Maybe it's because this is my 3rd so I am noticing it sooner, I don't know, but it's bizarre. I feel that tightening feeling in my lower abdomen CONSTANTLY. Not painful of course, so I am not worried that they're real contractions.
I've honestly just never heard of this before and you'd think I would have it all figured out by now. 17 weeks seems a bit early- I can't even feel my baby's movements yet let alone braxton hicks? That's something that I didn't start feeling until at least 30 weeks with the last 2 pregnancies. Curious if anyone is in the same boat
