  • I think i'm feel them already i'm 23weeks with second but i started feeling them around 25weeks with my daughter. The reason i say i think its Braxton hicks is because i can't feel my uterus contracting but it gets really hard and my doctor said that it contractions so ya.....

  • I am on baby #4 and have felt them earlier with each baby. And they get stronger too the more pregnancies you have. #1 I felt them about 30-32 weeks and they never really hurt, #2 about 28 weeks, and they were uncomfortable, #3 about 25 weeks and I weent to the hospital several times for false labor cause they hurt so bad, and this time I have been feeling them since about 22-24 weeks, and the last few weeks I have had to stop and breathe a few times through them. Of course it is different with everyone, but dont be surprised if they come earlier and they hurt more this time around. Drinking lots of water does help though.
