  •  With my second baby I experienced Braxton hicks from 11 weeks!!! They weren’t too bad to begin with and I was shocked when the dr told me that’s what it was due to having 1&2 so close together (my oldest was only 5 months old when I fell pregnant again) and apparently you have them from even earlier you just can’t feel them, I certainly felt mine but I learnt to live with it they got really intense toward the end but still didn’t have baby until 39+4!!!   Kelly
