Is it your first pregnancy? BHs are more common earlier with subsequent ones, and can be a lot stronger too. But I did have BHs quite early on with DS1 too - about the mid-20s weeks, I suppose. Talk to your MW if you're worried.
I had quite intense BH from about 20weeks with DS. Found it extremely stress full tbh they were never painful and never regular (but I'm a massive worrier ). It is completely normal and I think that when you have very active baby it is more common.
Ah, MummyBerryJuice I like the connection with active babies!
As this is my first, I've nothing to compare this to, but I have had my suspicions that he's more active than the average! At the 20wk scan the sonographer commented on how muscular his arms and legs were!
Fortunately, though usually a worrier, I'm quite calm & pragmatic about this. He's still active, there's no sign of fluid loss. And there's been nothing for a couple of hours, now!
Hi, I've had BH with all 3DC's from early on. I always thought they were something everyone experienced until this pregnancy( and MN... not around when I had my other two 10+ years ago!). I'm 28weeks with my 3rd and get several "tightenings" every day and have been having them for the last couple of months, triggered by all sorts of things. Not painful but can be uncomfortable. All quite normal, I believe.
I had them from 20 weeks with ds1 and now from 14 weeks with ds2. They come more when I'm tired, when I have a full bladder or tummy, and when I'm exerting myself. I really wouldn't worry if I were you. I like to think that my uterus is extra strong for having so many BHs.
