Anyone else feeling braxton hicks contractions? I started feeling them ranomaly at 13 weeks. This is my 4th pregnancy so I'm not surprised. I felt them with my last at 15 weeks.

Yes - a lot of them actually. I started feeling them around 11 weeks or so. I get them more often if I need to pee lol

A couple of days ago I felt them for the first time, and was in total shock because this didn't happen before until I was around 6 months pregnant! Freaked out, I quickly consulted Dr. Google and found out that this supposedly happens sooner after having a few babies so I guess it's normal.

Still, it's such a relief to hear that I'm not the only one.

I've noticed some, especially when one of my kids pushes on my uterus, which they LOVE to do.

I haven't had any yet, but in other pregnancies I've had them as early as 10-11 weeks. I wonder what this means for me? Probably that my body is shot and doesn't know what to do anymore, lol.

I don't think I've had any..or haven't noticed anyway. I'm not sure that I've ever noticed them before.
