feel about the same as other pregnancies.

Not that I've really specifically noticed.

Don't think so -- mine so far right now are less frequency, but the same strength/annoyance.
