This is my fourth pregnancy and I'm usually really in tune with my body. I've been feeling the baby moving for awhile now and felt occasional kicks here and there for the past two weeks. But the last couple days, I feel that "tightening rolling sensation" consistently. It doesn't hurt or anything and I would normally think it's the baby moving. If it is though, it's one active baby! I just wouldn't think the baby would be moving so consistently like this. It almost kinda scares me bc it kind of reminds me of Braxton hicks contractions but surely that wouldn't start yet, right? Idk I guess I'm freaking myself out bc I don't know if it's the baby moving or if it's the beginning of my uterus contracting. I've had a history of PTL with my first child so maybe that's playing into my fear of going into early labor. IDK....you would think that having 3 kids under 4 years, I would remember EVERYTHING pregnancy wise but I'm drawing a blank here.

I've been having that same sensation since 17-18 weeks. It very well could be braxton hicks... I was told you can be having them starting around 10-11 weeks. I'd say its pretty normal. My belky is actually doing that as we speak lol

I kinda like feeling like it's the baby moving though. Lol. Gives me a reason to smile. But yeah, you're probably right...it's probably good old braxton hicks starting! Yay :/

I've had braxton hicks as early as 16 weeks! So that's probably it.

Lol. I guess as long as it's just braxton hicks contractions I shouldn't worry so much. Just never thought it was possible to start this early. I didn't have any with my first. I just went into full blown labor. Lol. With my girls I had pretty bad ones but I still don't remember them this early. Ah well, I guess it's bound to happen much earlier after you've had 3 kids, baking your fourth! Lol. I don't like them either.
