They don't necessarily "start". I had them from early on. I was VERY active. I was an avid exerciser and ran through my 5th month. They got really noticeable from 7 months on. They say if you get more than so many per hour you should get off your feet and drink a glass of water. My doc said they can start due to stress and dehydration. BH aren't horrible things. I worried about them until my doc explained them as my body getting ready to have a baby! From then on I relaxed about them. Good luck!
