Good grief, I so don't remember having this many Braxton hicks this early! But Good gravy, hello! I know they aren't contractions... I'm not worried about that just WHEW!

With Ds I didn't have them til in my late 20's/early 30's weeks of pregnancy. Then by 32 weeks I had real contractions that continued i til birth. Probably why I was already 4cm by the time pitocin got involved!

Eta 20 weeks 3days today


Proud that just survived the 2nd deployment and doting mama.
Freedom is NOT free!
RIP to our KIA friends, thank you!

Re: Braxton hicks already!?!?!

make sure you're drinking plenty of water. one of the main causes of BH is dehydration. it's common for them to start at or just after 20 weeks.
