Braxton-Hicks contractions

At what stage in pregnancy do you get braxton hicks? Does it depend on whether it's your 1st or 4th baby?

T

Dear T,

Braxton-Hicks contractions (painless tightening of the uterus) usually start in the third trimester. It does not matter what number baby it is.

Sincerely,
Amy
