  • It's definitely always best to check with your doctor, but everything started earlier for me with my 2nd and 3rd pregnancy. Could also be that the baby is positioned really low? I did start contractions that early with my 2nd pregnancy, but I believe most doctors will say that contractions usually don't begin until after 20 weeks. You should check in with the OB. If your in pain he/she will probably want to know, plus it will probably reassure you that everythng is ok.

  • ive been having braxton hicks contractions since 12 weeks but it didnt hurt it was just pressure wut u might be feeling is round ligament pain but if it really bothers u u should ask ur doc to make sure u arent experiencing real contractions- hope that helps!

  • It may be your muscles stretching for the baby. I had the same thing with my daughter while I was working as a stocker. I ask my doc at the time and that's what he told me. I didn't work with my other two so I didn't get it again.
