Do I feel contractions in early pregnancy?

It is possible to feel contractions during early pregnancy but they should not hurt. Contractions during early pregnancy are known as Braxton Hicks contractions. If you feel them you will probably notice your uterus gets hard and forms a ball. If they hurt or come at a regular pattern you need to call your doctor. Some women will feel contractions in early pregnancy and some don't.
