  • Thanks everyone. I am pretty sure they started yesterday for me (I am 27 weeks). I work in a middle school and I asked the school nurse who use to be an OBGYN nurse and she is almost positive that is what is happening. I just thought they were a little early but she said that they can start as early as like 20 weeks.

    they are contractions that can either hurt or not hurt and they get your body ready for the real thing.
