When did you start having braxton hicks? this is my third baby!

i am 23 weeks and i am having braxton hicks! some days i have them off and on all day and some days not at all! they are not regular as far as timing and not painful! they usually last a feew seconds and just kinda take my breath away a lil bit! this is my 3rd baby and dont remember this with my other 2 although my second was born at 37 weeks! i was just wondering if anyone had braxton hicks this soon!

  • This is also my 3rd and i started having braxton hicks around the 4th month! i thought it was early but i guess every pregnancy is different. They were pretty strong even back then. Have you felt them yet?

  • with my first 2 i didn't have any kind of contractions at all until they broke my water. This baby I am 31 weeks of tomorrow and I have had them throughout my whole pregnancy since I have gotten pregnant. At the beginning it worried me.
