When did your Braxton Hicks start?

I am 23 weeks Friday and have been having Braxton Hicks contractions for maybe a month or so. It's my second baby so maybe I am just feeling them earlier, or don't remember from last time. So....when did you guys first notice?!

  • I never felt them until my third pregnancy around 30 weeks or so. When I was pregnant with #2 at one appt., in the third trimester the doctor told me I was having a braxton hicks but I didn't feel it at all. My sil used to complain about them all the time. With all four of hers she felt them early on.
