This is my 2nd pregnancy, and Im 11.5 weeks along. Lately from time to time Ive been having tightening in my abdomen. Is that normal? if so what is it? i think its too early to get BHs.

Nope it's Braxton hicks. Just prepping your uterus for labor and stretching.

Are you drinking enough water/fluids? Are there any cramps/pain associated with it?

Yes, and no cramps.

Hmm, just abdomin hardening with no cramping. It is early for Braxton Hicks but not unheard of. For peace of mind, call your physician and see if everything ok. :)

BH can start around the end of the first tri, most commonly at the beginning of the second tri.
