Braxton hicks?

So, this is my 3rd pregnancy, and I've started feeling Braxton hicks already the last few days...I'm just 12 weeks today. I don't remember having them this early with either of my prior pregnancies. Any other BTDT moms already feeling these things?

I've noticed them as well. It's mostly when I sit down after I take a walk or clean up the house etc. It just feels like the bottom part of my belly is getting tight for about a minute or so.

This is also my third and I have also been feeling soe BH for a few weeks. I have read conflicting info about it, but the science says the begin in the first trimester but aren't noticeable by the mother until well into the second trimester. BS! I know what I am feeling, as do you! (side note, I have read that sometimes a uti can present itself in this early stage as BH contractions... Mght want to mention it to your doc)
