Is that normal? I have been having them like crazy. I can't remember when it started with my dd...

I called my doctor but I had to leave a message..

My doctor wants to see me tomorrow, thank you ladies!

I thought it seemed a little early.. I wish he would call me back!
Its been going on for about two days now, took me a minute to notice though, it's not painful. The only time I can even tell is when I'm sitting down.

Also, he's very active still, I can see and feel him moving more than ever.

 It's early but I think that is normal... I believe you start having them in your 1st tri but you can't feel them yet. But definitely check with the doc to make sure.

Braxton hicks start as early as 6-8 weeks and people usually start feeling them around 16 weeks for 2nd pregnancies. Its normal.

Him being active really doesn't have much to do with it. I've never had pre term but I have some really good friends that are dealing with it. she said she doesn't always feel them unless she's paying attention. not trying to scare you, my doc told me that Braxton his starts earlier with each child, and everybody is different. I would try to relax and wait for doc to call you back . if it us pre term there's lots they can do to prevent you from delivering.

Thank you, I was starting to get worried.
I can feel him moving around a lot though so that made me feel a little better.
