I read somewhere that they could start as early as 18-20 weeks.

Jill I am 21 weeks and I been gettin em for about 2 weeks now . Not alot. . Ive had em like 3 times now, once today~ I was gonna ask about this too! I hope its normal to get em so early! If people dont know what they feel like, for me at least, I can feel my lower belly/uterus area and it tightens up a lot and feels harder and tight and almost like cramping feeling comes with it sometimes.

No need to call your doctor about it. They are completely normal.
