    I think everyone is different really. I have not felt any that I am sure of until the last week, I do know you can feel BH as early as 20 weeks though, just something I missed out on

    I am pretty sure I was getting them around 25 weeks too, sometimes a few times a day and some days not at all. I was assured by midwife it is ok and normal.

    Renee, I believe we actually start having them from really early on... But we dont feel them til much later, but the whole time our body is preparing for birth, I have had them on & off since about 18wks, that I really noticed & I panicked but it's normal...

    I could feel "tightening" from about 15 weeks, around the same time i first felt movement. THink it was because i sat at a desk all day so the waistband of my trousers was always over the "bump", making me notice more.

    Having said that, as early as 12 weeks i would wake up and my uterus was a hard lump above my pubic bone, which would soften once i'd peed...
