    Those, my dear, sound like Braxton Hicks. I had them every day from 20 weeks on with my 1st 2, and I've had them often since 14 weeks with this one. The reason baby moves a lot is because baby is getting a little hug from your uterus. They're normal and actually start happening between 6-8 weeks of pregnancy. It's just you can't feel them yet. If you have any pain or spotting/bleeding with them, call your doctor. If they are pretty frequent and bother you, sit/lay down, relax, and drink lots of water.
