BH...when did you start feeling them?

So I am wondering when you all started to feel BH contractions? I am around 21 wks, but could really be closer to 24wks (it's complicated). I swear that sometimes I feel like I am having BH contractions already and didn't know if it was way to early and if I should be more concerned.

This is my 3 pregnancy, with my youngest almost 14months, if that makes a differance. Thanks for the help!

I am 16 weeks, had my first bh at around 13 weeks. Fortunately I haven't had that many since then. If you are having a lot of them there are a few things you should check. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This is always the biggest contributor to my bh. Also if they keep up frequently, you may want to call your dr., uti's are notorious for causing bh contrax. Not that having bh means that you have a uti, but your dr may want to test you.
HTH!

I never had any. Every body is different (and every pregnancy, so I hear)

I apparantly had them constantly from 29 wks on but never realized it. My midwife joked saying I was in constant contraction.

Around 16 weeks. Earlier than previous pregnancies (this is my 4th). but doc says that's normal, just like it's normal to feel the baby moving sooner, etc. It's also a sign of dehydration in some, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids.

Early this time... like around 10-11 weeks. This is my third pregnancy and I am bfing as well, so i think that brings them on, plus i notice whenever I have a full bladder I generally get one, or maybe it's just that it's more noticeable when my bladder is full.
