How Early Does Braxton Hicks Start?
Hi mummies, recently I am having pain at the right side of my tummy and already few days. Is a on off pain kind. Currently at week25 6days entering wk26. Please advise? FTM. Thank you.

Braxton Hicks feels more like a tightening sensation but shouldn't come with pain. It could be the baby pressing on your tummy, but if in doubt you should check with your gynae for peace of mind.
I had one episode of squeezing pain at around 28 weeks, on left side of my belly. I think that's my first (and so far only) Braxton hicks
