contractions?? Rss

Hi how early can you get braxton hick contractions?
I got them in my first pregnancy but no until the 2nd trimester.
I'm 7-8wks preg and getting them (i think!??) VERY strong. If I was 9 mths preg I would assume i was in the very early stages of giving birth!
They started 2 days ago and they get stronger each day (on and off each day) Genrally all day long but at times very distracting!
Oh wow someone else like me.
I am 10 weeks and this is my 3rd child and i have been getting them 2-3 weeks now but I thought nah they couldnt be.
Are yours worse after sex? (sorry id too much info)
Also when I am relaxing in a warm bath I seem to get them aswell.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. If you are concerned you need to go to your doctor for a check up. Sometimes in early pregnancy you can experience some strange aches and pains that settle down as the pregnancy progresses but if in doubt get it checked.
Best wishes,
Alex.
