  • you start having braxton hicks very early in the pregnancy... it could just be that since you're more experienced in being pregnant, you might recognize them better. if it's something you're concerned about, however, i'd talk to your doctor

  • Due to lose muscles from previous pregnancies its very possible to feel bh contractions that early....If they are really hurting i would talk to your doc and see what they zone as we all know is after the 1st trimester so you can never be too sure of what your feeling when your still in the ??? zone. But i felt them at 16 weeks so you may be just fine!
