feeling braxton hicks already?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm 11w 4d today and felt some uncomfortable tightening this morning- it definitely felt like braxton hicks that I had last time, but started more towards the middle of my pregnancy.  My uterus felt hard when I touched it too.

 

Anyone else feeling that this early?  I'm sitting down resting, with a big glass of water and it feels better.  Should I be concerned?

I read last time around that braxton hicks actually happens occaisionally throughout your entire pregnancy, just you usually can't feel them until later when your uterus is bigger. Still bring it up to your provider so they know and you guys can monitor but it's probably fine =)

yes, I am feeling a lot of tightness, in general, and also when I strain my muscles like when I turn in bed of pull myself up from laying down.  Some of this may be due to constipation also.  Sometimes when I sit down a feel a slight pain/ strain in my bowels.
