Braxton Hicks Already????

So, for the past few days I have been getting Braxton Hicks... I read that they can start as early as the 2nd trimester but this did not happen my last 2 pregnancies, unless I was very unaware of it. I am calling my doctor on Monday to see what they say, but I was curious if anyone else had experienced them early... I am 16 weeks :/

  • Yeah, this is my 3rd pregnancy and I am having twins this time ... I started having BH contractions at around 15 or 16 weeks. (Now, I am 19 weeks). I was kinda worried about it too but my doc says it's normal : )
