Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

There's a pregnancy saying that what's "normal" is really what's normal to YOU. i had Braxton Hicks with my first son from about 7 months, maybe 4-6 times a day. With my pregnancy now, I've started feeling them much earlier, actually around 18 weeks! best bet is to talk to your OBGYN and see what the professional thinks. Good luck!
