How early did you get braxtion hicks contractions?

I'm only about 15 weeks pregnant and I get braxtion hicks contractions. They are not very painful and come and go. I'm on my 3rd baby. I know they are just braxtion hicks because I got them with my last kid but I got them the week before I went into labor. Never got them this early...anyone get them this early?

  • I started getting mine, or at least feeling them, at around 5 months or so. BUT even before you are pregnant, your uterus still has Braxton Hicks. It is just being pregnant and your uterus stretching that makes you able to feel them.

  • YOU MAY HAVE A HIGH RISK PREGNANCY, TELL YOUR DR AND LET THEM WORRY ABOUT YOU AND MONITOR YOU.
    MY FRIEND DID AND THEY PUT HER ON BED REST BECAUSE OF THE EARLY CONTRACTIONS.
    I DIDNT HAVE BH UNTIL 31 WEEKS....
