<p>This is my 3rd baby and I'm about 8 weeks and I swear I'm already feeling braxton-hicks. Is that possible?? For the past couple days, a couple times I felt the lower part of my abdomen harden and tense up for several seconds and then release. It felt just like I remember BH feeling like in past pregnancies. Usually I don't feel them till 25 weeks or so.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok so is this possible or all in my imagination?</p>

<p>I think it is too early for BH. In my third pregnancy I got growing pains in my uterus that reminded me of BH. Is this a one time thing or is it going on constantly?</p>

<p>I could be the growing pains or what about digestive issues?  Immediately when pg, my digestive tract likes to act up.</p>

<p>It's not constantly but maybe once a day. I also feel movement down there. I thought that might be my organs shifting around. I looked it up and it said BH start at 6 weeks but you don't feel them till much later.</p>

<p>I really think it's too early to feel either, but especially movement.  I don't think the babies are moving yet, they're still very early in development.  You're probably feeling gas which feels eerily similar.  I felt my 3rd at 11 weeks which is crazy early.  But then my 4th I didn't feel until 18 weeks, he's a very laid back baby.</p>
