  • I've read that from day 1 you can expereince Braxton Hicks, however most women do not feel them until their last trimester. I personally started to feel them at around 34 weeks.

  • Everyone reacts to pregnancy differently, for me the braxton hicks started around 6 months or so. But I read that some women have them all throughout their term. And some women don't ever have them, or they have them and just don't feel them.

    Anyhow, I think they can begin whenever and are just your body's way of practicing for the real thing and believe me, you WILL KNOW when it's really time. ^_^

  • Braxton Hicks occur throughout your entire pregnancy. Some women do not feel them until their uteruses begin to become much larger. I started feeling mine at 28 weeks. Many women never feel them at all.
