  • Generally people can get them at any point in their pregnancy. However, most women don't really start experiencing them until 5-8 months in.

  • I'm 37 weeks and haven't noticed any yet. Doctor says its normal and that some women never notice BH. Sometimes it feels like he balls up in there though.

  • Depends on the pregnancy. Some don't feel them at all. I started feeling mine at about 23 weeks.
