So I am 6 weeks and expecting my 3rd baby this is my 2nd pregnancy btw. I know what they feel like I had them  from about 12 weeks on with my twins but this time I feel like I can feel them even though a lot of sites say it isn't possible to feel at 6 weeks I will be 7 weeks tomorrow. Am I going crazy or what! lol?!!!

I doubt it's braxton hicks. It's probably just cramping from your uterus starting to expand. I had that with my last pregnancy and that's what my doctor said it was.

I did read that feeling symptoms earlier in second, third , ect pregnancies is possible and my sisters swears she to felt them that early with her third child.

I have cramping it doesnt feel like that it feels like that tightening feeling of braxton hicks lol it doesn't worry me or anything I just found it weird that I thought I felt them that early ( if it IS them)!

My doc said you can get them anytime starting at conception/implantation
I'm not surprised if its your third your body already recognizes whats going on so its starting earlier

Well 3rd baby 2nd pregnancy! I just thought maybe I was crazy but I was packing for a move yesterday and when I laid down to relax I felt what felt like the tightening. So I asked my sister today and she agreed it could be I just wanted someone else to tell me that perhaps they felt them early with other pregnancies! I better rest and drink a lot more water! lol
