Braxton Hick Contractions

This is my second pregnancy and ive already starting experiencing braxton hick contractions at 17 weeks. They are not frequent at all, but i have one or two a day.

Is this normal so early on in pregnancy?

These are probably not Braxton-Hicks contractions but stretching of the ligaments.

Hi there,

If you read previous postings and from what i can remember one only starts experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions only start around 30-32weeks. You are probably just experincing normal cramping.....You should just get it checked out by your gynae to be on the safe side...

Take care!
