I think I started having them around the same time, andsince I have twins, I have been measuring ahead the entire time. My doctor seemed unconcerned with it, as long as they were not too often and would stop if I changed position, drank water, etc. This is my first pregnancy, so I don't really know what is normal or not, but I do think some people just feel them more.

Mine started at 7 weeks, but mine are painless, my stomach just gets really really tight and then soft after a few seconds. I thought I was having Braxton and i looked it up sure enough it starts at 6wks but most don't feel them.
