  I'm 17 weeks today and my tummy has been really hard and uncomfortable. Is it possible for me to be having braxton hicks this early? I've been wayyyy over stressed the last few days as some of you know. My tummy hurts off and on and has been for the last few days. Can I be having braxton hicks already? Ive cramped with this intire pregnancy, but it is really bothering me today and it hurts at this point. My tummy has been really hard most of the day today!

It sounds like you may be having them, yes, but I'm not totally sure.. Here's a bump for you!

Not sure Momma!  I don't think I've had any braxton hicks and I'm 38 weeks.

Have you been getting enough fluids?  Being dehydrated can cause braxton hicks.

I crave water so I would think I am getting enough fluids. I have been under some tremendous stress and Im kinda worried it may be affecting the baby.
