Braxton Hicks..?

Is it fairly normal to have B.H practice contractions as early as 24 weeks? I've been having them for about 2 weeks. It's not constant, but I get them during my active part of the day. They can get quite uncomfortable to where i need to sit... Should I be concerned or normal?
This is my third pregnancy, with my first I went into labor at 26 weeks, but that was special circumstances, never had b.h leading up to the where my water broke. My second I was induced at 40 weeks..

I will mention this at my next appt, but curious.

It's normal. I've had them since 12 weeks and I've heard some women get them at 6 weeks. Mine were uncomfortable when I first started getting them, but now I just get that tightness and breathless feeling. As long as they aren't painful and there's no bleeding then it usually means it's okay.

 It's normal. I had BH contractions with my second starting around 20- 22 weeks I think? It was crazy early and continued throughout my pregnancy. To the point that I didn't realize I was actually in labor because I thought they were just BH contractions. I showed up at the hospital 7cm dialated and thought they were going to send me home :)
