  • I started feeling BH at 18 weeks, so you're not too early to be feeling them, but if they get uncomfortable call your dr. and stay hydrated, once or twice I thought I was in labor because of BH and it turns out that I was actually dehydreated and that was causeing the BH in the first place.

  • It's never too early to feel BH. Ok there may be a point that is too early, but not 26weeks. BH are just you're body figuring things out and getting prepared. It's possible to lead into early labor but not likely. Good luck and hang in there!
