    Is it normal to get them at 18 weeks? I'm definitely not dehyrayed, but it seems awful early to get them

    I have had them earlier with each pregnancy and this time got them at 17 weeks. I did however have a water infection and since being treated for that they have definitely eased off. I think it's quite normal for them to start earlier, or at least for us to feel them earlier because we know what they feel like but if you start to feel unwell, have a sample dipped to check for infection.
