They can start much earlier than 35 weeks, but not all women have them. Sometimes you can have them and not really notice. They usually just feel like a tightening, or your belly will feel more tense and hard. Don't worry too much if you aren't having them though.

Oh ok. I do feel like, not Sharp but tight pains in my lower stomach close to my hips. Could that be it?

I started getting them at 22 weeks and it felt like a lot of pressure in my entire belly and the whole thing would tighten up n get hard

I don't feel when I have them so I'm not sure what its like but sometimes my stomachs really hard so I'm guessing that's it.
