    Hi girlies.

    Hope you can help me. How far gone were you when you first had braxton hicks?
    I'm 19+1 and this morning I've had tightenings, and period type pain across my back and tummy. Is it too early for BH's? I had 3 in the space of about 15 minutes. I haven't had any since but I have a dull ache in my lower stomach.

    Help....I'm a bit worried :cry:

    I'd call your mw tbh...

    I've had BH from around 15 weeks... My mw told me they weren't normal at that stage although they are... however, I never had pain like you describe with them... Bh's aren't painful. Just uncomfortable...If you are having tightenings accompanied by period type pain and back ache... go see your mw.... :)
