  • You need to call your OB & ask him or her.

    BTW - they are Braxton Hicks contractions :)

  • Hmmm I've never experienced them so early, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Sorry I'm no help on this one, here's a bump.

  • Have you called your OB/midwife to run it by them?? That would be the smart thing to do!!

  • I experienced them early and yes its normal. But they are called BRAXTON HICKS. Not brax and hicks.
