  • They can start as early as 14 weeks I have heard. I have gotten one or two and I am 23 weeks. That does sound like BH.

  • It is very possible. I had pretty strong contractions at 20wks also. Thay were due to some "strenous" (wink,wink) activities. Time them and if they are erratic with no real pattern, then you should be fine. If they seem to go on every few minutes and for a few hours, thencall your obgyn. They will tell you if you should go to the hospital or not.

  • IT IS POSSIBLE AND SINCE IT IS HAPPENEING SO SOON YOU MAY NEED TO BE ON BEDREST FOR THE END OF YOUR PREGNANCY.
    DRINK WATER, IT USUALLY IS THE MIRACLE CURE.
    GET OFF YOUR FEET AND DRINK PLENTY WATER. SOMETIMES THE CONTRACTIONS IS JUST YOUR BODY TELLING YOU YOU ARE OVER DOING IT AN/OR YOU NEED MORE WATER.DONT BE TOO WORRIED, JUST WATCH FOR BLEEDING AND YOU WILL BE OK.
