I swear yesterday I had a few. My tummy felt like a wave hit and it got all tight for a few seconds. It didn't hurt, but just felt harder and I felt my muscles contracting but since I am a FTM I am not sure that that is what I felt. What do you ladies think?

Sounds like BH to me I never had them with my son but I have been having them already quite a bit this time so the nurse told me to make an appointment with my doctor just in case being as I am still being treated for threatened miscarriage.

They're normal and will likely continue throughout the pregnancy. As long as they don't hurt and you're not bleeding or dilating, you should be fine. But I would mention it to your OB just to let them know at your next appointment.

I've had them occasionally. I freaked out the other night after DTD. I had them pretty bad for an hour and they hurt a little.
