With my first I didn't have any until a couple weeks before my edd, my second around 30-32 wks and 25 weeks with this one.

I have heard that you can get them as early as 16 weeks. I am not sure of the official time but it wouldn't surprise me if you were feeling them now. All it is, is your body preparing and practicing for labor. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I didn't have any until my third pregnancy. I was 36 weeks when I started having them. They didn't hurt but they took my breath away and I could really feel the tightening. I also lost my mucous plug for the first time. It was a pregnancy of firsts lol.

You can start getting them any time or not at all. Every woman is different. 

Heck, you maybe getting them now, but so lightly you don't even notice.

Well your body starts doing them around 6 weeks... You can start actually feeling them at any time

With my first, I felt them around 24 weeks. 

This is my second, and I started getting them around 14 weeks.
