    Hi

    I've had a couple of tightenings - normally only once, and at night, when i first lie down on my side .Not sure if it is Braxton Hicks, but it definitely feels like my muscles contracting - then it stops!

    i had it at 18 weeks. Now i only get it about once a week and only when i'm going to bed x

    Yeah sweetie, I've noticed them early on too....probably coz we've had babies previously and are more aware of them:hugs:

    Yeah, I've been ahving tightenings since abt fifteen weeks, Not huge but enough to be uncomfy! I have found it usually follows with a baby movement or kick. It's like it gears up for it first!
