    Never with DS1, but I had my first with DS2 at 14 weeks. I'm 16 weeks now, and I have them every night.

    Can I ask what they feel like??
    I don't think I had them with my DS and I'm now almost 15 weeks and haven't had any.

    10 weeks!

    I had them strong and regularly with DS (first pregnancy) but don't remember how early they started, I think around 20 weeks.

    With my second pregnancy I'm 100% sure I was having them at 10 weeks and they were very distinct. I got between 5-10 a day until 20 weeks, then 10-15 until 30 weeks and in the last 9 weeks I was getting 20+ a day, nearly all of them past 20 weeks were strong enought to stop me in my tracks (and I have had two long, drug free births so have a high pain tolerance!). My midwife said I most likely had an 'irritable uterus'.

    Winterbubs1012 - they feel like a tight ache for me, and make your bump go rock hard and funny shaped depending on how the uterus has 'shrink wrapped' the baby
