Only like once a day or so I'll really notice one.
I thought it was all in my head till a couple nights ago I felt that tightening and just happened to be walking by my bathroom mirror getting ready for bed and about got whiplash jerking around for a second glance
My belly was almost sticking out in a point! (I just have a small pooch right now so it was very noticable and drastic
It's not painful at all...
Just a sensation
Anyway just wandered if I was all alone

a) I felt them at 16 weeks with Rachel
b) my uterus is bigger than 14 weeks
I read somewhere that you feel them earlier in subsequent PGs, because you are more aware of what they are.

I get them whenever DH is driving the car. For me, any stressful situation brings them on.
Riding with my DH driving is a, ahem, "stressful" situation, too! He generally feels comfortable getting really close to the cars in front before he brakes or changes lanes. I'm a much more careful driver, so I would never get so close. Plus, my reflexes are better than his, so I'm already pushing the "imaginary brake" almost a full second or two before he starts using the real one.... Riding with him is like going on a looong roller coaster ride, one small woosh of adrenaline after another!
Sorry to hijack, returning to regularly scheduled convo now....
