Braxton Hick Contractions
This is my second pregnancy and ive already starting experiencing braxton hick contractions at 17 weeks. They are not frequent at all, but i have one or two a day.

Is this normal so early on in pregnancy?

These are probably not Braxton-Hicks contractions but stretching of the ligaments.
