Braxton hicks at 14 weeks? ρiηkie ρie 3 kids; 3 angel babies; Kentucky 21902 posts

It feels like I'm having braxton hicks. It doesn't hurt, just feels like the bottom of my stomach is tightening up. Is it even possible to have BH this early? I'm 14 1/2 weeks. I'm also really dizzy. I had a lot of dizzy spells with LO so I'm not really worried about that, but it seems way early for BH.

My friend had Braxton Hicks that early however it was when she was pregnant with her fourth baby. They said it was from her multiple pregnancies. I would go to the doctor if I was in your shoes.

Yep totally normal...they usually start around 6 weeks but you just dont feel it yet. I started noticing them around 16 weeks.

I hope so. I'm trying to drink a bunch of water and see if that stops them. :?

Yep, keep hydrated and just take it easy. I was told it is completely normal to feel them very early if you've already had a LO but if they are painful and you have more than 6 an hour you should definitely talk to your dr!

Braxton hicks can start at 6 weeks during pregnancy so it could be likly that they are braxton hicks...

It could also be streching pains! I got those a week or two ago and it felt like braxton hicks! They suck but all it is, is pain because your uterus is getting bigger, and the muscles in your tummy are stretching!
