Hi ladies! I was in yoga class this afternoon and experienced what I think was a braxton hicks contraction. I didn't feel anything, but noticed when I put my hand on my belly that it was oddly hard. It went away after 20 seconds or so. I think I noticed something similar last night in bed and a few days ago when I woke up in the morning.
Is it too early for braxton hicks contractions? Should I be worried about this?
No worries. Based on what I've read and heard, it's really common to be experiencing BH contractions at this point. And if they aren't painful, they are definitely BH. If they are painful and regular you should get it checked out though.

My pregnancy book says that they can start around 22 weeks, but like the movement of the baby, people (well I guess women) can be more or less sensitive to the feelings. I had lots a while ago when I overdid it, but nothing recently.
I got nonpainful BH all the time with DD, and noticed them a lot earlier this time because I knew what to look for.
(It's also not unusual for one's uterus to contract as a result of DTD.)
