I either didnt get them or didnt notice/feel them with my first. But I started getting bh's around 21 weeks.

I started getting them at 22wks and still get them. My tummy will get really tight and sometimes I will get sharp pains all over my belly. I told my Dr and he said as long as they aren't timeab le or very painful no bleeding etc.. then it's fine. He told me when I do get them to drink lots and lots of water and relax and lay on my left side because that helps blood to your uterus. Since I have been drinking more water I find that I only get them when I have a really really busy day.
