When did you start feeling baby move and get Braxton Hicks?
With #2 (and then again with #3 and this one, as well as one I lost later on), I was already feeling baby move by that time as well. (actually this time I was so nervous about picking up a HB after my history, so I was laying on the floor praying about it and felt a tiny little wiggle- that's the only accurate way I can describe it- in the very lower left so I put the doppler there and sure enough, HB! That's after a couple weeks of trying- I pick up a HB around 8 weeks generally until this time- and not finding it anywhere) And my BH have started as early as 7/8 weeks with subsequent pregnancies, and then I usually hit a point in the early 2nd tri where I stop feeling them for a few weeks. The uterus begins contracting pretty much from the start, but most women just don't feel it that early on.
Some people will say it's impossible, but there are a few of us out there who are extremely hyper-aware of our bodies, and IMO it makes perfect sense that we would be able to feel things that are exclusive to pregnancy. I don't see why it's even debatable. LOL
I did not feel the baby move till 21weeks, which caused me some anxiety as I had experienced two later term losses before. It was suggested to me that since my placenta is anterior this time that it was absorbing the feeling of movement till then. Now at 31 weeks there is lots of movement every day and I am so thrilled with every moment of it!
I never was aware of having BH in any of my previous pregnancies. Feeling hyper aware this go round so I'm wondering what the next weeks may bring...
