I'm 23 weeks with twins and been having fairly frequent BH's for the last week or two - I can't remember how early they started with DS, but I'm sure not this early. It's ok right?

Yes. I 've been having them since Week 17 (pg with number 3), really strong ones as well.

MW said it is very good training/practice for labour. I get about 3 or 4 strong ones every day.

Mine started at 21 weeks with dd2. Sorry to say, carried on throughout smile

thanks - they're not bothering me (yet) except I can't bend over when they are happening!

Lord, I am 30 weeks with DC3, and not a HINT of them, I'm getting slightly perplexed by this at this stage, I got LOADS with DS2.. Hmm.

Mine started at 16 weeks with number 2. I quite enjoy them.
