I am 20 weeks, and it really feels like BH contractions have already started, but it just seems so early. I was wondering how early they started for you?

I don't have them yet and I am 23 weeks almost... it starts different for everyone, I wouldn't worry :)

Well, mine feel like a tightening of my abdomen. Almost like the baby is wadding up in a ball and my whole stomach feels tight. Thanks girls. I am less worried now!

They say you get them from early weeks but arent aware of them. They get stronger as you go along as baby is getting bigger and gets 'squashed' more making you more aware of them! Im 29 weeks now and my whole bump tightens rather than just the bottom!

Mine started at 19 weeks. OB said that was pretty early but agreed that I was feeling BH. I ended up in the hospital at 28 weeks with pre-term contrax.

When i was pregnant with my kids i always began getting them really early, like about 13/14 wks.With my 1st I went to the doctor because i didnt know what it was and he confirmed it was braxton hicks.
