I'm curious when (if you can remember) did you start feeling braxton hicks contractions?

With my first pregnancy I'm pretty sure I started feeling them around 23-24 weeks and would get them all the time. So far I haven't felt any yet. I'm guessing that's a good thing? Not really sure.

My body seems to hate pregnancy. I got them around 13 weeks with Marsi and this time I have been getting them since 8 weeks or earlier.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I can't remember with my first. I think it was pretty late in the pregnancy, and even then they were painless. I would just feel my uterus tighten.
I think with Kody (can't really remember) it was sometime either early or mid 3rd trimester. Definitely had tons of them toward the end that made me think "this might be it" over and over and over and over. Hah. Was sooo annoying. I told my body, Either get going with labor or let me be! They were sort of painful.

I had some a few weeks ago (22w?) but they resolved with increased hydration. I was sick at that time so maybe it was bc of that.

If I remember right, I was near the end, maybe 34 or 35 weeks. Around 38 weeks they changed to real contractions. Big difference.

I didn't get them at all with Jackson or if I did I didn't know what they were lol. With Jacob I got them around 24 weeks or so and I haven't had any with this one.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
