This is my third baby and I'm starting to have Braxton Hicks. Anyone else?<br><br>
It just seems much earlier than my other two pregnancies.

I have them LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS and lots. I was just looking around the web today to figure out WTH. Usually the suggestions are to rest and drink more water. I'm so sick of peeing every 15 minutes!<br><br>
Today I read an alternative. Try shifting from whatever you were doing when they started: if you were being active slow down; if you're resting move around. What worked for me this afternoon was drinking hot tea and focusing on taking deep breaths.<br><br>
I had them a lot last time around, too, but NOT this early. I was that person whose belly totally seized up every time someone wanted to feel the baby. I guess it's just the way my uterus works: overtime! I kind of wish it didn't.

I was going to post about this too. I just started getting them at 15ish weeks. I was surprised. I don't remember getting them anywhere near this early with my other two kids.

I feel pretty dense for asking this but can any of you ladies describe what they feel like? I'm curious!

It feels like a really tight feeling, like how your belly feels when you do sit ups, except it's localized in your uterus area.
