When did yours start?

What did they feel like?

I am 33 weeks and I think mine are starting. Not really pleased about this, since I was hoping I would go overdue...

Braxton Hicks don't mean anything about when baby will come. I started noticing them around 28 weeks with my first and he was born 40w2d. I had them at my 20 week ultrasound with my second and she was born 39w2d.

 I figured as much... but they are still a sign that the end is near! lol. I'd like to think I have a ways left to go!

Not really. :) Mine started at 18 weeks with this pregnancy and around 22 weeks with ds1. I delivered ds1 at 38 weeks and ds2 at 37. They are a good thing, though!

This is my first baby and I think I felt my first one about 25 ish weeks? I did ALOT of walking in the beginning of my pregnancy, now that I'm 34 weeks I feel them all the time. I've gone into l&d a couple times because I don't know if they are real or not lol (like I said this is my first) but I get sent home lol I want to meet my little boy though I can't wait!! :) he's head down between my pelvis already and is all ready to go :)

I started having them around 26/27 weeks.  It doesn't mean you will be having the baby any time soon.
