  • It's perfectly normal. I had them early also, if they are very strong and you are concerned, lay down for awhile and they should go away. As long as there is no heavy bleeding and severe pain everything is fine, rest easy. Good Luck!

  • I had them early as well. If they get stronger and closer together than call your doctor, other than that you're just fine. I would have them throughout the day every day, but they never got any more intense so I didn't worry.

  • Totally normal! Make sure you're well hydrated and rested, and if you're still getting them, then that's just how it is for you. I got them around 20 weeks with my first, and they were a regular part of my pregnancy from then on. With each pgcy I've gotten them sooner and sooner - my fourth I started noticing them at about 10 weeks, before I even felt his kicks. Starting around 6 months, I can even time them LOL... I've gone to term each time (even 10 days past my due date once!)

  • I also started having them at 25weeks (29 now), I have a history of miscarriage and early labor so my doc sent me to the ob triage at the hospital. I was getting them there but they were mild and I was not dialated so I got sent home. I am getting them now and they are painful but not consistent so I just put up with them. Damm those BHs! It's been 8 years since my last I guess I am getting some practice for the real thing...lucky me :)
