it was confirmed at 29 weeks for me, but thats only becuase i explained my feeling and the Dr said it was braxton hicks (first time mum so was not sure what the feeling was). it probably started around 27 for me.

I have been having them quite regularly from 20 wks, I didn't have any at all with my first pregnancy

Sometimes I think I confuse BH with the baby kicking and rolling it's limbs about.

Every time I exert myself (lots of hills around here) since about 14 weeks. with DD I had about 2 BH at 41 weeks. This pregnancy is a whole different ball game!
