When can we get Braxton Hicks?

I was wondering when we may feel these Braxton Hicks. When have people felt them, how many weeks were you and did you leak abit due to baby pushing and kicking so much as i am 27 weeks and this baby is VERY VERY active, never felt anything so active, unreal and very hard. My pertner felt the bed shake the other night and sain what the hell was that. I said that was a hell of a hard boot from our baby,lol

Never had any last time round. Or indeed any signs of labour until 13 hours before she arrived.

Currently 28 weeks with a very active one, but nothing as yet.

Congrats, by the way!

I had one really strong one when pregnant with DD, think i was about 28 weeks. It woke me and i just felt so much pressure like i was about to burst grin Nothing after that though.

I have been having them on and off since 27 weeks with this very active baby.
It was enough for me to think 'this isnt right' and actually go to the MLU.
However they were just BH and now I ignore them mostly

From about 16 weeks.

I'm 33 weeks and have had some really big BH's for the last 3/4 weeks.

Scared the life out of me the first time it happened, and occasionally they seem to come in batches of about 5 in 30 minutes which normally results in me starting to get the maternity bags ready to go in the car just as they stop....

Didn't notice them until the last few weeks with my first child. Now with my fifth I honestly think I've been feeling them since the end of the first trimester.
The very hard kicking tends to tail off as they get more crowded later in pregnancy. You still feel movements but they aren't so violent.

I've been having Braxton Hick's since some time around 20 weeks. Am now 31+4 and they're getting worse (to the point where they start off any time I do anything "strenuous" like get out of bed or walk around...) also a very active baby here! I do think he might set them off sometimes.

Since 17 weeks. Am 21+4 now, getting them sometimes up to 3-4 times a day. Sometimes none at all.
