Braxton Hicks at 16 weeks?


Has anyone else experienced braxton hicks at 16 weeks? My stomach isn't going completely hard but im getting the feeling in my uterus and fluttery heart (if that makes sense?) that you get at the beginning of a contraction. This is my fourth baby and i rarely got them, even in later pregnancy, with my others. It probably started over a week ago? Thanks for any thoughts/advice

It's possible . They say they can start any time in the 2nd trimester. I started getting them at 18 weeks with my first. As long as they arnt painful I wouldn't worry

I'm pretty sure I was having them last night. I made a post about it, "Is this a contraction." I received lots of feedback if you'd like to check it out.

Oh yes..like I posted in another thread about this, I've got them since 9 weeks. My midwife just said that its because my body knows what it's doing now that I've been pregnant several times and that is very normal. Some days are worse for me then others..today I've been having them strong all day!
