How soon did Braxton Hicks start for you? LoveMyBubbaBoy 2 kids; Michigan 3195 posts

It's my second pregnancy. I felt them before 20 weeks with my son, but I just felt my uterus get rock hard and Im 13 weeks. I know they start really early. Is is just because I know what they feel like that I caught it? It didn't hurt or anything, I could just tell.

I've been feeling them since about 8 or 9 weeks. I'm extremely sensitive to everything that goes on with my body this time around.

That makes me feel like much less of a nut job. lol. Thanks. I spotted from 5 w until last friday (13 weeks) every day and it finally stopped. Now I should be happy it stopped, but my reaction is "what changed?" Lol... :/ I loved being pregnant last time but completely forgot how nerve wrecking early pregnancy is...

18 weeks that I know of. Before that I just felt nasty RLP. This is my first baby, so I don't know what all to expect, but I was in fact 18 weeks.
