  • I didn't get them at all when I was pregnant. I had no idea what a contraction of any sort felt like until about 4 hours before I had DD LOL :)

  • With my first it was a little later on. With my second, I was having them by four months. I was worried so I called the doctor but the nurse said it was normal and told me what I could do to slow those down. I know they can come earlier with each pregnancy.

  • I don't think everyone gets them, I didn't start having them until about the beginning of my 8th month and I haven't had many even at a week past due. It's all in the individual.

  • With both my pregnancies I never had any until about 37 weeks.

  • I didn't have any with my daughter. With this pregnancy, I have been feeling them off and on since about 28 weeks or so. I have them almost all the time these days - I am almost 39 weeks.
