  • You have them all through pregnancy. I felt my first one inadvertantly around 14 weeks when I was poking around to find my uterus and felt it ball up lol. When I started feeling them from the inside, though was about 25 weeks. I had them early and often. By the end I probably had 30 a day.

  • In my early 20s; it varies from woman to woman. I've heard of it being later and earlier than that. They can be brought on by dehydration and from being in one position for a long time. Try walking or sitting to come out of it. And drink lots of water.
