At the end of last week I started to get what I thought were Braxton hicks. It hardens only on my left side and then eventually goes away. I thought it was way early to be getting them (I'm 15 weeks) so I called my doctor today to ask. My doctor had already left for the day and my nurse was out, so someone else called me back. I think it was a nurse that works with another dr in the practice. She told me there is no way that I am having Braxton hicks at 15 weeks. So I asked if maybe I could feel the baby curling up on that side. She said there is no way I can feel the baby because it is way down by my pubic bone. I told her that I feel my uterus well above my pubic bone now and she just said "uh huh." They just kept telling me to go to the er if I was in pain. I told them I don't have pain and didn't want to go to the er. If I go to the er without pain or bleeding, they are just going to send me home. I just felt like I was talking to a wall, like I wasn't being heard. The conversation just went in circles. So my question is has anyone had Braxton hicks this early?
