I found that with each pregnancy the BHs were earlier and stronger. I don't remember any at all with ds1. With ds2 they started in the last 4 weeks or so. With dd they were much earlier and sometimes strong enough to be mistaken for actual labour.

There have been a few threads on this and I think it's fairly common. My best friend had bh from 24wks in her third pregnancy and they were considerably more painful that in her previous pregnancies. Sore enough to take her breath away and make her stop what she was doing.

If you're concerned though call your midwife just for some reassurance.
