    You get braxton hicks almost straight away but it isn't usually until 20 ish weeks that you feel them although i think it may get earlier the more pregnancies you have! I started getting them recently with this baby! It is like tightenings that can be uncomfortable for a minute so it sounds like it, maybe chack with your mw x

    Braxton Hicks actually start around 6 weeks, you just don't feel them that early... that said, Braxton Hicks shouldn't hurt at all. Try drinking a couple of glasses of water and rest with your feet up for a bit. If the pains don't go away then you should probably phone your doctor/midwife.
