I will be 24 weeks tomorrow. Is it normal around this time to start feeling Braxton hicks?!
i've been having the "tightening" feel and Never really had it with my daughter. So I dunno when they start or anything

  • They say they start sooner in pregnancies after your first. As long as their not bad I wouldn't be concerned. Call the ob if you are :)

  • Yep I think it's normal, make sure you're drinking enough water though. I get Braxton-Hicks a lot if Im starting to get dehydrated.
