I'm starting to think I'm going crazy!! I've been having Braxton hicks for the past week! I'm only 6 weeks pregnant! This is my second child and with my last I didn't have these till well into the second trimester! Anyone else having these already??
Your uterus naturally contracts even when you're not pregnant. That's what period cramps are and also it painlessly contracts when you have an orgasm. It's most likely that you're just feeling them earlier because you know what it feels like this time. You probably had Braxton-hick's-like contractions earlier on even with your first but didn't notice them. I am 12 weeks now and I have been feeling it for a couple weeks as well.
