Everyone gets them around 6 weeks but most people won't feel them until halfway through and some lucky ladies can never feel them! I started noticing them at 15 weeks so waaaaay too many months of discomfort

I'm 31 weeks and I still never experienced them, some people are different. Every pregnancy is different so you could get them or not.

I started getting them around 16w. I was a little bit nervous the first time because I thought it was too early and that something was wrong. 23+1 now and baby is doing fine.

I never got them with my first child, but this pregnancy, I got them in the 2nd trimester.
