    2 things about BH, firstly, how early do they start? and what do they feel like??
    As the other night i had a sharp pain all through my bump and it felt all tense, only lasted a couple of minutes then went, then little mr wasnt moving for a few hours after. Everythings fine now and i havent had anything like it since but it freaked me out a little.
    Anyone shed any light??

    Braxton hicks can start in the second trimester.
    I find that they are the weirdest feeling (i kind of like them :dohh:!).. Your belly goes tight all over, usually only lasts a few seconds or so! Im not sure about the sharp pain as generally braxton hicks arent painful (just uncomfortable) BUT then everyone is different and i have heard girls say that they get period type cramps at the same time.
